Chroma-based audio features, which closely correlate to the aspect of harmony, are a well-established tool in processing and analyzing music data. There are many ways of computing and enhancing chroma features, which results in a large number of chroma variants with different properties. In this paper, we present a chroma toolbox [13], which contains MATLAB implementations for extracting various types of recently proposed pitch-based and chroma-based audio features. Providing the MATLAB…

We present a new technique for audio signal comparison based on tonal subsequence alignment and its application to detect cover versions (i.e., different performances of the same underlying musical
Audio thumbnailing of popular music using chroma-based representations
TLDR
This work presents a system for producing short, representative samples (or "audio thumbnails") of selections of popular music, and presents a development of the chromagram, a variation on traditional time-frequency distributions that seeks to represent the cyclic attribute of pitch perception, known as chroma.
A comparative study of tonal acoustic features for a symbolic level music-to-score alignment
TLDR
This paper confirms that chroma vectors drawn from representations using a logarithmic frequency scale are the most efficient features, and lead to a good precision, even with a simple alignment strategy, and shows that the relative performance of the features do not depend on possible musical score degradations.

It is hoped that by utilizing the notion of a musically-motivated mid-level representation, this work may help bridge the gap between symbolic and audio research.
Tonal description of music audio signals
TLDR
This doctoral dissertation proposes and evaluates a computational approach for the automatic description of tonal aspects of music from the analysis of polyphonic audio signals that contributes to bridge the gap between audio and symbolic-oriented methods without the need of a perfect transcription.
Efficient Index-Based Audio Matching
TLDR
The combination of various deformation- and fault-tolerance mechanisms allows us to employ standard indexing techniques to obtain an efficient, index-based matching procedure, thus providing an important step towards semantically searching large-scale real-world music collections.
