Elimination of Impulsive Disturbances From Stereo Audio Recordings Using Vector Autoregressive Modeling and Variable-order Kalman Filtering

This paper presents a new approach to elimination of impulsive disturbances from stereo audiorecordings. The proposed solution is based on vector autoregressive modeling of audio signals. Online tracking of signal model parameters is performed using the exponentially weighted least squares algorithm.

Detection of noise pulses and model-based interpolation of the irrevocably distorted samples is realized using an adaptive, variable-order Kalman filter. The proposed approach is evaluated on a set of clean audio signals contaminated with real click waveforms extracted from old gramophone recordings.
