This paper presents a procedure adaptation for the calculation of TD-PSOLA algorithm when the processing of pitch-shifting and time-stretching coefficients needs to be achieved in real-time at every new synthesis pitch mark. In the scope of standard TD-PSOLA algorithm, modification coefficients are defined from the analysis time axis whereas for real-time applications, pitch and duration control parameters need to be sampled at synthesis time. This paper will establish the theoretical correspondence between both approaches. Another issue related to real-time context concerns the trade-off between the latency required for processing and the type of analysis window used.
