Re: Gaussian vs uniform noise audibility

Eckard Blumschein writes:
Of course, complex representation of a signal requires magnitude as
as phase. (Magnitude is always positive while there are positive and
negative amplitudes.) This should once again persuade anybody that the
inner ear does not perform a complex Fourier transform.
Malcolm Slaney's review of Pattern Playback techniques:


was an eye-opener for me -- relatively simple techniques let you invert
magnitude-only, nonlinearly-processed representations back into
faithful (if not bit-accurate) audio.
