Alejandro Mottini, Jaime Lorenzo-Trueba, Sri Vishnu Kumar Karlapati, Thomas Drugman
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Experimental results show that Voicy outperforms other tested VC techniques in terms of naturalness and target speaker similarity in noisy reverberant environments.  ...  However, many acoustic environments are noisy and reverberant, severely restricting the applicability of popular VC methods to such scenarios.  ...  This is a shortcoming, since most real acoustic environments are noisy and reverberant. Second, not all methods can perform nonparallel zero-shot conversion [8, 9] .  ...
