This letter presents the advantages of a cascaded algebraic codebook structure at relatively high bit-rates. The cascaded structure that consists of two stages provides flexible pulse combinations due to an additional gain term in the second stage. The perceptual quality of the cascaded structure can be further improved by using a gain re-estimation scheme. Experiments confirm that the cascaded structure has a big advantage in terms of quality and complexity as the bit-rate becomes higher.
