About

My name is Ben Holmes and I am passionate about audio and music technology. I have nearly completed my PhD in Electronic Engineering at the Sonic Arts Research Centre, Queen’s University Belfast. Throughout the PhD I have published at the DAFx conference on my research mainly into component and circuit level identification in an attempt to improve the fidelity of physical circuit models.

On this site you will find my collected work, some modelling/research related blog posts, a brief CV (a longer one available on my LinkedIn), and a link to research resources from my publications. Shoot me an email if you have any questions about what’s here :)

Viva completion: On the 26th of March I successfully defended my thesis “Guitar Effects-Pedal Emulation and Identification”, with examiners recommending minor amendments.
