Summary: 
In this paper, we introduce a generalized minimum mean-square error short-time spectral amplitude estimator with a new prior estimation of the speech probability density function based on moment-cumulant transformation. From the objective and subjective evaluation experiments, we show the improved noise reduction performance of the proposed method.
