Madisetti and D. B. Williams). Copies provided. Written Assignment 1. When uniformly quantizing a signal, what is the improvement obtained by adding one more bit per sample? 2. What are the three auditory properties that determine the lowest level of a sound that can be heard? 3. Assume an audio signal is divided into 16 frequency bands with energy in different bands as follows --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Band 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

How many bits you would need to code the 7 th band and 9 th band respectively? Suppose original signal is represented with 8 bits/sample/band. 4. What are the three principle steps in perceptual audio coding? Draw a block diagram showing these three components. 5. What are the differences between the three layers of MPEG1 audio in terms of the techniques used and the audio quality produced at the same bit rate? 6. What is MP3 audio? Suppose you are a sales person in an electronics store. Explain how does it work to a potential customer who is looking to buy a MP3 music player....
