During the last decade, CDquality digital audio has essentially replaced analog audio. Emerging digital audio applications for network, wireless, and multimedia computing systems face a series of constraints such as reduced channel bandwidth, limited storage capacity, and low cost. These new applications have created a demand for highquality digital audio delivery at low bit rates. In response to this need, considerable research has been devoted to the development of algorithms for perceptually transparent coding of highfidelity (CDquality) digital audio. As a result, many algorithms have been proposed, and several have now become international and/or commercial product standards. This paper reviews algorithms for perceptually transparent coding of CDquality digital audio, including both research and standardization activities. The paper is organized as follows. First, psychoacoustic principles are described with the MPEG psychoacoustic signal analysis model 1 discussed in some detail. Next, filter bank design issues and algorithms are addressed, with a particular emphasis placed on the Modified Discrete Cosine Transform (MDCT), a perfect reconstruction (PR) cosinemodulated filter bank that has become of central importance in perceptual audio coding. Then, we review methodologies that achieve perceptually transparent coding of FM and CDquality audio signals, including algorithms that manipulate transform components, subband signal decompositions, sinusoidal signal components, and linear prediction (LP) parameters, as well as hybrid algorithms that make use of more than one signal model. These discussions concentrate on architectures and applications of

The FFT is used widely in signal processing for efficient computation of the Fourier transform (FT) of finitelength signals over a set of uniformlyspaced frequency locations. However, in many applications, one requires nonuniform sampling in the frequency domain, i.e.,a nonuniform FT . Several papers have described fast approximations for the nonuniform FT based on interpolating an oversampled FFT. This paper presents an interpolation method for the nonuniform FT that is optimal in the minmax sense of minimizing the worstcase approximation error over all signals of unit norm. The proposed method easily generalizes to multidimensional signals. Numerical results show that the minmax approach provides substantially lower approximation errors than conventional interpolation methods. The minmax criterion is also useful for optimizing the parameters of interpolation kernels such as the KaiserBessel function.

Abstract—In this paper, we advance the concept of warped discreteFourier transform (WDFT), which is the evaluation of frequency samples of thetransform of a finitelength sequence at nonuniformly spaced points on the unit circle obtained by a frequency transformation using an allpass warping function. By factorizing the WDFT matrix, we propose an exact computation scheme for finite sequences using less number of operations than a direct computation. We discuss various properties of WDFT and the structure of the factoring matrices. Examples of WDFT for first and secondorder allpass functions is also presented. Applications of WDFT included are spectral analysis, design of tunable FIR filters, and design of perfect reconstruction filterbanks with nonuniformly spaced passbands of filters in the bank. WDFT is efficient to resolve closely spaced sinusoids. Tunable FIR filters may be designed from FIR prototypes using WDFT. In yet another application, warped PR filterbanks are designed using WDFT and are applied for signal compression. Index Terms—Allpass, DFT, frequency warping, warped DFT. I.

In this paper, we extend the definition of dyadic wavelets to include frequency warped wavelets. The new wavelets are generated and the transform computed in discretetime by alternating the Laguerre transform with perfect reconstruction filterbanks. This scheme provides the unique implementation of orthogonal or biorthogonal warped wavelets by means of rational transfer functions. We show that the discretetime warped wavelets lead to welldefined continuoustime wavelet bases, satisfying a warped form of the twoscale equation. The shape of the wavelets is not invariant by translation. Rather, the "wavelet translates" are obtained from one another by allpass filtering. We show that the phase of the delay element is asymptotically a fractal. A feature of the warped wavelet transform is that the cutoff frequencies of the wavelets may be arbitrarily assigned while preserving a dyadic structure. The new transform provides an arbitrary tiling of the timefrequency plane, which can be designed by selecting as little as a single parameter. This feature is particularly desirable in cochlear and perceptual models of speech and music, where accurate bandwidth selection is an issue. As our examples show, by defining pitchsynchronous wavelets based on warped wavelets, the analysis of transients and denoising of inharmonic pseudoperiodic signals is greatly enhanced.

This thesis proposes banded waveguide synthesis as an approach to realtime sound synthesis based on the underlying physics. So far three main approaches have been widely used: digital waveguide synthesis, modal synthesis and finite element methods. Digital waveguide synthesis is efficient and realistic and captures the complete dynamics of the underlying physics but is restricted to instruments that are welldescribed by the onedimensional string equation. Modal synthesis is efficient and realistic yet abandons complete dynamical description and hence cannot used for certain types of performance interactions like bowing. Finite element methods are realistic and capture the behavior of the constituent physical equations but on current commodity hardware does not perform in realtime. Banded waveguides offer efficient simulations for cases for which modal synthesis is appropriate but traditional digital waveguide synthesis is not applicable. The key realization is that the dynamic behavior of traveling waves, which is being used in waveguide synthesis, can be applied to individual modes and that the efficient computational

The dyadic wavelet transform is an effective tool for processing piecewise smooth signals; however, its poor frequency resolution (its low Qfactor) limits its effectiveness for processing oscillatory signals like speech, EEG, and vibration measurements, etc. This paper develops a more flexible family of wavelet transforms for which the frequency resolution can be varied. The new wavelet transform can attain higher Qfactors (desirable for processing oscillatory signals) or the same low Qfactor of the dyadic wavelet transform. The new wavelet transform is modestly overcomplete and based on rational dilations. Like the dyadic wavelet transform, it is an easily invertible ‘constantQ’ discrete transform implemented using iterated filter banks and can likewise be associated with a wavelet frame for L2(R). The wavelet can be made to resemble a Gabor function and can hence have good concentration in the timefrequency plane. The construction of the new wavelet transform depends on the judicious use of both the transform’s redundancy and the flexibility allowed by frequencydomain filter design. I.
