The traditional method of high-frequency regeneration (HFR) of the excitation signal in baseband coders has been to rectify the transmitted baseband, followed by spectral flattening. In addition, a noise source is added at high frequencies to compensate for lack of energy during certain sounds. In this paper, we reexamine the whole HFR process. We show that the degree of rectification does not affect the output speech, and that, with proper processing, the high-frequency noise source may be eliminated. We introduce a new type of HFR based on spectral duplication of the baseband. Two types of spectral duplication are presented: spectral folding and spectral translation. Finally, in order to eliminate the problem of breaking the harmonic structure due to spectral duplication, we propose a pitch-adaptive spectral duplication scheme in the frequency domain by using adaptive transform coding to code the baseband.
