Sample text

The PCM adaptor extracts a clock from the video sync pulses and uses it to separate the serially recorded bits. Error correction is performed after de-interleaving, unless the errors are too great, in which case concealment is used after the de-shuffle. The samples are then returned to the standard sampling rate by the timebase expansion process, which also eliminates any speed variations from the recorder. They can then be converted back to the analog domain. In order to synchronize playback to a reference and to simplify the circuitry, a whole number of samples is recorded on each unblanked line.

At (c) a transient sound arrives later at the more distant ear. The inter-aural phase, delay and level mechanisms vary in their effectiveness depending on the nature of the sound to be located. At some point a fuzzy logic decision has to be made as to how the information from these different mechanisms will be weighted. There will be considerable variation with frequency in the phase shift between the ears. 5 metres and so this mechanism must be quite weak at low frequencies. At high frequencies the ear spacing is many wavelengths producing a confusing and complex phase relationship.

A knowledge of the way it operates is essential to an understanding of musical phenomena such as pitch discrimination, timbre, consonance and dissonance and to auditory phenomena such as critical bands, masking and the precedence effect. Nerve firings are not a perfect analog of the basilar membrane motion. On continuous tones a nerve firing appears to occur at a constant phase relationship to the basilar vibration, a phenomenon called phase locking, but firings do not necessarily occur on every cycle.
