Acronym: Digital Signal Processor
A very large term for describing how a computer alters any incoming or outgoing signal. This can work for audio codecs, modems, or otherwise. Some DSPs only do one thing, some are software and some are hardware based.
For example, in audio production, DSP includes reverb, chorus, flange and other special effects. DSP can be used to make a sound source improve in quality depending on the acoustical environment.
