High-Level Sound Coding with Parametric Blocks

This paper proposes a new parametric encoding model for sound blocks that is specifically designed for manipulation, block-based comparison and morphing operations. Unlike other spectral models, only the temporal evolution of the dominant tone and its time-varying spectral envelope are encoded, thus greatly reducing perceptual redundancy. All sounds are synthesized from the same set of model parameters, regardless of their length. Therefore, new instances can be created with greater variability than through simple interpolation. A method for creating the parametric blocks from an audio stream through partitioning is also presented. An example of sound morphing is shown and applications of the model are discussed.
