Abstract

An unsupervised single channel audio separation method from pattern recognition viewpoint is presented. The proposed method does not require training knowledge and the separation system is based on non-uniform time-frequency (TF) analysis and feature extraction. Unlike conventional research that concentrates on the use of spectrogram or its variants, the proposed separation algorithm uses an alternative TF representation based on the gammatone filterbank. In particular, the monaural mixed audio signal is shown to be considerably more separable in this non-uniform TF domain. The analysis of signal separability to verify this finding is provided. In addition, a variational Bayesian approach is derived to learn the sparsity parameters for optimizing the matrix factorization. Experimental tests have been conducted, which show that the extraction of the spectral dictionary and temporal codes is more efficient using sparsity learning and subsequently leads to better separation performance.
