Recovering a signal from its amplitude spectrogram, or phase recovery, exhibits many applications in acoustic signal processing. When only an amplitude spectrogram is available and no explicit information is given for the phases, the Griffin-Lim algorithm (GLA) is one of the most utilized methods for phase recovery. However, GLA often requires many iterations and results in low perceptual quality in some cases. In this letter, we propose two novel algorithms based on GLA and the alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM) for better recovery with fewer iteration. Some interpretation of the existing methods and their relation to the proposed method are also provided. Evaluations are performed with both objective measure and subjective test.
