In this work a sound transformation model based on Gaussian Mixture Models is introduced and evaluated for audio morphing. To this aim, the GMM is used to build the acoustic model of the source sound, and a set of conversion functions, which rely on the acoustic model, is used to transform the source sound. The method is experimented on a set of monophonic sounds and results show that it provides promising features.
