Audio and Acoustic Signal Processing

3D Sound Effect Analysis, Synthesis and Application Design----A Primary-Ambient Extraction Approach (slides)


In spatial audio analysis-synthesis, one of the key issues is to decompose a signal into primary and ambient components based on their spatial features. Stereo audio signals are often modeled as a linear mixture of primary and ambient components. Existing approaches like principal component analysis (PCA) and least squares (LS) have been widely employed to extract primary and ambient components from stereo signals. However, the performance and comparisons of these approaches in primary-ambient extraction (PAE) have not been well studied.

Primary-Ambient Extraction Using Ambient Spectrum Estimation for Immersive Spatial Audio Reproduction


The diversity of today’s playback systems requires a flexible, efficient, and immersive reproduction of sound scenes in digital media. Spatial audio reproduction based on primary-ambient extraction (PAE) fulfills this objective, where accurate extraction of primary and ambient components from sound mixtures in channel-based audio is crucial. Severe extraction error was found in existing PAE approaches when dealing with sound mixtures that contain a relatively strong ambient component, a commonly encountered case in the sound scenes of digital media.

Study on the use of error term in parallel-form narrowband feedback active noise control systems (slides)


Parallel-form narrowband feedback active noise control (FBANC) system has been shown to perform better than conventional internal model control (IMC) based FBANC system in cancelling multi-tonal noise. A previous paper illustrated a novel approach in estimating the frequencies of the multi-tone noise, and using an internal tonal generator cum frequency grouping unit to increase its frequency separation in each channel of the parallel-form FBANC system based on a full-band error.

On the Preprocessing and Postprocessing of HRTF individualization based on sparse representation of anthropometric features (slides)


Individualization of head-related transfer functions (HRTFs) can be realized using the person’s anthropometry with a pre-trained model. This model usually establishes a direct linear or non-linear mapping from anthropometry to HRTFs in the training database. Due to the complex relation between anthropometry and HRTFs, the accuracy of this model depends heavily on the correct selection of the anthropometric features.

Multi-shift principal component analysis based primary component extraction for spatial audio reproduction (slides)


In spatial audio analysis-synthesis, one of the key issues is to decompose a signal into primary and ambient components based on their spatial features. Principal component analysis (PCA) has been widely employed in primary component extraction, and shifted PCA (SPCA) is employed to enhance the primary extraction for input signals involving the inter-channel time difference. However, SPCA generally requires the primary components to come from one direction and cannot produce good results in the case of multiple directions.

Natural Sound Rendering for Headphones: Integration of signal processing techniques


With the strong growth of assistive and personal listening devices, natural sound rendering over headphones is becoming a necessity for prolonged listening in multimedia and virtual reality applications. The aim of natural sound rendering is to naturally recreate the sound scenes with the spatial and timbral quality as natural as possible, so as to achieve a truly immersive listening experience. However, rendering natural sound over headphones encounters many challenges. This tutorial article presents signal processing techniques to tackle these challenges to assist human listening.
