Title (EN) METHOD OF SIGNAL SHREDDING
(FR) PROCEDE DE TRAITEMENT DE SIGNAL
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Methods for identifying the harmonic content of a single signal contained within a more complex signal and subsequently processing or separating signals contained within a complex mixture of signals into their constituent parts. Also, a single signal may be selectively separated or removed from the more complex audio signal. Furthermore, it may be desired to affect or modify the volume, clarity, timbre, color, feel, understandability (e.g. vowel and consonant sounds), the punch or clarity of the attack phase of a note or of a sequence (sometimes rhythmic) of individual notes or sounds in a complex combination of sounds of differing frequencies, volumes, and time sequence patterns. Multiple methods are described herein to allow the identification of signals within an audio signal that contains multiple or mixed signals, such as an audio signal containing a mixture of several musical instruments and/or voices.
(FR)L'invention concerne des procédés consistant à identifier le contenu harmonique d'un signal individuel contenu dans un signal plus complexe, et à traiter ou séparer ensuite des signaux contenus dans un mélange complexe de signaux en leurs composantes. Un signal individuel peut également être séparé sélectivement ou extrait du signal audio plus complexe. Par ailleurs, il peut être souhaitable de modifier le volume, la clarté, le timbre, la couleur, la sensation, la compréhensibilité (par ex. sons de voyelles et de consonnes), la puissance ou la clarté d'une phase d'attaque d'une note ou d'une séquence (éventuellement rythmique) de notes ou de sons individuels dans une combinaison complexe de sons de fréquences, de volumes et de modèles de séquences temporelles différents. L'invention concerne plusieurs procédés permettant l'identification de signaux dans un signal audio contenant des signaux multiples ou mixtes, par ex. un signal audio contenant un mélange de plusieurs instruments de musiques et/ou de voix.
