Abstract

In this paper we explain how we are improving the source component of a source-filter synthesis system. Our strategy for this improvement involves the replacement of the pulse generator by a phase vocoder module whose coefficients are derived from the analysis of speech signals. Firstly, we introduce the context of our research and then indicate the problem; finally, we present our solution followed by our conclusion and suggestion for further work.

Keywords: speech, speech synthesis, sound synthesis
