The MP3 Data blocks contain the compressed audio information in terms of frequencies and amplitudes. The diagram shows that the MP3 Header consists of a sync word , which is used to identify the beginning of a valid frame.
After this, the values will differ, depending on the MP3 file. The data stream can contain an optional checksum. Joint stereo is done only on a frame-to-frame basis. The MPEG-1 standard does not include a precise specification for an MP3 encoder, but does provide example psychoacoustic models, rate loop, and the like in the non-normative part of the original standard. When this was written, the suggested implementations were quite dated. Implementers of the standard were supposed to devise their own algorithms suitable for removing parts of the information from the audio input.
As a result, many different MP3 encoders became available, each producing files of differing quality. Comparisons were widely available, so it was easy for a prospective user of an encoder to research the best choice. Some encoders that were proficient at encoding at higher bit rates such as LAME were not necessarily as good at lower bit rates. Later an ABR mode was added. Work progressed on true variable bit rate using a quality goal between 0 and Eventually numbers such as -V 9.
During encoding, time-domain samples are taken and are transformed to frequency-domain samples. This is done to limit the temporal spread of quantization noise accompanying the transient. See psychoacoustics. Frequency resolution is limited by the small long block window size, which decreases coding efficiency.
Decoding, on the other hand, is carefully defined in the standard. Therefore, comparison of decoders is usually based on how computationally efficient they are i. However, some encoders such as LAME can attach additional metadata that will allow players that can handle it to deliver seamless playback.
When performing lossy audio encoding, such as creating an MP3 data stream, there is a trade-off between the amount of data generated and the sound quality of the results. The person generating an MP3 selects a bit rate , which specifies how many kilobits per second of audio is desired. The higher the bit rate, the larger the MP3 data stream will be, and, generally, the closer it will sound to the original recording.
With too low a bit rate, compression artifacts i. Some audio is hard to compress because of its randomness and sharp attacks. When this type of audio is compressed, artifacts such as ringing or pre-echo are usually heard.
A sample of applause or a triangle instrument with a relatively low bit rate provide good examples of compression artifacts. Most subjective testings of perceptual codecs tend to avoid using these types of sound materials, however, the artifacts generated by percussive sounds are barely perceptible due to the specific temporal masking feature of the 32 sub-band filterbank of Layer II on which the format is based.
Besides the bit rate of an encoded piece of audio, the quality of MP3 encoded sound also depends on the quality of the encoder algorithm as well as the complexity of the signal being encoded. As the MP3 standard allows quite a bit of freedom with encoding algorithms, different encoders do feature quite different quality, even with identical bit rates.
Quality is dependent on the choice of encoder and encoding parameters. This observation caused a revolution in audio encoding. Early on bitrate was the prime and only consideration. At the time MP3 files were of the very simplest type: Using a constant bit rate makes encoding simpler and less CPU intensive. However, it is also possible to create files where the bit rate changes throughout the file. The concept behind them is that, in any piece of audio, some sections are easier to compress, such as silence or music containing only a few tones, while others will be more difficult to compress.
So, the overall quality of the file may be increased by using a lower bit rate for the less complex passages and a higher one for the more complex parts. With some advanced MP3 encoders, it is possible to specify a given quality, and the encoder will adjust the bit rate accordingly. Users that desire a particular "quality setting" that is transparent to their ears can use this value when encoding all of their music, and generally speaking not need to worry about performing personal listening tests on each piece of music to determine the correct bit rate.
Perceived quality can be influenced by listening environment ambient noise , listener attention, and listener training and in most cases by listener audio equipment such as sound cards, speakers and headphones. Furthermore, sufficient quality may be achieved by a lesser quality setting for lectures and human speech applications and reduces encoding time and complexity.
A test given to new students by Stanford University Music Professor Jonathan Berger showed that student preference for MP3-quality music has risen each year. A detailed account of the techniques used to isolate the sounds deleted during MP3 compression, along with the conceptual motivation for the project, was published in the Proceedings of the International Computer Music Conference.
Bitrate is the product of the sample rate and number of bits per sample used to encode the music. CD audio is samples per second. The number of bits per sample also depends on the number of audio channels. CD is stereo and 16 bits per channel. So, multiplying by 32 gives —the bitrate of uncompressed CD digital audio. As less complex passages are detected by MP3 algorithms then lower bitrates may be employed. By lowering the sampling rate, MPEG-2 layer III removes all frequencies above half the new sampling rate that may have been present in the source audio.
This is easily accomplished using LAME version 3. For more info see Nyquist — Shannon. The n. A sample rate of A great variety of bit rates are used on the Internet. Uncompressed audio as stored on an audio-CD has a bit rate of 1, The software was only able to use a uniform bitrate on all frames in an MP3 file. Later more sophisticated MP3 encoders were able to use the bit reservoir to target an average bit rate selecting the encoding rate for each frame based on the complexity of the sound in that portion of the recording.
A more sophisticated MP3 encoder can produce variable bitrate audio. The final file size of a VBR encoding is less predictable than with constant bitrate. Loud Rihanna. The Gift Susan Boyle.
