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.

A Study on the Frequency-Domain Primary-Ambient Extraction for Stereo Audio Signals (slides)


Primary-ambient extraction (PAE) has been playing an important role in spatial audio analysis-synthesis. Based on the spatial features, PAE decomposes a signal into primary and ambient components, which are then rendered separately. PAE is performed in subband for complex input signals with multiple point-like sound sources. However, the performance of PAE approaches and its key influences in this case have not been well studied so far. In this paper, we conducted a study on frequency-domain PAE using principal component analysis in the case of multiple sources.

Time shifted PCA based cue extraction for stereo audio signals (slides)


In spatial audio analysis-synthesis, one of the key issues is to decompose a signal into cue and ambient components based on their spatial features. Principal component analysis (PCA) has been widely employed in cue extraction. However, the performance of PCA based cue extraction is highly dependent on the assumptions of the input signal model. One of these assumptions is the input signal contains highly correlated cue at zero lag. However, this assumption is often unmet.

Linear estimation based primary-ambient extraction for stereo audio signals (slides)


Audio signals for moving pictures and video games are often linear combinations of primary and ambient components. In spatial audio analysis-synthesis, these mixed signals are usually decomposed into primary and ambient components to facilitate flexible spatial rendering and enhancement. Existing approaches such as principal component analysis (PCA) and least squares (LS) are widely used to perform this decomposition from stereo signals.
