TIME-VARIANT HARMONIC SIGNAL MODELING BY USING POLYNOMIAL APPROXIMATION AND FULLY AUTOMATED SPECTRAL ANALYSIS

By Miroslav Zivanovic and Johan Schoukens

Abstract

We present a novel approach to modelling time-variant harmonic content in audio signals. We show that both amplitude and fundamental frequency time variations can be compactly captured in a single time polynomial which modulates the fundamental harmonic component. A correct estimation of the fundamental frequency is assured through the fully automated spectral analysis method (ASA).The best-fit is easily obtained by linear least-squares, given the fact that the set of equations is linear-in-parameters. In contrast to the existing methods, the proposed approach is designed to properly describe harmonic structures in audio signals under conditions of both AM and FM modulations and low signal-to noise ratios. 1
