This paper introduces an analysis method based on the generalization of the phase vocoder approach to non-stationary sinusoidal modeling. This new method is then compared to the reassignment method for the estimation of all the parameters of the model (phase, amplitude, frequency, amplitude modulation, and frequency modulation), and to the Cramér-Rao bounds. It turns out that this method compares to the state of the art in terms of performances, with the great advantage of being much simpler.
