The Vocal Enhancer increases speech intelligibility,
extends and restores sparkling vocal frequencies
that might have been lost due to audio compression,
zooms into the voice's spectral contents details,
and brings voices and dialogs to the front of the audio scene.
The sample audio files below demonstrate the Vocal Enhancer's effect. The audio signal at the top
is the original (input) before processing through the Vocal Enhancer. The sample at the bottom is the processed
(output) enhanced signal. The images show the spectral contents of the audio signals. Click on the images for larger view.
EVALUATING THE VOCAL ENHANCER
To closely examine the Vocal Enhancer effect on your own recordings, please download the
Vocal Enhancer demonstrator.
This simple command-line Windows application reads an audio wav file, processes that
file through the Vocal Enhancer algorithm, and writes the result to another wav file. For instance if you have a recorded
speech signal named "InputSpeech.wav" and would like to process it through the vocal enhancer, you
may give the following command at the command line prompt
VocalEnhancer.exe InputSpeech.wav VocalEnhancerOutput.wav
Please note that only uncompressed PCM wav format is supported. If you have a recorded file in any other
audio formats, including ADPCM wav or any other encoded or compressed wav file you will need to convert it to
PCM first using any available audio file editor. Simply open the recording in the audio file editor of your choice
and select "File->Save As" and then select PCM wav format.
