SpeechSplit2.0: Unsupervised Speech Disentanglement for Voice Conversion without Tuning Autoencoder Bottlenecks
SPEECHSPLIT can perform aspect-specific voice conversion by disentangling speech into content, rhythm, pitch, and timbre using multiple autoencoders in an unsupervised manner. However, SPEECHSPLIT requires careful tuning of the autoencoder bottlenecks, which can be time-consuming and less robust. This paper proposes SPEECHSPLIT2.0, which constrains the information flow of the speech component to be disentangled on the autoencoder input using efficient signal processing methods instead of bottleneck tuning. Evaluation results show that SPEECHSPLIT2.0 achieves comparable performance to SPEECHSPLIT in speech disentanglement and superior robustness to the bottleneck size variations.
