Design of a Flexible Crossfade/Level Controller Algorithm for Portable Media Platforms

Document Thumbnail

The addition of a growing number of multimedia capabilities on mobile devices necessitates rendering multiple streams simultaneously, fueling the need for intelligent mixing of these streams to achieve proper balance and address the tradeoff between dynamic range and saturation. Additionally, the crossfading of subsequent streams can greatly enhance the user experience on portable media devices. This paper describes the architecture, features, and design challenges for a real-time, intelligent mixer with crossfade capabilities for portable audio platforms. This algorithm shows promise in addressing many audio system challenges on portable devices through a highly flexible and configurable design while maintaining low processing requirements.
