A method is described which analyzes the basic pattern of beats in a piece of music, the musical meter. The analysis is performed jointly at three different time scales: at the temporally atomic tatum pulse level, at the tactus pulse level which corresponds to the tempo of a piece, and at the musical measure level. Acoustic signals from arbitrary musical(More)
The aim of this paper is to investigate the feasibility of an audio-based context recognition system. Here, context recognition refers to the automatic classification of the context or an environment around a device. A system is developed and compared to the accuracy of human listeners in the same task. Particular emphasis is placed on the computational(More)
In this paper, we address the problem of computational auditory scene recognition and describe methods to classify auditory scenes into predefined classes. By auditory scene recognition we mean recognition of an environment using audio information only. The auditory scenes comprised tens of everyday outside and inside environments, such as streets,(More)

This article proposes a method for the automatic transcription of the melody, bass line, and chords in polyphonic pop music. The method uses a frame-wise pitch-salience estimator as a feature extraction front-end. For the melody and bass-line transcription, this is followed by acoustic modeling of note events and musicological modeling of note transitions.(More)
Automatic music transcription is considered by many to be a key enabling technology in music signal processing. However, the performance of transcription systems is still significantly below that of a human expert, and accuracies reported in recent years seem to have reached a limit, although the field is still very active. In this paper we analyse(More)
