Note onset detection is one of the most investigated tasks in Music Information Retrieval (MIR) and various detection methods have been proposed in previous research. The primary aim of this paper is to investigate different fusion policies to combine existing onset detectors, thus achieving better results. Existing algorithms are fused using three(More)
Current melody extraction approaches perform poorly on the genre of opera [1, 2]. The singer's formant is defined as a prominent spectral-envelope peak around 3 kHz found in the singing of professional Western opera singers [3]. In this paper we introduce a novel melody extraction algorithm based on this feature for opera signals. At the front end, it(More)
