The New Dynamics Processing Effect in Android Open Source Project

Audio Engineering Society Convention 145 (2018)

Abstract

The Android “P” Audio Framework’s new Dynamics Processing Effect (DPE) in Android Open Source Project (AOSP), provides developers with controls to fine-tune the audio experience using several stages of equalization, multi-band compressors, and linked limiters. The API allows developers to configure the DPE’s multichannel architecture to exercise real-time control over thousands of audio parameters. This talk additionally discusses the design and use of DPE in the recently announced Sound Amplifier accessibility service for Android and outlines other uses for acoustic compensation and hearing applications.
