Audio signal processing: A review of audio signal classification features

Authors(1) :-Mittal C. Darji

Digital audio processing applications are getting popularity with the time. Audio data compression, summarization, speech recognition, speaker identification, speech and music separation, music genre classifications, singer identification, gender detection and many more are there. Feature selection is the curial part of these applications. Various audio signal features are reviewed here especially considering classification as the purpose.
