In this paper, a new morphing algorithm for transient sounds is introduced. Input sounds are first projected onto orthogonal bases from which intermediate or novel sounds can be generated. The proposed algorithm uses a shift invariant version of discrete wavelet transform and the singular value decomposition (SVD) to represent the input sound signals over a set of orthogonal bases. Interpolation is carried out between the weight vectors from the SVD to produce a new weight vector used for synthesising a new set of wavelet coefficients. The morphed sound is generated by taking the inverse discrete wavelet transform of the combined weighted bases. The proposed algorithm not only generates a range of new sounds, but also represents the input sounds in a more compact fashion.
