### Formant bandwidths

I have some intuition about bandwidths from these videos (1 and 2) explaining how the frequency response corresponds to the Z-surface. The only thing I could find on the internet about calculating the ...

### How were the coefficients for polynomial linear predictive coding derived?

FLAC uses linear predictive coding (LPC) as one of its central compression steps. While it allows for arbitrary LPC coefficients in the "FIR Linear prediction" subframe compression type, ...

### LPC Formant Estimation: Why resample?

The Burg algorithm implemented in PRAAT for formant estimation also works via LPC. First the sound is resampled to a sampling frequency of twice the value of maximum formant. Then a pre-emphasis is ...

### Conceptually confused by LPC for speech: Do we synthesize by the inverse filter (FIR)?

I've been following the process of using LPC to analyse the speech and then synthesize the speech by swapping out coefficients over time. I'm purely concerned with pitched vowels at this point. ...

### Linear prediction (LPC) of Sine wave samples around maximas

I think I missed class when this was explained ... Anyway as part of a bigger project I have to implement a LPC to predict 2-3 future values of a sinusoidal process. I wrote a small Matlab m-file to ...

### How to build a simple model for voice-controlled system?

I want to build a speaker independent voice-controlled system. If I ask 10 people to say one unique word(for example"hello"), and record their voice and do LPC(linear predicting coding) upon them, I ...

### What is the need for prediction filter in PCM and DPCM?

The DPCM works by the difference between actual samples and predicted samples. If we already have the actual samples, we can quantize it and encode it later. But why we use prediction filter? And ...

### Matching LPC frequency response to raw sample data frequency response

Background: The intention is feature/formant extraction from speech input. I have used an FFT on raw samples in the past and have done simple peak picking from a weighted average of frequencies over ...

### how to detect number of syllables in a batch of audio recordings?

I have a corpus of short speech samples from Kiswahili speakers, and I want to detect the number of syllables in each audio recording. How should I approach this task? Background: I asked a ...

### hamming window for LPC

I am working on a library for generating LPC for speech synthesis. I am currently using a hamming window for the spectral analysis which goes in 200ms blocks over the signal, and does the a-to-k ...

### LPC produces unexpected residual

I have written a vocal pitch shifting algorithm which uses LPC to separate the signal into its spectral envelope (predicted by the coefficients) and the pitch information (the residual error). My ...

### Preprocessing signal before LPC

I have a signal that contains the speaking of three vowels. The signal is contaminated with dc offset and an interference at 60 Hz. I want to perform LPC for the synthesis of the spoken vowels. Do I ...

### Gentle request for explanation on LPC and LPCC coefficients :)

If I understand what LPC does, I think. It predicts the next sample by taking into account previous $p$ samples. I don't understand why it is useful in DPS and speech recognition. I also came across ...

### Derivation of Yule-Walker Equation for LPC

I have derived the Yule-Walker equation as shown below. \begin{align} \hat s(n) &= -\sum_{k=1} ^ p a_k s(n-k)\\ e(n) &= s(n) - \hat s(n) = s(n) + \sum_{k=1}^pa_k s(n-k) \end{align} In order ...

### Format location from LPC magnitude

I am confusing when I find the lpc roots magnitude, f1=0.9313, f2=0.9308, f3=0.91 and f4=0.95 but when I look at LPC envelope the f1 is higher than f4 in term of magnitude in dB. Could anybody explain ...
