The openSMILE feature extration tool enables you to extract large audio feature spaces in realtime. It combines features from Music Information Retrieval and Speech Processing. SMILE is an acronym for Speech & Music Interpretation by Large-space Extraction. It is written in C++ and is available as both a standalone commandline executable as well as a dynamic library. The main features of openSMILE are its capability of on-line incremental processing and its modularity. Feature extractor components can be freely interconnected to create new and custom features, all via a simple configuration file. New components can be added to openSMILE via an easy binary plugin interface and a comprehensive API.
Here’s the extensive feature list:
Cross-platform (Windows, Linux, Mac)
Fast and efficient incremental processing in real-time
High modularity and reusability of components
Multi-threading support for parallel feature extraction
WAVE file reader/writer
Sound recording and playback via PortAudio library.
Acoustic echo cancellation for full duplex recording/playback in an open-microphone setting (via the Speex codec library)
