In this work, an effort has been made to identify vocal and non-vocal regions from a given song using signal processing techniques and machine learning algorithm. Initially spectral features like mel-frequency cepstral coefficients (MFCCs) are used to develop the baseline system. Statistical values of pitch, jitter and shimmer are considered to improve performance of the system. Artificial neural networks (ANNs) are used to capture the characteristics of vocal and non-vocal segments of the… CONTINUE READING
