This paper presents a drum transcription algorithm adjusted to the constraints of real-time audio. We introduce an instance filtering (IF) method using sub-band onset detection, which improves the performance of a system having at its core a feature-based K-nearest neighbor classifier (KNN). The architecture proposed allows for adapting different parts of the algorithm for either bass drum, snare drum or hi-hat cymbals. The open-source system is implemented in the graphic programming languages… CONTINUE READING
