Abstract

An alternative for the Liljencrants–Fant (LF) glottal-pulse model is presented. This alternative is derived from the Rosenberg model. Therefore, it is called the Rosenberg++ model. In the derivation a general framework is used for glottal-pulse models. The Rosenberg++ model is described by the same set of T or R parameters as the LF model but it has the advantage over the LF model that it is computationally more efficient. It is compared with the LF model in a psychoacoustic experiment, from which it is concluded that in a practical situation it is capable of producing synthetic speech which is perceptually equivalent to speech generated with the LF model.
