Real-Time Implementation of Glasberg and Moore's Loudness Model for Time-Varying Sounds

In this paper, a real-time implementation of the loudness model of Glasbergand Moore [J. Audio Eng. Soc. 50, 331–342 (2002)] for time-varying sounds is presented. This real-time implementation embodies several approximations to the model that are necessary to reduce computational costs, both in the time and frequency domains. A quantitative analysis is given that shows the effect of parametric time and frequency domain approximations by comparison to the loudness predictions of the original model. Using real-world music, both the errors introduced as a function of the optimization parameters and the corresponding reduction in computational costs are quantified. Thus, this work provides an informed, contextual approach to approximation of the loudness model for practical use.
