Frequency-Zooming ARMA Modeling of Resonant and Reverberant Systems (PDF-549K)  
Matti Karjalainen, Paulo A. A. Esquef, Poju Antsalo, Aki Mäkivirta, and Vesa Välimäki    1012
Complex linear, time-invariant modeling of a system with high modal density is extremely difficult, for example, room reverberation. A frequency-zooming method based on an extension of previous techniques is explored for high-resolution modeling of systems with many poles and zeros. Such models can be used not only to generate accurate time responses, but also to serve as the basis for inverse filtering and equalization.

Passive All-Pass Crossover System of Order 3 (Low Pass) + 5 (High Pass), Incorporating Driver Parameters (PDF-202K)  
Neville Thiele    1030
A third-order low-pass channel combined with a fifth-order high-pass channel can be designed to produce an overall all-pass crossover between the two channels. Because the two channels are approximately in phase over the crossover region, the approach is more tolerant to variations in driver parameters and physical offsets in the cabinet. Although the approach adds a modest cost, the benefits appear to justify the incremental complexity.

Experimental Evidence of Cooperation Phenomena Application to a Loudspeaker with Rub (PDF-159K)  
Fernando Bolaños    1039
Unlike a linear system, which preserves the frequency integrity of each signal component, a nonlinear system can shift energy from one spectral component to another. Although the theoretical basis of energy cooperation is well known, the author empirically demonstrates the phenomena in an electroacoustic experiment involving a voice coil with friction. When random noise is added to a sine wave, the nonlinear process moves energy from the noise to the sine frequency. This is analogous to the way that a limit-cycle oscillator converts the dc of the power supply into a spectral component.

Iterative Combinatorial Basis Spectra in Wavetable Matching (PDF-327K)  
Alan Ng and Andrew Horner    1054
As an alternative to the combinatorial approach to wavetable synthesis, an iterative method is proposed to increase the computational efficiency while achieving a comparable effectiveness. The algorithm was evaluated using tones from the trumpet, tenor voice, and Chinese pipa (a plucked stringed instrument). The number of wavetables dramatically influenced the rms error. In addition, subjective listening tests determined the degree to which the synthesized signal was equivalent to the original.
