Bob's audio processing utilities

Project Description

Audio Processing for Bob

This package is part of the signal-processing and machine learning toolbox Bob. It contains basic audio processing utilities. Currently, the following cepstral-based features are available: using rectangular (RFCC), mel-scaled triangular (MFCC) [Davis1980], inverted mel-scaled triangular (IMFCC), and linear triangular (LFCC) filters [Furui1981], spectral flux-based features (SSFC) [Scheirer1997], subband centroid frequency (SCFC) [Le2011]. We are planning to update and add more features in the near future.

Please note that the implementation of MFCC and LFCC features has changed compared to an earlier version of the package, as we corrected pre-emphasis and DCT computations. Delta and delta-delta computations were slightly changed too.


Follow our installation instructions. Then, using the Python interpreter provided by the distribution, bootstrap and buildout this package:

$ python
$ ./bin/buildout
