A method and apparatus for speaker recognition is provided that matches the noise in training data to noise in testing data using spectral addition. Under spectral addition, the mean and variance for a plurality of frequency components are adjusted in the training data and the test data so that each mean and variance is matched in a resulting matched training signal and matched test signal. The adjustments made to the training data and test data add to the mean and variance of the training data and test data instead of subtracting from the mean and variance.
