Warped Linear Predictive Coding

Warped Linear Predictive Coding

Warped Linear Predictive Coding (Warped LPC or WLPC) is a variant of Linear predictive coding in which the spectral representation of the system is modified, for example by replacing the unit delays used in an LPC implementation with first-order allpass filters. This can have advantages in reducing the bitrate required for a given level of perceived audio quality/intelligibility, especially in wideband audio coding.


Warped LPC was first proposed in 1980 by Hans Werner Strube.
