In the recent years, several techniques have been proposed in the literature in order to attempt the emulation of nonlinear electro-acoustic devices, such as compressors, limiters, and pre-amplifiers. Among them, the dynamic convolution technique is one of the most common approaches used to perform a nonlinear convolution. In this paper, an efficient DSP implementation of a nonlinear system emulation based on the dynamic convolution technique and principal component analysis is proposed with the aim of lowering the required workload and the global memory usage. Several results are reported in order to show the effectiveness of the proposed approach, taking into consideration a guitar pre-amplifier as a particular case study and also introducing comparisons with the existing techniques of the state of the art.
