Determination of the meter of musical audio signals : Seeking recurrences in beat segment descriptors

  title={Determination of the meter of musical audio signals : Seeking recurrences in beat segment descriptors},
  author={Fabien Gouyon and Perfecto Herrera},
We address the problem of classifying polyphonic musical audio signals by their meter: the number of beats between regularly recurring accents (or downbeats). The problem is simplified to a ‘duple ’/‘triple’ decision.
