This paper presents a method to model and synthesize the textures of sounds such as fire, footsteps and typewriters using time and frequency domain linear prediction coding (TFLPC). The common character of this class of sounds is that they have a background “din” and a foreground transient sequence. By using LPC filters in both the time and frequency domain and a statistical representation of the transient sequence, the perceptual quality of the sound textures can be largely preserved, and the model used to manipulate and extend the sounds.
