NAME

mlib_SignalMelCepstral_F32 - perform cepstral analysis in mel frequency scale  

SYNOPSIS

cc [ flag... ] file... -lmlib [ library... ]
#include <mlib.h>

mlib_status mlib_SignalMelCepstral_F32(mlib_f32 *cepst,
    const mlib_f32 *signal, void *state);

 

DESCRIPTION

The mlib_SignalMelCepstral_F32() function performs cepstral analysis in mel frequency scale.

The first two steps of mel scale cepstral analysis is the same as in general cepstral anaysis. After the logarithm of the spectrum magnitude is obtained, it is converted into mel frequency scale before the inverse Fourier transform.

           +-----------+        +-----------+
          |  Linear   |        |  Inverse  |
... ------>|    to     |------->|  Fourier  |----->
    X'(k) | Mel Scale | X''(m) | Transform | c(n)
          +-----------+        +-----------+

where X'(k) is defined in linear frequency scale and X''(m) is defined in mel frequency scale.

The mel frequency scale is defined as following.

freq_mel = melmul * LOG10(1 + freq_linear / meldiv)

where freq_mel is the frequency in mel scale, freq_linear is the frequency in linear scale, melmul is the multiplying factor, muldiv is the dividing factor.

Optionally, a bank of band pass filters in linear frequency scale can be used below the bank of band pass filters in mel frequency scale, as shown below in linear frequency scale.

0   f1  f2  f3    fp  fp+1 fp+2  fp+3  fp+q
|---|---|---| ... |---|----|-----| ... | ... -> freq

where fp = melbgn, fp+q = melend, p = nlinear, q = nmel; the filters number 1 to p are defined in linear frequency scale which have equal bandwidth in linear frequency scale; the filters number p+1 to p+q are defined in mel frequency scale which have equal bandwidth in mel frequency scale and increasing bandwidth in linear frequency scale.
