Recently, the use of signal compression methods to improve the efficiency of wireless networks have increased. In particular, the MPC system was used in the pitch extraction method and the excitation source of voiced and unvoiced to reduce the bit rate. In general, the MPC system using an excitation source of voiced and unvoiced would result in a distortion of the synthesis speech waveform in the case of voiced and unvoiced consonants in a frame. This is caused by normalization of the synthesis speech waveform in the process of restoring the multi-pulses of the representation segment. This paper presents an ACFBD-MPC (Amplitude Compensation Frequency Band Division-Multi Pulse Coding) using amplitude compensation in a multi-pulses each pitch interval and specific frequency to reduce the distortion of the synthesis speech waveform. The experiments were performed with 16 sentences of male and female voices. The voice signal was A/D converted to 10kHz 12bit. In addition, the ACFBD-MPC system was realized and the SNR of the ACFBD-MPC estimated in the coding condition of 8kbps. As a result, the SNR of ACFBD-MPC was 13.6dB for the female voice and 14.2dB for the male voice. The ACFBD-MPC improved the male and female voice by 1 dB and 0.9 dB, respectively, compared to the traditional MPC. This method is expected to be used for cellular telephones and smartphones using the excitation source with a low bit rate.
