A Beat Induction Method for Musical Audio Signals

  title={A Beat Induction Method for Musical Audio Signals},
  author={Fabien Gouyon and Perfecto Herrera},
We present a method for segmenting musical audio signals with respect to a particular metrical level: the beat. No assumption has been made regarding sound sources. We situate this proposal with respect to recent models. The model proposed seeks recurrences in values of audio signal low-level features. These features are computed at the scale of the smallest metrical level: the tick —or tatum. Focusing on energy features in frequency subbands gave better results than on the whole frequency… CONTINUE READING
