  author={Akira Tamamori and Tomoki Hayashi and Kazuhiro Kobayashi and Kazuya Takeda and Tomoki Toda},
In this study, we propose a speaker-dependent WaveNet vocoder, a method of synthesizing speech waveforms with WaveNet, by utilizing acoustic features from existing vocoder as auxiliary features of WaveNet. It is expected that WaveNet can learn a sample-by-sample correspondence between speech waveform and acoustic features. The advantage of the proposed method is that it does not require (1) explicit modeling of excitation signals and (2) various assumptions, which are based on prior knowledge… CONTINUE READING
