A set of rules is proposed for controlling a 2-mass
glottal model through activation levels of laryngeal
muscles. The rules convert muscle activities into
physical quantities such as fold adduction, mass,
thickness, depth, stiffness. A codebook is constructed
between muscular activations and a set of relevant
voice source parameters, and its applications to voice
source parameter matching are explored.
I. INTRODUCTION
Features of the voice source signal (i.e., the glottal
