Audio Bandwidth Extension by Frequency Scaling of Sinusoidal Partials

This paper describes a new technique of efficient coding of high-frequency signal components as an alternative to Spectral Band Replication. The main idea is to reconstruct the high frequency harmonic structure trajectories by using fundamental frequencies obtained at the encoder side. Audio signal is decomposed into narrow subbands by demodulation based on the local instantaneous frequency of individual partials. High frequency components are reconstructed by modulation of the baseband signals with appropriately scaled instantaneous frequencies. Such approach offers correct synthesis of rapidly changing sinusoids as well as proper reconstruction of harmonic structure in the high-frequency band. This technique performs also a correct energy adjustment of sinusoidal partials. High compression efficiency has been achieved and confirmed by listening tests.
