The traditional audio de-noising technique using Daubechies wavelet is improved by using a preprocessor using statistical grazing estimation. ‘Noisy’ signals were synthetically generated by introducing ‘noise’ to a ‘clean’ signal. The signal was sampled at 8 kHz and digitized at 16 bits per second. The noise from the audio signal was removed in the first step using statistical grazing estimation with specified threshold level. In the second step Daubechies-D4 wavelet transform was used to remove the noise further. The results were compared with results obtained with grazing estimation only, Daubechies-D4 wavelet transformation and Haar wavelet transformations separately. The results show that the composite denoising technique results in consistently better signal-to-noise ratio than any other technique.
