Using Noise Substitution for Backwards-Compatible Audio Codec Improvement

A method for representing error in perceptual audio coding as filtered noise is presented. Various techniques are compared for analyzing and re-synthesizing the noise representation. A focus is placed on improving the perceived audio quality with minimal data overhead. In particular, it is demonstrated that per-critical-band energy levels are sufficient to provide an increase in quality. Methods for including the coded error data in an audio file in a backwards-compatible manner are also discussed. The MP3 codec is treated as a case study, and an implementation of this method is presented.
