New Enhancements to the Automatic Noise Removal (ANR) System Utilizing Improved Noise Statistics and Multi-Band Processing

We recently introduced a novel Automatic Noise Reduction (ANR) algorithm for the removal of wideband stationary/non-stationary noise from audio [1]. Current noise reduction techniques exhibit certain undesirable characteristics. Distortion and/or alteration of the audio characteristics is a common problem. User intervention in identifying the noise profile is sometimes necessary. ANR uses a novel framework employing dominant component subtraction and restoration and performs better than conventional techniques in subjective tests. Here we describe three enhancements to ANR. The first of these increases the level of noise removal for the special case of stationary background noise. The second is a new tool for improving the temporal envelope coherence and yields additional noise removal. The third is a multi-band processing tool for conditioning time-frequency envelope for reduced listener fatigue.
