    Practical Gammatone-Like Filters for Auditory Processing

    This paper deals with continuous-time filter transfer functions that resemble tuning curves at particular set of places on the basilar membrane of the biological cochlea and that are suitable for practical VLS...

    Perceptual Continuity and Naturalness of Expressive Strength in Singing Voices Based on Speech Morphing

    This paper experimentally shows the importance of perceptual continuity of the expressive strength in vocal timbre for natural change in vocal expression. In order to synthesize various and continuous expressi...

    Wideband Speech Recovery Using Psychoacoustic Criteria

    Many modern speech bandwidth extension techniques predict the high-frequency band based on features extracted from the lower band. While this method works for certain types of speech, problems arise when the c...

    An FFT-Based Companding Front End for Noise-Robust Automatic Speech Recognition

    We describe an FFT-based companding algorithm for preprocessing speech before recognition. The algorithm mimics tone-to-tone suppression and masking in the auditory system to improve automatic speech recogniti...
