Persistent Time-Frequency Shrinkage for Audio Denoising

In many audio processing applications, signals are represented by linear combinations of basis functions (such as with windowed Fourier transforms) that are collected in so-called dictionaries. These are considered well adapted to a particular class of signals if they lead to sparse representations, meaning only a small number of basis functions are required for good approximation of signals. Most natural signals have strong inherent structures, such as harmonics and transients, a fact that can be used for adapting audio processing algorithms. This paper considers the audio-denoising problem from the perspective of structured sparse representation. A generalized thresholding scheme is presented from which simple audio-denoising operators are derived. They perform equally well compared to state-of-the-art methods while featuring significantly less computational costs.
