Subharmonics-to-harmonics ratio

Description

Internal soundgen function

Usage

subhToHarm(
  frame,
  bin,
  freqs,
  pitch,
  pitchCands = NULL,
  samplingRate,
  method = c("cep", "pitchCands", "harm")[1],
  nSubh = 5,
  tol = 0.05,
  nHarm = 5,
  harmThres = 3,
  harmTol = 0.25
)

Arguments

frame

the abs spectrum of a frame, as returned by fft

bin

spectrogram bin width, Hz

freqs

frequency per bin of spectrogram

pitch

pitch per frame, Hz

pitchCands

a list of pitch candidates and certainties sent from analyze()

samplingRate

sampling rate (Hz)

method

'cep' = cepstrum, 'pitchCands' = existing pitch candidates below f0, 'harm' = look for harmonic peaks. Only 'cep' is really working at the moment.

nSubh

the maximum ratio of f0 / g0 to consider

tol

target frequency (eg f0 / 2) has to be within tol * target (eg tol = .05 gives a tolerance of 5%)

nHarm

for method 'harm' only

harmThres

minimum height of spectral peak, dB

harmTol

maximum tolerated deviation of peak frequency from multiples of f0, proportion of f0

Details

Looks for pitch candidates (among the ones already found if method = 'pitchCands', or using some other pitch-tracking-like techniques such as cepstrum) at integer ratios of f0. If such candidates are found, they are treated as subharmonics. Note that this depends critically on accurate pitch tracking.

Examples

s400 = soundgen(
  sylLen = 300, pitch = c(280, 370, 330),
  subDep = list(
    time = c(0, .5, .51, 1),
    value = c(0, 0, 10, 10)
  ), subRatio = 3,
  smoothing = list(interpol = 'approx'), formants = 'a',
  rolloff = -12, addSilence = 50, temperature = .001,
)
s = analyze(s400, samplingRate = 16000,
            windowLength =  50, step = 10,
            pitchMethods = c('dom', 'autocor', 'hps'), priorMean = NA,
            plot = TRUE, ylim = c(0, 3),
            extraContour = list('subDep', type = 'b', col = 'brown'))
s$detailed[, c('subRatio', 'subDep')]
