Optimum time-frequency decompositions are very useful in audio coding applications, because the signal energy can be maximally concentrated even for the wide variety of audio signal characteristics. Moreover, this signal representation is particularly well suited for a perceptual weighting of the quantization noise. The well known tree structure of cascaded 2-channel filterbanks allows a very flexible optimization, leading to a signal adaptive, dynamic wavelet packet decomposition. A major drawback of this technique are strong spectral side lobes which produce clearly audible aliasing in perceptual coders. We present a new dynamic wavelet packet decomposition, based on modulated lapped transforms, which allows the same flexibility while avoiding the disadvantage mentioned above. We propose a scheme for low bit rate audio coding that efficiently exploits the high energy concentration. This new codec yields excellent audio quality at about 55 kb/s for monophonic signals
