MPEG spatial audio object coding (SAOC) is a new audio coding standard which efficiently represents various audio objects as a down-mix signal and spatial parameters. MPEG SAOC has a backward compatibility with existing playback systems for the down-mix signal. If a mastering signal is used for providing CD-like sound quality instead of the down-mix signal, an output signal decoded with the mastering signal may be easily degraded due to the difference between the down-mix and the mastering signals. To successfully use the mastering signal in MPEG SAOC, the difference between two signals should be eliminated. As a simple mastering signal processing, we propose a mastering signal processing using the mastering down-mix gain (MDG) which is similar to the arbitrary down-mix gain of MPEG Surround. Also, we propose an enhanced mastering signal processing using the MDG bias in order to reduce quantization errors of the MDG. Experimental results show that the proposed schemes can improve sound quality of the output signal decoded with the mastering signal. Especially, the enhanced method shows better performance than the simple method in the aspects of the quantization errors and the sound quality.
