Multi-Scale Spectrogram Modelling for Neural Text-to-Speech

no code implementations29 Jun 2021 Ammar Abbas, Bajibabu Bollepalli, Alexis Moinet, Arnaud Joly, Penny Karanasou, Peter Makarov, Simon Slangens, Sri Karlapati, Thomas Drugman

We propose a novel Multi-Scale Spectrogram (MSS) modelling approach to synthesise speech with an improved coarse and fine-grained prosody.

Parallel WaveNet conditioned on VAE latent vectors

no code implementations17 Dec 2020 Jonas Rohnke, Tom Merritt, Jaime Lorenzo-Trueba, Adam Gabrys, Vatsal Aggarwal, Alexis Moinet, Roberto Barra-Chicote

In this paper we investigate the use of a sentence-level conditioning vector to improve the signal quality of a Parallel WaveNet neural vocoder.

Prosodic Representation Learning and Contextual Sampling for Neural Text-to-Speech

no code implementations4 Nov 2020 Sri Karlapati, Ammar Abbas, Zack Hodari, Alexis Moinet, Arnaud Joly, Penny Karanasou, Thomas Drugman

In Stage II, we propose a novel method to sample from this learnt prosodic distribution using the contextual information available in text.

Using a Pitch-Synchronous Residual Codebook for Hybrid HMM/Frame Selection Speech Synthesis

no code implementations30 Dec 2019 Thomas Drugman, Alexis Moinet, Thierry Dutoit, Geoffrey Wilfart

The source signal is obtained by concatenating excitation frames picked up from the codebook, based on a selection criterion and taking target residual coefficients as input.

Singing Synthesis: with a little help from my attention

no code implementations12 Dec 2019 Orazio Angelini, Alexis Moinet, Kayoko Yanagisawa, Thomas Drugman

We present UTACO, a singing synthesis model based on an attention-based sequence-to-sequence mechanism and a vocoder based on dilated causal convolutions.

Voice Conversion for Whispered Speech Synthesis

no code implementations11 Dec 2019 Marius Cotescu, Thomas Drugman, Goeric Huybrechts, Jaime Lorenzo-Trueba, Alexis Moinet

We present an approach to synthesize whisper by applying a handcrafted signal processing recipe and Voice Conversion (VC) techniques to convert normally phonated speech to whispered speech.

Towards achieving robust universal neural vocoding

1 code implementation4 Jul 2019 Jaime Lorenzo-Trueba, Thomas Drugman, Javier Latorre, Thomas Merritt, Bartosz Putrycz, Roberto Barra-Chicote, Alexis Moinet, Vatsal Aggarwal

This vocoder is shown to be capable of generating speech of consistently good quality (98% relative mean MUSHRA when compared to natural speech) regardless of whether the input spectrogram comes from a speaker or style seen during training or from an out-of-domain scenario when the recording conditions are studio-quality.

Traditional Machine Learning for Pitch Detection

no code implementations4 Mar 2019 Thomas Drugman, Goeric Huybrechts, Viacheslav Klimkov, Alexis Moinet

In this paper, we consider voicing detection as a classification problem and F0 contour estimation as a regression problem.
