Filtering audio signals with filters designed exclusively from frequency domain specifications may result in an audible distortion in the vicinity of sharp amplitude transitions. This paper considers the application of known psychoacoustical properties to the design of digital audio filters which minimizes this distortion while approximating some ideal frequency domain characteristics. Psy— choacoustic properties and a simple model for hearing are reviewed. A weighted least squares design… CONTINUE READING
