Non-stationary Noise

This is the accompanying noise dataset created for the following papers:

  1. Zhiyao Duan, Gautham J. Mysore, and Paris Smaragdis, Online PLCA for Real-time semi-supervised source separation, in Proc. International Conference on Latent Variable Analysis and Signal Separation (LVA/ICA), LNCS 7191, pp. 34-41, 2012. <pdf> <slides>
  2. Zhiyao Duan, Gautham J. Mysore, and Paris Smaragdis, Speech enhancement by online non-negative spectrogram decomposition in non-stationary noise environments, in Proc. Interspeech, 2012. <pdf> <slides> <sound files>

If you use this dataset in work that you publish, please kindly cite the LVA/ICA paper.


There are ten different non-stationay noises in this dataset. They are either recorded by us, downloaded from the web, or collected from other resources. All the files are sampled at 16kHz.
