Founded in 1998, Pittsburgh Digital is an innovative engineering firm that provides product development, engineering, and production hardware for manufacturers of musical instruments and audio equipment.

DSP Software Design

Pittsburgh Digital is a recognized leader in audio DSP algorithm design for musical and audio applications, having an extensive library of our own algorithms that we can implement in your products.

We can rapidly prototype audio processing blocks in Matlab, and run them on real-time DSP hardware for your evaluation. 

For manufacturers who are unsure about a new idea or product, Pittsburgh Digital can simulate the technology in question, providing a clear picture of performance and sound quality, prior to the risk of significant investment in expensive prototypes.

We have a growing list of audio effects algorithms in our arsenal. Please call us to discuss your specific needs.
