Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficients (MFCC) Calculation
MFCC is an algorithm widely used in audio and speech processing to represent the
short-term power spectrum of a sound signal in a more compact and
discriminative way. It is particularly popular in speech and audio processing
tasks such as speech recognition and speaker identification.
How Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficients are Calculated:
1. Preprocessing:
- Load an audio signal and normalize it to ensure that the values fall
within a specific range (e.g., between -1 and 1).
- Frame the audio signal into overlapping, fixed-length segments, typically
using a technique like windowing to reduce spectral leakage.
2. Fourier Transform:
- Apply a Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) to each audio frame to convert it
from the time domain to the frequency domain. This results in a
representation of the audio frame as a sequence of frequency components.
3. Power Spectrum:
- Calculate the power spectrum by taking the squared magnitude of each
frequency component obtained from the FFT. This step measures the energy
distribution across different frequency bands.
4. Mel Filterbank:
- Apply a set of triangular filterbanks spaced in the Mel frequency scale
to the power spectrum. These filters mimic the human auditory system's
frequency response. Each filterbank sums the power spectrum values within
its band.
5. Logarithmic Compression:
- Take the logarithm (typically base 10) of the filterbank values to
compress the dynamic range. This step mimics the logarithmic response of
the human ear to sound intensity.
6. Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT):
- Apply the Discrete Cosine Transform to the log filterbank energies to
obtain the MFCC coefficients. This transformation helps decorrelate the
filterbank energies and captures the most important features of the audio
signal.
7. Feature Extraction:
- Select a subset of the DCT coefficients to form the feature vector.
Often, the first few coefficients (e.g., 12-13) are used for most
applications.
