We studied the ability of deep neural networks (DNNs) to restore missing audio content based on its context, a process usually referred to as audio inpainting. We focused on gaps in the range of tens of milliseconds. The proposed DNN structure was trained on audio signals containing music and musical instruments, separately, with 64-ms long gaps and represented by time-frequency (TF) coefficients. For music, our DNN significantly outperformed the reference method based on linear predictive coding (LPC), demonstrating a generally good usability of the proposed DNN structure for inpainting complex audio signals like music.
