Abstract

This paper evaluates a perceptually motivated objective model for the measurement of 'punch' in musical signals. Punch is a perceptual attribute that is often used to characterise music that conveys a sense of dynamic power or weight. A methodology is employed that combines signal separation, onset detection and low level parameter measurement to produce a perceptually weighted 'punch' score. The model is evaluated against subjective scores derived through a forced pairwise comparison listening test using a wide variety of musical stimuli. The model output indicates a high degree of correlation with the subjective scores. Correlation results are also compared to other objective models such as Crest Factor, Inter-Band-Ratio (IBR), Peak-To-Loudness Ratio (PLR) and Loudness Dynamic Range (LDR).
