In a MPC(Multi-Pulse Coding) using excitation source of voiced and unvoiced, it would be a distortion of voice waveform. This is caused by normalization of synthesis speech waveform of voiced in the process of restoration. To solve this problem, this paper present APC-MPC of amplitude-position compensation in a multi-pulses each pitch interval in order to reduce distortion of synthesis waveform. Also, I was implemented that the APC-MPC in coding system. And I evaluate the SNRseg of APC-MPC in 8kbps coding condition of convergence system. As a result, SNRseg of APC-MPC was 13.9dB for female voice and 14.3dB for male voice respectively. And so, I expect to be able to this method for cellular phone and smart phone using excitation source of low bit rate.
