Speech transformations based on a sinusoidal representation

  title={Speech transformations based on a sinusoidal representation},
  author={Thomas F. Quatieri and Robert J. McAulay},
  journal={IEEE Trans. Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing},
In this report, a new speech analysis/synthesis technique is presented which provides the basis for a general class of speech transformations including time-scale modification, frequency scaling, and pitch modification. These modifications can be performed with a time-varying change, permitting continuous adjustment of a speaker's fundamental frequency and rate of articulation. The method is based on a sinusoidal representation of the speech production mechanism that has been shown to produce… CONTINUE READING
