Analysis and Synthesis of Audio Vibrato Using Harmonic Sinusoids

Document Thumbnail

This paper introduces the analysis and synthesis of vibrato in music audio. The analyzer separates frequency modulators from their carriers using a demodulation process. It then describes the frequency variations of a vibrato using a period-synchronized parameter set, and the accompanying amplitude variations using a source-filter model, both of which can be regarded slow-varying. The synthesizer, on the other hand, reconstructs a vibrato from a given set of parameters. Using this system we are able to retrieve specific characteristics of vibratos, or modify them to implement various audio effects.
