NaturalSpeech: End-to-End Text to Speech Synthesis with Human-Level Quality

3 code implementations9 May 2022 Xu Tan, Jiawei Chen, Haohe Liu, Jian Cong, Chen Zhang, Yanqing Liu, Xi Wang, Yichong Leng, YuanHao Yi, Lei He, Frank Soong, Tao Qin, Sheng Zhao, Tie-Yan Liu

In this paper, we answer these questions by first defining the human-level quality based on the statistical significance of subjective measure and introducing appropriate guidelines to judge it, and then developing a TTS system called NaturalSpeech that achieves human-level quality on a benchmark dataset.

VISinger: Variational Inference with Adversarial Learning for End-to-End Singing Voice Synthesis

no code implementations17 Oct 2021 Yongmao Zhang, Jian Cong, Heyang Xue, Lei Xie, Pengcheng Zhu, Mengxiao Bi

In this paper, we propose VISinger, a complete end-to-end high-quality singing voice synthesis (SVS) system that directly generates audio waveform from lyrics and musical score.

Glow-WaveGAN: Learning Speech Representations from GAN-based Variational Auto-Encoder For High Fidelity Flow-based Speech Synthesis

no code implementations21 Jun 2021 Jian Cong, Shan Yang, Lei Xie, Dan Su

Current two-stage TTS framework typically integrates an acoustic model with a vocoder -- the acoustic model predicts a low resolution intermediate representation such as Mel-spectrum while the vocoder generates waveform from the intermediate representation.

Controllable Context-aware Conversational Speech Synthesis

no code implementations21 Jun 2021 Jian Cong, Shan Yang, Na Hu, Guangzhi Li, Lei Xie, Dan Su

Specifically, we use explicit labels to represent two typical spontaneous behaviors filled-pause and prolongation in the acoustic model and develop a neural network based predictor to predict the occurrences of the two behaviors from text.
