Model-based approaches to achieve Single Channel Source Separation (SCSS) have been reasonably successful at separating two sources. However, most of the currently used model-based approaches require pre-trained speaker specific models in order to perform the separation. Often, insufficient or no prior training data may be available to develop such speaker specific models, necessitating the use of a speaker independent approach to SCSS. This paper proposes a speaker independent approach to SCSS using sinusoidal features. The algorithm develops speaker models for novel speakers from the speech mixtures under test, using prior training data available from other speakers.
