Wave-to-Wave Recording. Noisy on Low Volume!

Why is it whenever I record from one wave file - at an extremely low volume - another wave file, I get noise? The process is completely digital. There is no analog, no D-A, and no A-D. Why the #%!$@%!@# is their noise? Since this is not analog-to-digital, this is obviously *not* quantization noise. Quantization noise only occur during A-D conversion when the input volume and/or bit-resol...

Hi, I'm currently coding an adaption of the LBG vector quantization algorithm. At the point where you have attributed each vector to one of the code vectors, you must calculate the centroid of those vectors to become the new centroid of the code vectors. My question is this. If no vectors have been attributed to that particular code vector, then do you simply leave the code vector a...

Hi, I have been pondering about this all day and I think I need some clarification. In current GPS systems the post-IF A/D uses 1-2 bits. Since in GPS signals the SNR is -19 how can this be enough resolution to recover the signal? I am sure it has to do with DS-SS but I have not been able to find a good source that can explain the choice of levels. If anyone has any clues please let me kn...

Yes, it was the 1/N factor I was remembering or not remembering as the case may be. Like I said, when I was introduced to this part of DSP, it was given that 1/N is known to be needed to "close the loop", but there is no rational for where you include it. As to the other conversion factors, yes, they are there, but that is just a matter of the quantization levels established by
