Auralization of Signal Distortion in Audio Systems Part 2: Transducer Modeling

Document Thumbnail

A new method is presented for the auralization of selected distortion components generated by regular nonlinearities inherent in loudspeaker systems. Contrary to the generic approach presented in the first part the alternative approach presented here exploits the results of lumped parameter modeling in the state space. A mixing device generates a virtual output signal comprising nonlinear distortion attenuated or enhanced by a user-defined scaling factor. The auralization output can be used for systematic listening tests or perceptive modeling to determine audibility thresholds and to assess the impact on sound quality of the dominant nonlinearities in loudspeakers.
