Signal Enhancement for the SPID Corpus

In order to cancel the noise introduced by the ambiance simulation, an adaptive filter based noise cancellation algorithm was applied to the recordings of the SPID corpus. Furthermore, a frequency-domain noise and cross-talk suppression was applied. The two time and time-frequency pots below show examples. The enhanced as well as the original signals are available for the entire corpus parts where the ambiance simualtion was used.

Our SONAR Simulator Supports Underwater Speech Communication Now

Due to the work of Owe Wisch and Alexej Namenas (and of the rest of the SONAR team, of course) our SONAR simulator supports now a real-time mode for testing underwater speech communication. A multitude of "subscribers" can connect to our virtual ocean and send and receive signals. The simulator consists of large (time-variant) convolution engine as well as a realistic noise simulation that ...
