The Advanced Speech and Audio Processing (ASAP) Laboratory at New Mexico State University conducts research in the following areas: speaker recognition, speech enhancement, and speech coding. The speech lab is located in Goddard Annex Room 132 and contains state-of-the-art recording equipment, test and measurement equipment, digital audio workstations, and embedded DSP hardware and software development tools.
Blind Source (Speech) Separation Corpus
The Blind Source Separation (BSS) corpus is a collection of digital recordings of mixtures of speech signals and background noise in various acoustic environments. These real-world recordings can be used to evaluate various BSS and other speech enhancement algorithms using a standard test set. In addition, impulse responses for various acoustic environments are available for use in controlled simulation of different “mixing environments.”
The recordings were made under a grant from the Air Force Research Laboratories and are freely available for download.
