Use the following data from the beginning bit. Error correction schemes can be used to embed the payload of 90 bits per 15 seconds.

- Error rate may somewhat depend on the random seed used to randomize the start time of the stego signal for detection. Therefore, the results of error rates should be calculated as an arithmetic mean of 100 simulations with an arbitrary random seed and random start time.
- The error rate of additive Gaussian noise may depend on a seed of randomize. The simulation should be done as the above manner.

- PQevalAudio v2.0 (AFsp-v8r2.tar.gz; TSP lab. McGill Univ.)
- PQevalAudio requires audio files to be 48-kHz sampling. The host signals must be converted from 44.1-kHz sampling to 48-kHz sampling using ResampAudio v5r1 which is included in AFsp-v8r2.
- PQevalAudio can not evaluate degradation of single channel of sound quality for stereo signals. If the embedding is conducted for single channel, ODGs have to be obtained from monoaural signals of the signal channel to be embedded.

- PICOLA(Courtesy of Prof. Mikio Ikeda, Yokkaichi University)
- PICOLA is a tool for pitch-invariant time-scale conversion. Time-invariant frequency-scale conversion is achieved by combining PICOLA and sampling frequency conversion, ResampAudio.
- The following is an example of -4 % time-invaliant
frequency-scale conversion using the function file (available for Octave 3.0
or above).
attacked_signal = pitch_change(stego_signal, 44100, 0.96);

- The sampling frequency conversion attack requires expansion and contraction of duration and initial time for detection at the same rate of conversion.
- For example, +10% conversion requires random selection from the initial 16.5 seconds samples (a 10% increase from the original) of the stego audio. Also, detection period is 49.5 seconds.

The following signal processing steps mimic attacks using DA and AD conversions.

- Additive Gaussian noise at -80 dB (relative to maximum amplitude of 16-bit quantization as 0 dB)
- Amplification of -2 dB to the above signal, followed by 16-bit quantization
- Linear speed change conversion (pitch and time-scale conversion) of -0.1 %
- da_ad_siml_revised.mCascade the above processing
