[en] Recent advances in deep learning have shown impressive results in the domain of text-to-speech. To this end, a deep neural network is usually trained using a corpus of several hours of professionally recorded speech from a single speaker. Giving a new voice to such a model is highly expensive, as it requires recording a new dataset and retraining the model. A recent research introduced a three-stage pipeline that allows to clone a voice unseen during training from only a few seconds of reference speech, and without retraining the model. The authors share remarkably natural-sounding results, but provide no implementation. We reproduce this framework and open-source the first public implementation of it. We adapt the framework with a newer vocoder model, so as to make it run in real-time.
