COLA Examples

So far we've seen the following constant-overlap-add examples:

In addition, we can mention the following cases (referring to window types discussed in Chapter 3): Recall from §3.2.6, that many audio coders use the MLT sine window. The window is applied twice: once before the FFT (the ``analysis window'') and secondly after the inverse FFT prior to reconstruction by overlap-add (the so-called ``synthesis window''). Since the window is effectively squared, it functions as a Hann window for overlap-add purposes (a member of the Generalized Hamming family). As such, it can be used with 50% overlap. More generally, any positive COLA window can be split into an analysis and synthesis window pair by taking its square root.
