So here's the idea: you can generate a spectrogram from an audio file using shorttime Fourier transform (stft). Then some people have generated something called a "binary mask" to generate different audio (ie. with background noise removed etc.) from the inverse stft.
Here's what I understand:
stft is a simple equation that is applied to the audio file, which generates the information that can easily be displayed a spectrogram. By taking the inverse of the stft matrix, and multiplying it by a matrix of the same size (the binary matrix) you can create a new matrix with information to generate an audio file with the masked sound.
Once I do the matrix multiplication, how is the new audio file created?
It's not much but here's what I've got in terms of code:
from librosa import load
from librosa.core import stft, istft
y, sample_rate = load('1.wav')
spectrum = stft(y)
back_y = istft(spectrum)
Thank you, and here are some slides that got me this far. I'd appreciate it if you could give me an example/demo in python
