In this letter we describe nonuniform orthogonal modified discrete cosine transform (MDCT) filterbanks and time-domain aliasing reduction (TDAR). By adding a postprocessing step to the MDCT, our method allows for arbitrary nonuniform frequency resolutions using subband merging with smooth windowing and overlap in frequency. This overlap allows for an improved temporal compactness of the impulse response, which is especially useful for audio coders. The postprocessing step comprises another lapped MDCT transform along the frequency axis and TDAR along each subband signal.
