This paper proposes a new speech modification algorithm based on a vocoder framework to synthesize high quality speech. Its innovation is in preserving the fine structure of the magnitude spectrum. A key point is the use of a “compensatory gaussian window” to extract moderate F0 harmonics structures in the magnitude spectrum. The other key point is, starting from the magnitude spectrum, generating the F0 harmonics structures that match the target's fundamental frequency. Preference tests show… CONTINUE READING
