Task of the 1st Challenge

The task is speaker conversion, which is a well-known basic task in voice conversion.

We focus on 16 kHz speech and signal-to-signal conversion strategies. No transcription will be provided and the use of phonetic information given manually is NOT allowed. Participants are free of using additional data (for training purposes) different from the database from which the speakers corpora will be provided.
