    A basic and interesting project for an electronic engineering student. Perhaps something with digital signal processing? You could use a wave-file as source, apply filters on it and write the result in a different wave-file. Then you can hear the differences by playing the wave-file.

    I am an ee student too. Like shiro said, thats what most simple projects are in ee. We have done both image file and sound file compression.

    Do a google search for lossless compression.

    Perhaps this may give some inspiration:

    http://www.ulib.org/webRoot/Books/Nu.../bookcpdf.html

    I used to be an ee student, we did also a lot with microcontroller programming for small systems. Like a PID-based cruise control for an electromotor, or a controller for a steppermotor. Other things we used to do were on the field of data acquisition, put the output of a sensor to a AD-converter and display the signal on the computer screen. Or control a LED based clock using the parallel port.

    Well, it depends on what you call useful. When writing sound processing software for the Windows platform, I usually use the wave-audio functions from the Multimedia Audio part of the Platform SDK for recording and playing audio. These are described in the MSDN library.

    There is a lot of info on digital filters available online. I don't know which kind of information you're looking for. Most filters I've created are designed by my own, they are not very difficult, but you have to understand the theory of digital signal processing.

    They are mainly based on playing with the spectrum.

    Some useful search terms for Google are:

    - dsp
    - sound processing
    - signal processing
    - digital filters
    - audio effects

    A very nice online book, which can also be downloaded, on digital signal processing can be found here:

    www.dsp-guide.com

    There are many tutorials and introductions to DSP, a few are:

    www.digitalfilter.com

    Thanks Shiro, I'm interested in how things like Cubase, for example, are done. Also real-time guitar effects and so-on. I'll have a look at the links later.
