Pitch-Synchronous Analysis and Synthesis for Its Systems

David Talkin, James Rowley

AT&T Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill, NJ, USA

This paper describes a robust, accurate method for finding the glottal closure instants, and a method of pitch-synchronous linear prediction analysis that provides parameters capable of producing clear and natural-sounding synthetic speech when used in a pulse/noise-excited synthesizer. Synthesis techniques that lead to improved naturalness are also described.
