We introduce a Scattering Inverse Network (SIN) to generate univariate time-series.

The SIN is similar to a deep convolutional autoencoder. However, the encoder is not learned, but computed with a scattering transform defined from prior information on sparse time-frequency properties of time-series. In turn, the generator is trained by solving an inverse problem in an adapted metric. It has a similar causal architecture as a WaveNet and provides a simpler mathematical model related to time-frequency decompositions.

Numerical experiments demonstrate that this SIN generates realistic musical and speech signals. It is able to transform low-level musical attributes such as pitch with a linear transformation in the embedding space of scattering coefficients.
