This paper proposes a new aliasing cancelation algorithm for the transition between non-aliased coding and transform coding with time domain aliasing cancelation (TDAC). It is effectively utilized for unified speech and audio coding (USAC) that was recently standardized by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG). Since the USAC combines two coding methods with totally different structures, a special processing called forward aliasing cancelation (FAC) is needed at the transition region. Unlike the FAC algorithm embedded in the current standard, the proposed algorithm does not require additional bits to encode aliasing cancelation terms because it appropriately utilizes adjacent decoded samples. Consequently, around 5% of total bits are saved at 16- and 24-kbps operating modes in speech-like signals. The proposed algorithm is sophisticatedly integrated on the decoding module of the USAC common encoder (JAME) for performance verification, which follows the standard process exactly. Both objective and subjective experimental results confirm the feasibility of the proposed algorithm, especially for contents that require a high percentage of mode switching.
