Vocoder with HiFIGAN trained on LibriTTS

This repository provides all the necessary tools for using a HiFIGAN vocoder trained with LibriTTS (with multiple speakers). The sample rate used for the vocoder is 22050 Hz.

The pre-trained model takes in input a spectrogram and produces a waveform in output. Typically, a vocoder is used after a TTS model that converts an input text into a spectrogram.

Alternatives to this models are the following:

Install SpeechBrain

pip install speechbrain

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

Using the Vocoder

import torch
from speechbrain.pretrained import HIFIGAN
hifi_gan = HIFIGAN.from_hparams(source="speechbrain/tts-hifigan-libritts-22050Hz", savedir="tmpdir")
mel_specs = torch.rand(2, 80,298)

# Running Vocoder (spectrogram-to-waveform)
waveforms = hifi_gan.decode_batch(mel_specs)

Using the Vocoder with the TTS

import torchaudio
from speechbrain.pretrained import Tacotron2
from speechbrain.pretrained import HIFIGAN

# Intialize TTS (tacotron2) and Vocoder (HiFIGAN)
tacotron2 = Tacotron2.from_hparams(source="speechbrain/tts-tacotron2-ljspeech", savedir="tmpdir_tts")
hifi_gan = HIFIGAN.from_hparams(source="speechbrain/tts-hifigan-libritts-22050Hz", savedir="tmpdir_vocoder")

# Running the TTS
mel_output, mel_length, alignment = tacotron2.encode_text("Mary had a little lamb")

# Running Vocoder (spectrogram-to-waveform)
waveforms = hifi_gan.decode_batch(mel_output)

# Save the waverform
torchaudio.save('example_TTS.wav',waveforms.squeeze(1), 22050)

Inference on GPU

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


The model was trained with SpeechBrain. To train it from scratch follow 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/LibriTTS/vocoder/hifigan/
python train.py hparams/train.yaml --data_folder=/path/to/LibriTTS_data_destination --sample_rate=22050

To change the sample rate for model training go to the "recipes/LibriTTS/vocoder/hifigan/hparams/train.yaml" file and change the value for sample_rate as required. The training logs and checkpoints are available here.
