  • A maximally-dense encoding for n-choose-k
    2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 20 May 2022
    At the heart of the opus audio codec is a maximally-encoding for combinations with replacement and sign[1], which is n-choose-k where n can be reused and there is a sign for each chosen dimension. Or stated another way, n dimensional integer vectors where the sum of absolute values add to k.

    This enumeration can be implemented with the same kind of recursion as in the link, with a little bit of elaboration. Though interestingly, it (and the formula in the link) can also be be implemented with recursive table lookups quite efficiently, and for small fixed N with closed form formula (also true for the simpler combination code in the link).

    These maximally dense algebraic codes can be designed for a great many possible applications.

    For example, for a generational rolling cuckoo filter Pieter Wuille and I came up with an algebraic code for coding 4 sorted generation numbers with the requirement that all 4 are within a window of half the total range[2]. In prior published work on cuckoo filters used a large table of all possible values of combinations with replacement (to efficiently pack small sorted numbers). We found the algebraic code to be faster than a big dumb table, presumably due to cache locality, even though our fastest encoder/decoder still use tables but only tiny ones (at least for the sizes we were considering).

    A challenge for implementing these sorts of functions is that their inverses often require operations like integer square or cube roots which are not particularly fast unless the ranges are small enough to implement them with tables.

    Got it, that makes sense -- thanks for the help! Another commenter pointed out some of those oddities in the flags; It looks like something opus is computing/setting in their makefile which the dependency is invoking.
  • Music Software Development: What We Develop and How Much It Costs?

    Background noise removal distorts sound when playing music. We switch it off. ~40 kb/s is a standard bitrate for a voice call. Music needs 128 kb/s minimum. Opus supports up to 510 kb/s – so we increase it. We increase the number of audio channels from 1 to 2: from mono to stereo.

    My name is Greg Maxwell. I am a retired. My main areas of interest are cryptography, digital signal processing, error correcting codes, and computer networking. Well known organizations I previously worked at include Juniper Networks and Mozilla. I am one of the authors of the Opus audio codec (among other codecs). I've contributed to many open source protocols and packages. I mostly entertain myself with recreational mathematics and reading. In the distant past I achieved some minor notoriety for my contributions to cracking the CSS protection scheme for DVDs and for publishing a huge cache of historical and public domain academic documents that JStor was keeping behind a paywall. I was one of the earliest developers of Bitcoin and developed numerous parts of the system including the cryptographic code and many of the privacy protocols used there. Some peer reviewed publications I've coauthored include 1, 2, 3, and 4. My partner is an attorney for creative commons and has previously served on the board of organizations such as Wikimedia and the Free Software foundation.

    Opus is a newer alternative to MP3 that's royalty free and you get smaller files as well for the same quality.

  • Using Opus in Unity3d.

    If you don't own Dissonance it'll be a little more difficult. You'll need to compile opus into a dll (source code here) and then write a C# wrapper to call the opus methods from C# (using DllImport).
