Abstract:

Audio processing systems involve complex interactions of concurrent processes. These are usually implemented using domain specific visual languages and tools more concerned with providing practical solutions than with giving formal meaning to the supplied audio unit combinators. Concurrent constraint process calculi have proved to be effective in modeling with precision a wide variety of concurrent systems. We propose using ntcc , a non deterministic temporal concurrent constraint calculus, to model audio processing systems. We show how the concurrent constraint nature of the calculus greatly simplify specifying complex synchronization patterns. We illustrate ntcc as audio processing framework by modeling unit combinators and using them ina an audio processing example.
