Single-Channel Sound Source Separation Using NMF with Sparseness Constraints

While challenging, sound source separation is a task that has many practical applications in audio signal processing. In this paper three sound files with two sources in each were separated using the non-negative matrix factorization (NMF) approach, with and without sparseness constraints. The results showed that adding sparseness constraints had no effect when separating drums and bass guitar but had better performances when separating piano and drums, and piano and bass guitar.
