Voice conversion using k-histograms and frame selection

Alejandro José Uriz, Pablo Daniel Agüero, Antonio Bonafonte, Juan Carlos Tulli

The goal of voice conversion systems is to modify the voice of a source speaker to be perceived as if it had been uttered by another specific speaker. Many approaches found in the literature work based on statistical models and introduce an oversmoothing in the target features. Our proposal is a new model that combines several techniques used in unit selection for text-to-speech and a non-gaussian transformation mathematical model. Subjective results support the proposed approach.
