We propose to tackle the problem of end-to-end learning for raw waveforms signals by introducing lcamablc continuous time-frequency atoms. The derivation of these filters is achieved by first, defining a functional space with a given smoothness order and boundary conditions. From this space, we derive the parametric analytical filters. Their differentiability property allows gradient- based optimization. As such, one can equip any Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) with these filters. This enables .us to tackle in a front-end fashion a large scale bird detection task based on the freefieldlOlO dataset known to contain key challenges, such as high dimensional inputs (> 100000) and the presence of multiple sources and soundscapcs.
