A Strategy for Improved Phone-Level Lyrics-to-Audio Alignment for Speech-to-Singing Synthesis

David Ayllón, Fernando Villavicencio, Pierre Lanchantin
2019 Interspeech 2019  
We propose a complete pipeline for automatic phone-level lyrics-to-audio alignment based on an HMM-based forced-aligner and singing acoustics normalization.  ...  Unfortunately, the precision of existing techniques for phone-level lyrics-to-audio alignment has been found insufficient for this task.  ...  Pre-processing Audio One of the main aspects limiting the performance of acoustic models trained on speech for the lyrics-to-audio alignment can be seen in a significant variation of the spectral information  ...

Improving Real-time Score Following in Opera by Combining Music with Lyrics Tracking [article]

Charles Brazier, Gerhard Widmer
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Fully automatic opera tracking is challenging because of the acoustic complexity of the genre, combining musical and linguistic information (singing, speech) in complex ways.  ...  In addition, a lyrics tracker, that has recently been shown to reliably track the lyrics of opera songs, will correct the music tracker when tracking parts that have a text dominance over the music.  ...  More specifically, the acoustic model will predict, for each audio frame, a probability vector over a set of phonemes.  ...

Retrieval of Textual Song Lyrics from Sung Inputs

Anna M. Kruspe
2016 Interspeech 2016  
The results are highly encouraging and could be used further to perform automatic lyrics alignment and keyword spotting for large databases of songs.  ...  Since these lyrics do not have any temporal information, we then employ an approach based on Dynamic Time Warping to retrieve the most likely lyrics document for each recording.  ...  Lyrics alignment Since the textual lyrics were not aligned to the singing audio data, we first performed a forced alignment step. A monophone HMM acoustic model trained on Timit using HTK was used.  ...
