This collection contains two models:
FastPitch (around 50M parameters) trained on OpenSLR neutral German dataset with over 23 hours of German speech and 1 speaker.
HiFi-GAN trained on mel spectrograms produced by the FastPitch model in (1).
FastPitch is non-autoregressive model for mel-spectrogram generation based on FastSpeech, conditioned on fundamental frequency contours. For more details about model, please refer to the original paper. Original FastPitch model uses an external Tacotron 2 model trained on LJSpeech-1.1 to extract training alignments and estimate durations of input symbols. This implementation of FastPitch is based on Deep Learning Examples, which uses an alignment mechanism proposed in RAD-TTS and extended in TTS Aligner.
For more information on training a basic FastPitch model, please refer to FastPitch_MixerTTS_Training.ipynb tutorial.
HiFi-GAN is a generative adversarial network (GAN) model that generates audio from mel spectrograms. The generator uses transposed convolutions to upsample mel spectrograms to audio. For more details about the model, please refer to the original paper. NeMo re-implementation of HiFi-GAN can be found here.
FastPitch: This model is trained from scratch on one male speaker named Thorsten Müller from OpenSLR - German Neutral-TTS dataset sampled at 22050Hz. Link here.
HiFi-GAN: This model is derived after finetuning TTS Vocoder Hifigan v1.0.0rc1 (pretrained on English dataset) on predicted mel spectrograms from FastPitch above.
No performance information available at this time.
The model is available for use in the NeMo toolkit , and can be used as a pre-trained checkpoint for inference or for fine-tuning on another dataset.
NOTE: For best results you should use the vocoder (HiFiGAN) checkpoint in this model card along with the mel spectrogram generator (FastPitch) checkpoint.

This model accepts batches of text.
This model generates mel spectrograms.
Since this model was trained on publically available speech datasets, the performance of this model might degrade for speech which includes technical terms, or vernacular that the model has not been trained on. The model might also perform worse for accented speech. This checkpoint only works well with vocoders that were trained on 22050Hz data. Otherwise, the generated audio may be scratchy or choppy-sounding.
