A time-varying, analysis/synthesis auditory filterbank has been developed using a new implementation of the “gammachirp”, which has been shown to be an excellent function for the asymmetric, level-dependent auditory filter. The gammachirp filter is shown to be implemented through a combination of a gammatone filter and an IIR asymmetric compensation filter; which largely reduces the computational cost for time-varying filtering. The gammachirp filterbank is designed using a linear gammatone filterbank and a bank of time-varying asymmetric compensation filters controlled by the sound pressure level estimated at the output of the filterbank. Since the inverse filter of the asymmetric compensation filter is always stable, it is possible to resynthesize signals from time-varying, level-dependent auditory representations. The resynthesis error is only determined by the linear analysis/synthesis gammatone filterbank. The proposed filterbank is applicable to various types of signal processing required to model human auditory filtering
