Abstract
In this paper we present a novel noise power spectral density tracking algorithm and its use in single-channel speech enhancement. It has the unique feature that it is able to track the noise statistics even if speech is dominant in a given time-frequency bin. As a consequence it can follow non-stationary noise superposed by speech, even in the critical case of rising noise power. The algorithm requires an initial estimate of the power spectrum of speech and is thus meant to be used as a postprocessor to a first speech enhancement stage. An experimental comparison with a state-of-the-art noise tracking algorithm demonstrates lower estimation errors under low SNR conditions and smaller fluctuations of the estimated values, resulting in improved speech quality as measured by PESQ scores.
