  • Blaauw, Merlijn; Bonada, Jordi, 1973- (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2017)
    We present a new model for singing synthesis based on a modified version of the WaveNet architecture. Instead of modeling raw waveform, we model features produced by a parametric vocoder that separates the influence of ...
  • Blaauw, Merlijn; Bonada, Jordi, 1973- (MDPI, 2017)
    We recently presented a new model for singing synthesis based on a modified version of the WaveNet architecture. Instead of modeling raw waveform, we model features produced by a parametric vocoder that separates the ...
  • Bonada, Jordi, 1973-; Lachlan, Robert; Blaauw, Merlijn (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2016)
    This paper focuses on the synthesis of bird songs using Hidden Markov Models (HMM). This technique has been widely used for speech modeling and synthesis. However, features and contextual factors typically used for human ...
  • Bonada, Jordi, 1973-; Umbert Morist, Martí; Blaauw, Merlijn (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2016)
    Sample and statistically based singing synthesizers typically require a large amount of data for automatically generating expressive synthetic performances. In this paper we present a singing synthesizer that using two ...
  • Blaauw, Merlijn; Bonada, Jordi, 1973- (International Speech Communication Association (ISCA), 2016)
    Latent generative models can learn higher-level underlying factors from complex data in an unsupervised manner. Such models can be used in a wide range of speech processing applications, including synthesis, transformation ...
  • Maestre Gómez, Esteban; Blaauw, Merlijn; Bonada, Jordi, 1973-; Guaus, Enric; Pérez Carrillo, Alfonso Antonio, 1977- (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010)
    Excitation-continuous music instrument control patterns are often not explicitly represented in current sound synthesis techniques when applied to automatic performance. Both physical model-based and sample-based synthesis ...
