Object-based audio coding can provide new music applications with interactivity. To efficiently compress a lot of target audio objects, a subband-based parametric coding scheme has been adopted for MPEG spatial audio object coding. In this letter, the time-frequency (T/F) subband analysis structure is investigated. A reconfigured T/F structure is also proposed to enhance the generating performance of sound scenes such as 'karaoke' and 'solo' play in interactive music scenarios. From the experimental results, it was confirmed that the proposed scheme remarkably improves the SNR and sound quality.
