Find voiced segments

Description

Internal soundgen function.

Usage

findVoicedSegments(
  pitchCands,
  shortestSyl,
  shortestPause,
  step,
  samplingRate,
  minVoicedCands,
  pitchMethods,
  manualV = NULL,
  manualTryToV = NULL,
  manualUnv = NULL
)

Arguments

pitchCands

matrix of possible pitch values per column. One column is one fft frame, one row is one pitch candidate

shortestSyl

the smallest length of a voiced segment (ms) that constitutes a voiced syllable (shorter segments will be replaced by NA, as if unvoiced)

shortestPause

the smallest gap between voiced syllables (ms): large value = interpolate and merge, small value = treat as separate syllables separated by an unvoiced gap

step

you can override overlap by specifying FFT step, ms (NB: because digital audio is sampled at discrete time intervals of 1/samplingRate, the actual step and thus the time stamps of STFT frames may be slightly different, eg 24.98866 instead of 25.0 ms)

samplingRate

sampling rate (Hz)

minVoicedCands

a frame is considered to be voiced if at least this many pitch candidates are not NA. Defaults to 2: since dom is usually defined, in practice this means that we also want at least one other pitch candidate (autocor, cep or BaNa)

pitchMethods

methods of pitch tracking in analyze()

manualV

index of frames that should definitely be voiced (manual candidates)

manualTryToV

index of frames that should be treated as voiced as long as they have any candidates at all (even <minVoicedCands)

manualUnv

index of frames forced to be unvoiced

Details

Internal helper function for postprocessing of pitch contours. Merges voiced segments at least shortestSyl ms long and separated by less than shortestPause ms. Called by analyze

Value

Returns a dataframe specifying where each voiced segment starts and ends (in fft frames, not ms!)
