Hi everybody,

this is my first post here, even if i read this forum for a quite long time already.

Recently i did some testing on the Opus codec an found a strange behaviour.
I encoded a file with the official 0.1.5 binaries and had a look the frequency response.
Knowing that judging quality with this is useless, i discovered a ~1000Hz /-3dB drop
around 16 kHz which is not present e.g. in Ogg encoded files.

This lead me to encode/decode a linear sweep for comparison and this finally showed
a really messed up response for the Opus encoded sweep in the HF region.
I am not quite sure if it is encoder or decoder related.
For decoding i used the official opusdec and the foobar built-in one.

Opus music sample:


Oggvorbis music sample:


Opus linear sweep:

What do you think? Could someone try to replicate or has this been
noticed already?

Thank you.
Cheers!

I noticed similar, maybe same "issue" which I guess it's just opus temperament feature

With any bitrate method,
- at 128 kbps, if I downmix opus file to mono (overlap channels), around 16 kHz there is visible boundary region (maybe related to OP observation)
- at 96 kbps larger low density strip is visible in ~ 12-16 kHz range:



- at 80 kbps there are two large strips
etc

I tested with both opusdec file (44.1k) and opus decoded from foobar (48k).
This "signature" was present on all (10) test files in larger/smaller amount then in example screenshot
