Neural SI-SNR Estimator

The Neural SI-SNR Estimator predicts the scale-invariant signal-to-noise ratio (SI-SNR) from the separated signals and the original mixture. The performance estimation is blind (i.e., no targets signals are needed). This model allows a performance estimation on real mixtures, where the targets are not available.

This repository provides the SI-SNR estimator model introduced for the REAL-M dataset.

The REAL-M dataset can downloaded from this link. The paper for the REAL-M dataset can be found on this arxiv link.

Install SpeechBrain

First of all, currently you need to install SpeechBrain from the source:

  1. Clone SpeechBrain:
git clone https://github.com/speechbrain/speechbrain/
  1. Install it:
cd speechbrain

pip install -r requirements.txt

pip install -e .

Please notice that we encourage you to read our tutorials and learn more about SpeechBrain.

Minimal example for SI-SNR estimation

from speechbrain.pretrained import SepformerSeparation as separator
from speechbrain.pretrained.interfaces import fetch
from speechbrain.pretrained.interfaces import SNREstimator as snrest

import torchaudio

# 1- Download a test mixture
fetch("test_mixture.wav", source="speechbrain/sepformer-wsj02mix", savedir=".", save_filename="test_mixture.wav")

# 2- Separate the mixture with a pretrained model (sepformer-whamr in this case)
model = separator.from_hparams(source="speechbrain/sepformer-whamr", savedir='pretrained_models/sepformer-whamr')
est_sources = model.separate_file(path='test_mixture.wav')

# 3- Estimate the performance
snr_est_model = snrest.from_hparams(source="speechbrain/REAL-M-sisnr-estimator",savedir='pretrained_models/REAL-M-sisnr-estimator')
mix, fs = torchaudio.load('test_mixture.wav')
snrhat = snr_est_model.estimate_batch(mix, est_sources)
print(snrhat) # Estimates are in dB / 10 (in the range 0-1, e.g., 0 --> 0dB, 1 --> 10dB)

Inference on GPU

To perform inference on the GPU, add run_opts={"device":"cuda"} when calling the from_hparams method.

Training

The model was trained with SpeechBrain (fc2eabb7).

To train it from scratch follows these steps:

  1. Clone SpeechBrain:

git clone https://github.com/speechbrain/speechbrain/
  1. Install it:

cd speechbrain

pip install -r requirements.txt

pip install -e .
  1. Run Training:
cd recipes/REAL-M/sisnr-estimation

python train.py hparams/pool_sisnrestimator.yaml --data_folder /yourLibri2Mixpath --base_folder_dm /yourLibriSpeechpath --rir_path /yourpathforwhamrRIRs --dynamic_mixing True --use_whamr_train True --whamr_data_folder /yourpath/whamr --base_folder_dm_whamr /yourpath/wsj0-processed/si_tr_s

You can find our training results (models, logs, etc) here.

Limitations

The SpeechBrain team does not provide any warranty on the performance achieved by this model when used on other datasets.
