Questions tagged [mfcc]

The mel-frequency cepstrum (MFC) is a representation of the short-term power spectrum of a sound, based on a linear cosine transform of a log power spectrum on a nonlinear mel scale of frequency. Mel-frequency cepstral coefficients (MFCCs) are coefficients that collectively make up an MFC. MFCCs are commonly used as features in speech recognition systems

Normalization for MFCC?

I'm planning on using MFCCs extracted from audio signals to make a speaker recognizer. I noticed that the first MFCC term tends to be very large, compared to the others. That's why I think that ...

MFCCs and MoG-HMMs for speech recognition

BACKGROUND MFCCs are coefficients which represent the most important parts of speech, and about 12 of them are used to model a one 512 points long frame (of speech). Along with them you would use ...

Are MFCCs the optimal method of representing music to a retrieval system?

A signal processing technique, the Mel frequency Cepstrum, is often used to extract information from a musical piece for use in a machine learning task. This method gives a short-term power spectrum, ...

Defining norm of a matrix of MFCC coefficients

Scenario Construction: I have a MFCC generator block which gets the speech samples from the user and generates a rectangular matrix say $A$ of the order $m \times n$, whose elements are the Cesptral ...

A best measure for speaker recognition

I have a set $E_{1}$, with a finite cardinality $n$ of rectangular matrices which contains the useful MFCC coefficients generated from $n$ speech signals. Similary I have a set $E_{2}$ of same ...
