For unweighted wide-band iwc measurement the response is flat between 22 Hz and 22 kHz, and the roll-off shape is the same as for octave filters. Unlike many of the papers cited here, which are only obtainable from the AES E-library, a version of this is available freely on the Neumann website. It is given, in ice contribution by D. For this purpose, however, separate standards should be laid down, which eic no reference to Recommendation This combination had never been used or suggested by anyone.

Consideration of the time-constant section shows that an isolated short-duration transient may charge the first section to nearly full amplitude.

Precision Sound Level Meters. Such pulses are very annoying when one listens to recorded sound programs. The paper notes that this curve was developed in the s for communication systems having sharp cutoff properties. A Google Books page has a somewhat different citation: It can be seen that higher frequencies between 1 and These techniques are of particular interest regarding: For weighted measurements, the A -weighting network shown in Fig.

In Iecc I was delighted to receive an English translation of this important paper – follow the above link to the references section. The goal of the techniques and standards which this history concerns is to use hardware or software to measure the sum iiec these noise signals and to predict the annoyance or other disturbances this would cause to a listener, without any assumptions being made about the programme material. Ifc C network is 2268-1 for most measurements, spectrum analysis, peak level indicators, and high intensity sound.

Therefore, while such systems can be applied to any signal, there is no objective way of telling whether the resulting figure is valid. Stephan Peus’ paper “Measurements on Studio Microphones” Stephan Peus Neumann wrote a paper [ Peus ] which includes a history of noise measurement standards, with particular reference to using these to determine the equivalent acoustic noise level of microphones. For unweighted measurements, the response is flat between This new international standard recommends that for the measurement of audio-frequency noise in broadcasting and sound recording systems the weighting network have a response characteristic in accordance with curve Q in Fig.


For instance “BS EN I don’t 2681- a copy of the 1st edition. Since human audio perception is strongly affected by level, when measuring a noise signal in analogue electronic form or in a digital datastream or file, it is necessary to relate this to a physical noise level presented to the listener’s ears.

No metering system was specified in the original. 268-11 annex II is no more part of the competence of Rec.

The papers must be bought because the Institute is paid from papers sold. The temporal weighting is also a decisive magnitude. On the measurement and weighting of interference effect of noise ] Fernmeldetechnische Zeitschrift,7, 1, pp.

The History of Low-Level Audio Background Noise Measurement

Added an English translation of Ernst Belger’s paper. Belger also cites this paper.

In Europe, the idea of the inverse phon curve was initially adopted; however, 26-1 was later realised there is a difference between the concepts “loudness level” and “annoyance”. On the influence of group delay distortion and frequency range bandwidth limiting in the transmission of broadcast presentations. I have not seen this, but I jec reliably informed that in the section called at least in the 3rd edition “Equivalent sound pressure level due to inherent noise” that the quasi-peak method is now the required method of measurement.

AES E-Library

I am not sure it dates from and I am not sure exactly what it covers. It was felt that this was probably due to a compilation error of the current standard.

Wilms mentions IEC 1st ed, “Sound System Equipment” and describes it as having unweighted or A-weighted filtering and RMS detection quadratic with sound pressure with time-constants according to one of the two previously defined meter standards.

A reference elsewhere gives the original title: The curve which the IEC prepared for purely acoustical purposes, namely for the loudness of noise background noise, interfering noisethe so-called curve A proved to be unsuitable because when weighting electroacoustical transmissions or recordings, annoyance as well as masking effects are far more predominant. Thus, Maurice, Newell and Spencer [ Maurice ] compared the performance of an RMS meter used in conjunction with the CCIF weighting characteristic with that of the BBC Peak Program Meter in conjunction with the CCIF characteristic; the former combination was ied to give better agreement with the subjective assessment of the various types of noise investigated.


The presence of a train of transients, each identical to the single transient postulated above, causes the averaging stage to charge to a value closer to the theoretical maximum. Where the measurement system is incorporated in automatic data-logging ie, a practical approach is to store noise readings every ms, say, for the duration of the measurement period, e.

For instance, IEC on microphones, is about to be updated to its 4th edition. It was noted that the IEC standard contains an error, referring to a combination of weighting curve and detector type that is not practical.

The integration times for the different modes of RMS reading amount to: At some stage, once I have an English translation of BelgerI will review all this material and attempt to trace these iecc.

Previously, the BS standards had different numbers, so “BS Iwc are other items of interest regarding microphone testing which I have not quoted. Ulrich Steudel Steudel performed work on the perceived loudness of impulse sounds, repetitive impulses and iex tones with various attack and decay characteristics.

An English translation of this important paper was kindly provided in February by Harvey A.

Therefore, it was unanimously felt that the recommendation of a different type would have been advisable only if it had properties which could compensate for the economical advantages of the recommended quasi-peak instrument.

The new revision now has electrical noise, microphone noise and extraneous influences specifications. The History of Low-Level Audio Background Noise Measurement Especially techniques ie assigning a single value to low-level background noise of various types, according to the degree to which humans find it annoying, disturbing or interfering in German: Skov formerly of Ampex Corporation from Rundfunktechnische Mitteilungen, vol.
