Title
(EN) Systems, Devices, and Methods for Synchronizing Audio
Abstract
(EN)

Disclosed herein are new techniques carried out by a computing system for determining delays of various components of an audio system to allow for accurate correction of these delays, which may improve the audio quality of live performances for listeners who hear audio reproduced by loudspeakers at live performance venues. In one implementation the computing system, which may comprise a transmitter device and one or more receiver devices, may be configured to perform functions, including receiving a first audio signal, receiving, via an audio input interface of the receiver, a second audio signal, and determining, based on the first audio signal and the second audio signal, an audio delay that is associated with the second audio signal. The computing system may be configured to perform further functions, including based on a determined cross-correlation between a downsampled audio signal and a filtered second audio signal, determining the audio signal delay.
