Abstract
This paper focuses on the problem of pitch tracking in noisy
conditions. A method using harmonic information in the resid-
ual signal is presented. The proposed criterion is used both for
pitch estimation, as well as for determining the voicing seg-
ments of speech. In the experiments, the method is compared
to six state-of-the-art pitch trackers on the Keele and CSTR
databases. The proposed technique is shown to be particularly
robust to additive noise, leading to a significant improvement in
adverse conditions.
