Both Krasner and Schroeder built upon the work performed by Eberhard F.
Zwicker in the areas of tuning and masking of critical frequency bands, That journal reported in February 1988 on a wide range of established, working audio bit compression technologies, some of them using auditory masking as part of their fundamental design, and several showing real-time hardware implementations.
And the fourth group was SB-ADPCM, by NTT and BTRL.
The remaining audio information is then recorded in a space-efficient manner.
Compared to CD-quality digital audio, MP3 compression can commonly achieve a 75 to 95% reduction in size.
Because of certain similarities between these coding proposals, they were clustered into four development groups.
The first group was MUSICAM, by Matsushita, CCETT, ITT and Philips.
The MP3 format soon became associated with controversies surrounding copyright infringement, music piracy, the file ripping/sharing services MP3and Napster, among others.
With the advent of portable media players, a product category also including smartphones, MP3 support remains near-universal.Stoll (IRT Germany), later known as psychoacoustic model I) and a real time decoder using one Motorola 56001 DSP chip running an integer arithmetics software designed by Y. During the development of the MUSICAM encoding software, Stoll and Dehery's team made a thorough use of a set of high quality audio assessment material selected by a group of audio professionals from the European Broadcasting Union and later used as a reference for the assessment of music compression codecs .The subband coding technique was found to be efficient, not only for the perceptual coding of the high quality sound materials but especially for the encoding of critical percussive sound materials (drums, triangle, ..) due to the specific temporal masking effect of the MUSICAM sub-band filterbank (this advantage being a specific feature of short transform coding techniques).For example, an MP3 encoded at a constant bitrate of 128 kbit/s would result in a file approximately 9% the size of the original CD audio.Also designed as a streamable format, segments of a transmission can be lost without affecting the ability to decode later segments.The psychoacoustic masking codec was first proposed in 1979, apparently independently, by Manfred R. of his results as a relatively obscure Lincoln Laboratory Technical Report, did not immediately influence the mainstream of psychoacoustic codec development.
