A Real-Time Wideband Neural Vocoder at 1.6 kb/s Using LPCNet

This is an update on the LPCNet project, an efficient neural speech synthesizer from Mozilla’s Emerging Technologies group. LPCNet combines signal processing and deep learning to improve the efficiency of neural speech synthesis. Our recent work turns LPCNet into a very low-bitrate neural speech codec that’s actually usable on current hardware and even on phones.
