On the Use of Wavelets and Cepstrum Excitation for Pitch Determination in Real-Time

Abstract : In the current paper, we propose a new pitch tracking technique based on a wavelet transform in the temporal domain. Our algorithm is designed to determine the pitch frequency of the speech signal using a simple voicing decision algorithm. The pitch period is extracted from the cepstrum excitation signal processed by a wavelet transform; then the pitch contour is refined by thresholding and correction algorithms without any post-processing. The results obtained show that the proposed algorithm provides very good pitch contours compared to those furnished by the Bagshaw database.
