Pitch smoothing as in Praat

Description

Smoothes an intonation (pitch) contour with a low-pass filter, as in Praat (http://www.fon.hum.uva.nl/praat/). Algorithm: interpolates missing values (unvoiced frames), performs FFT to obtain the spectrum, multiplies by a Gaussian filter, performs an inverse FFT, and fills the missing values back in. The bandwidth parameter is about half the cutoff frequency (ie some frequencies will still be present up to ~2 * bandwidth)

Usage

pitchSmoothPraat(pitch, bandwidth, samplingRate, plot = FALSE)

Arguments

pitch

numeric vector of pitch values (NA = unvoiced)

bandwidth

the bandwidth of low-pass filter, Hz (high = less smoothing, close to zero = more smoothing)

samplingRate

the number of pitch values per second

plot

if TRUE, plots the original and smoothed pitch contours
