Recently, communication, digital music creation, and computer storage technology has led to the dynamic increasing of online music repositories in both number and size, where automatic content-based indexing is critical for users to identify possible favorite music pieces. Timbre recognition is one of the important subtasks for such an indexing purpose. Lots of research has been carried out in exploring new sound features to describe the characteristics of a musical sound. The moving picture… Expand

MIRAI : Multi-hierarchical Music Automatic Indexing and Retrieval System
Recently, numerous successful approaches have been developed for instrument recognition in monophonic sounds. Unfortunately, none of them can be successfully applied to polyphonic sounds.Expand
MIRAI: Multi-hierarchical, FS-Tree Based Music Information Retrieval System
TLDR
The goal is to build a cooperative query answering system (QAS), for a musical database, retrieving from it all objects satisfying queries like "find all musical pieces in pentatonic scale with a viola and piano where viola is playing for minimum 20 seconds and piano for minimum 10 seconds". Expand

Sound Isolation by Harmonic Peak Partition For Music Instrument Recognition
TLDR
A novel music information retrieval system with MPEG-7-based descriptors and classifiers which can retrieve the important time-frequency timbre information and isolate sound sources in polyphonic musical objects, where two instruments are playing at the same time, by energy clustering between heterogeneous harmonic peaks are proposed.

This article presents a complete system allowing the management of a drum patterns (or drumloops) database and formulated queries in this database are formulated with spoken onomatopoeias—short meaningless words imitating the different sounds of the drumkit. Expand
Content-Based Classification, Search, and Retrieval of Audio
TLDR
The audio analysis, search, and classification engine described here reduces sounds to perceptual and acoustical features, which lets users search or retrieve sounds by any one feature or a combination of them, by specifying previously learned classes based on these features. Expand
