- Notebooks for extensive model benchmarking.
- Modular (but not too much) code base enabling easy testing for new ideas.
Main Requirements and Installation
Highly recommended to use miniconda for easier installation.
Install TTS using
setup.py. It will install all of the requirements automatically and make TTS available to all the python environment as an ordinary python module.
python setup.py develop
Or you can use
requirements.txt to install the requirements only.
pip install -r requirements.txt

Sample Model Output
Below you see Tacotron model state after 16K iterations with batch-size 32 with LJSpeech dataset.
"Recent research at Harvard has shown meditating for as little as 8 weeks can actually increase the grey matter in the parts of the brain responsible for emotional regulation and learning."

Datasets and Data-Loading
TTS provides a generic dataloader easy to use for your custom dataset.
You just need to write a simple function to format the dataset. Check
datasets/preprocess.py to see some examples.
After that, you need to set
dataset fields in
Some of the public datasets that we successfully applied TTS:
Training and Fine-tuning LJ-Speech
Here you can find a CoLab notebook for a hands-on example, training LJSpeech. Or you can manually follow the guideline below.
To start with, split
metadata.csv into train and validation subsets respectively
metadata_val.csv. Note that for text-to-speech, validation performance might be misleading since the loss value does not directly measure the voice quality to the human ear and it also does not measure the attention module performance. Therefore, running the model with new sentences and listening to the results is the best way to go.
shuf metadata.csv > metadata_shuf.csv head -n 12000 metadata_shuf.csv > metadata_train.csv tail -n 1100 metadata_shuf.csv > metadata_val.csv
To train a new model, you need to define your own
config.json file (check the example) and call with the command below. You also set the model architecture in
python TTS/bin/train_tts.py --config_path TTS/tts/configs/config.json
To fine-tune a model, use
python TTS/bin/train_tts.py --config_path TTS/tts/configs/config.json --restore_path /path/to/your/model.pth.tar
To continue an old training run, use
python TTS/bin/train_tts.py --continue_path /path/to/your/run_folder/
For multi-GPU training use
distribute.py. It enables process based multi-GPU training where each process uses a single GPU.
CUDA_VISIBLE_DEVICES="0,1,4" TTS/bin/distribute.py --config_path TTS/tts/configs/config.json
Each run creates a new output folder and
config.json is copied under this folder.
In case of any error or intercepted execution, if there is no checkpoint yet under the output folder, the whole folder is going to be removed.
You can also enjoy Tensorboard, if you point Tensorboard argument
--logdir to the experiment folder.
This repository is governed by Mozilla's code of conduct and etiquette guidelines. For more details, please read the Mozilla Community Participation Guidelines.
Please send your Pull Request to
dev branch. Before making a Pull Request, check your changes for basic mistakes and style problems by using a linter. We have cardboardlinter setup in this repository, so for example, if you've made some changes and would like to run the linter on just the changed code, you can use the follow command:
pip install pylint cardboardlint cardboardlinter --refspec master
Collaborative Experimentation Guide
If you like to use TTS to try a new idea and like to share your experiments with the community, we urge you to use the following guideline for a better collaboration. (If you have an idea for better collaboration, let us know)
- Create a new branch.
- Open an issue pointing your branch.
- Explain your experiment.
- Share your results as you proceed. (Tensorboard log files, audio results, visuals etc.)
- Use LJSpeech dataset (for English) if you like to compare results with the released models. (It is the most open scalable dataset for quick experimentation)
- Implement the model.
- Generate human-like speech on LJSpeech dataset.
- Generate human-like speech on a different dataset (Nancy) (TWEB).
- Train TTS with r=1 successfully.
- Enable process based distributed training. Similar to (https://github.com/fastai/imagenet-fast/).
- Adapting Neural Vocoder. TTS works with WaveRNN and ParallelWaveGAN (https://github.com/erogol/WaveRNN and https://github.com/erogol/ParallelWaveGAN)
- Multi-speaker embedding.
- Model optimization (model export, model pruning etc.)
