Combination of Different Perceptual Models with Different Audio Transform Coding Schemes:Implementation and Evaluation
In this paper four combinations of perceptual models and transform coding systems are implemented and compared. The first of the two perceptual models is based on a DFT with a uniform frequency resolution. The second model uses IIR filters designed in accordance with the temporal/spectral resolution of the auditory system. Both of the two transform coding systems use a uniform spectral decomposition (MDCT). While in the first system the quantizers are directly controlled by the perceptual model, the second system uses a pre- and post-filter with frequency warping for shaping the quantization noise with a temporal/spectral resolution more adapted to the auditory system. Implementation details are given and results of subjective tests are presented.
