SCNRv2
Overview
DSP Concepts proprietary Single-Channel Noise Reduction. Version 2.
Discussion
DSP Concepts proprietary Single-Channel Noise Reduction module. This module works in conjunction with the WOLA filterbank modules. The module supports any number of channels and applies noise reduction independently to each. The input pin is mic input signal and output pin is stationary noise-suppressed signal. There is an optional 2nd output pin that outputs noise masking gain for each frequency
The module operates on any number of channels, any block size, and any sampling rate. At design time, you specify the number of channels and whether the output noise suppression mask gain output pin is active. At run time, the strength of noise suppression can be controlled by specifyin minGaindB and noiseAdjustdB The tunable parameter minGaindB is a lower clipping point of gain in dB for each frequency bin. minGaindB is a negative number in the range [-20 0]. Setting minGaindB = -10 means that the module will apply at most -10 dB of attenuation in a subband.
noiseAdjustdB is an offset which is added to the estimated noise floor. Stationary noise floor estimation is prone to be lower than actual noise level. By setting noiseAdjustdB to a positive number the algorithm will assume a higher noise floor and be more aggressive.
Smaller minGaindB and/or larger noiseAdjustdB setting configures noise suppression more aggressive. The module estimates SNR and determines attenuation of each frequency from gain table.
The module can be configured to output an optional 2nd output pin. This pin holds the instantaneous gain reduction (as a linear value) that is applied to each subband.
