Harmonic Vector Quantization

Research paper

Audio coding of harmonic signals is a challenging task for conventional MDCT coding schemes. In this paper we introduce a novel algorithm for improved transform coding of harmonic audio. The algorithm does not deploy the conventional scheme of splitting the input signal into a spectrum envelope and a residual, but models the spectral peak regions. Test results indicate that the presented algorithm outperforms the conventional coding concept.
