Reference

class speechbrain.pretrained.interfaces.Pretrained(modules=None, hparams=None, run_opts=None, freeze_params=True)[source]

Bases: object

Takes a trained model and makes predictions on new data.

This is a base class which handles some common boilerplate. It intentionally has an interface similar to Brain - these base classes handle similar things.

Subclasses of Pretrained should implement the actual logic of how the pretrained system runs, and add methods with descriptive names (e.g. transcribe_file() for ASR).

Parameters
  • modules (dict of str:torch.nn.Module pairs) – The Torch modules that make up the learned system. These can be treated in special ways (put on the right device, frozen, etc.)

  • hparams (dict) – Each key:value pair should consist of a string key and a hyperparameter that is used within the overridden methods. These will be accessible via an hparams attribute, using “dot” notation: e.g., self.hparams.model(x).

  • run_opts (dict) –

    Options parsed from command line. See speechbrain.parse_arguments(). List that are supported here:

    • device

    • data_parallel_count

    • data_parallel_backend

    • distributed_launch

    • distributed_backend

    • jit_module_keys

  • freeze_params (bool) – To freeze (requires_grad=False) parameters or not. Normally in inference you want to freeze the params. Also calls .eval() on all modules.

load_audio(path, savedir='.')[source]

Load an audio file with this model”s input spec

When using a speech model, it is important to use the same type of data, as was used to train the model. This means for example using the same sampling rate and number of channels. It is, however, possible to convert a file from a higher sampling rate to a lower one (downsampling). Similarly, it is simple to downmix a stereo file to mono. The path can be a local path, a web url, or a link to a huggingface repo.

classmethod from_hparams(source, hparams_file='hyperparams.yaml', overrides={}, savedir=None, use_auth_token=False, **kwargs)[source]

Fetch and load based from outside source based on HyperPyYAML file

The source can be a location on the filesystem or online/huggingface

The hyperparams file should contain a “modules” key, which is a dictionary of torch modules used for computation.

The hyperparams file should contain a “pretrainer” key, which is a speechbrain.utils.parameter_transfer.Pretrainer

Parameters
  • source (str) – The location to use for finding the model. See speechbrain.pretrained.fetching.fetch for details.

  • hparams_file (str) – The name of the hyperparameters file to use for constructing the modules necessary for inference. Must contain two keys: “modules” and “pretrainer”, as described.

  • overrides (dict) – Any changes to make to the hparams file when it is loaded.

  • savedir (str or Path) – Where to put the pretraining material. If not given, will use ./pretrained_models/<class-name>-hash(source).

  • use_auth_token (bool (default: False)) – If true Hugginface’s auth_token will be used to load private models from the HuggingFace Hub, default is False because majority of models are public.

Detects speech segments within the input file. The input signal can be both a short or a long recording. The function computes the posterior probabilities on large chunks (e.g, 30 sec), that are read sequentially (to avoid storing big signals in memory). Each large chunk is, in turn, split into smaller chunks (e.g, 10 seconds) that are processed in parallel. The pipeline for detecting the speech segments is the following:

1- Compute posteriors probabilities at the frame level. 2- Apply a threshold on the posterior probability. 3- Derive candidate speech segments on top of that. 4- Apply energy VAD within each candidate segment (optional). 5- Merge segments that are too close. 6- Remove segments that are too short. 7- Double check speech segments (optional).

Parameters
  • audio_file (str) – Path to audio file.

  • large_chunk_size (float) – Size (in seconds) of the large chunks that are read sequentially from the input audio file.

  • small_chunk_size (float) – Size (in seconds) of the small chunks extracted from the large ones. The audio signal is processed in parallel within the small chunks. Note that large_chunk_size/small_chunk_size must be an integer.

  • apply_energy_VAD (bool) – If True, a energy-based VAD is used on the detected speech segments. The neural network VAD often creates longer segments and tends to merge close segments together. The energy VAD post-processes can be useful for having a fine-grained voice activity detection. The energy thresholds is managed by activation_th and deactivation_th (see below).

  • double_check (bool) – If True, double checkis (using the neural VAD) that the candidate speech segments actually contain speech. A threshold on the mean posterior probabilities provided by the neural network is applied based on the speech_th parameter (see below).

  • activation_th (float) – Threshold of the neural posteriors above which starting a speech segment.

  • deactivation_th (float) – Threshold of the neural posteriors below which ending a speech segment.

  • en_activation_th (float) – A new speech segment is started it the energy is above activation_th. This is active only if apply_energy_VAD is True.

  • en_deactivation_th (float) – The segment is considered ended when the energy is <= deactivation_th. This is active only if apply_energy_VAD is True.

  • speech_th (float) – Threshold on the mean posterior probability within the candidate speech segment. Below that threshold, the segment is re-assigned to a non-speech region. This is active only if double_check is True.

  • close_th (float) – If the distance between boundaries is smaller than close_th, the segments will be merged.

  • len_th (float) – If the length of the segment is smaller than close_th, the segments will be merged.

Returns

boundaries – Tensor containing the start second of speech segments in even positions and their corresponding end in odd positions (e.g, [1.0, 1.5, 5,.0 6.0] means that we have two speech segment;

one from 1.0 to 1.5 seconds and another from 5.0 to 6.0 seconds).

Return type

torch.tensor

class speechbrain.pretrained.interfaces.SepformerSeparation(modules=None, hparams=None, run_opts=None, freeze_params=True)[source]

Bases: speechbrain.pretrained.interfaces.Pretrained

A “ready-to-use” speech separation model.

Uses Sepformer architecture.

Example

>>> tmpdir = getfixture("tmpdir")
>>> model = SepformerSeparation.from_hparams(
...     source="speechbrain/sepformer-wsj02mix",
...     savedir=tmpdir)
>>> mix = torch.randn(1, 400)
>>> est_sources = model.separate_batch(mix)
>>> print(est_sources.shape)
torch.Size([1, 400, 2])
MODULES_NEEDED = ['encoder', 'masknet', 'decoder']
separate_batch(mix)[source]

Run source separation on batch of audio.

Parameters

mix (torch.tensor) – The mixture of sources.

Returns

Separated sources

Return type

tensor

separate_file(path, savedir='.')[source]

Separate sources from file.

Parameters
  • path (str) – Path to file which has a mixture of sources. It can be a local path, a web url, or a huggingface repo.

  • savedir (path) – Path where to store the wav signals (when downloaded from the web).

Returns

Separated sources

Return type

tensor

class speechbrain.pretrained.interfaces.SpectralMaskEnhancement(modules=None, hparams=None, run_opts=None, freeze_params=True)[source]

Bases: speechbrain.pretrained.interfaces.Pretrained

A ready-to-use model for speech enhancement.

Parameters

Pretrained. (See) –

Example

>>> import torchaudio
>>> from speechbrain.pretrained import SpectralMaskEnhancement
>>> # Model is downloaded from the speechbrain HuggingFace repo
>>> tmpdir = getfixture("tmpdir")
>>> enhancer = SpectralMaskEnhancement.from_hparams(
...     source="speechbrain/mtl-mimic-voicebank",
...     savedir=tmpdir,
... )
>>> noisy, fs = torchaudio.load("samples/audio_samples/example_noisy.wav")
>>> # Channel dimension is interpreted as batch dimension here
>>> enhanced = enhancer.enhance_batch(noisy)
HPARAMS_NEEDED = ['compute_stft', 'spectral_magnitude', 'resynth']
MODULES_NEEDED = ['enhance_model']
compute_features(wavs)[source]

Compute the log spectral magnitude features for masking.

Parameters

wavs (torch.tensor) – A batch of waveforms to convert to log spectral mags.

enhance_batch(noisy, lengths=None)[source]

Enhance a batch of noisy waveforms.

Parameters
  • noisy (torch.tensor) – A batch of waveforms to perform enhancement on.

  • lengths (torch.tensor) – The lengths of the waveforms if the enhancement model handles them.

Returns

A batch of enhanced waveforms of the same shape as input.

Return type

torch.tensor

enhance_file(filename, output_filename=None)[source]

Enhance a wav file.

Parameters
  • filename (str) – Location on disk to load file for enhancement.

  • output_filename (str) – If provided, writes enhanced data to this file.
