Soft decision combining for dual channel noise reduction

Timo Gerkmann, Rainer Martin

We present a flexible dual channel noise reduction algorithm that combines the information of two microphone channels in the discrete Fourier transform domain. This algorithm can cope with substantially different signal-to-noise ratios at different time-frequency bins in both channels. The output is obtained by combining the outputs of two single channel filters and a dual channel filter weighted by the probability of speech presence. The algorithm has a low latency and does not require any additional information such as the microphone positions.
