In this paper an application of the Mellin transform to the digital audio effects will be presented. Namely, low-pass and band-pass like filtering in the Mellin domain will be described and used for obtaining some kind of pizzicato effect on audio samples (musical instruments, but not only). The pluck and damp effects will be obtained using filtering in Mellin domain only. The algorithm used for implementing the Mellin (scale) transform has been presented in DAFx’04 [1].
