Live Drum Separation Using Probabilistic Spectral Clustering Based on the Itakura-Saito Divergence

  title={Live Drum Separation Using Probabilistic Spectral Clustering Based on the Itakura-Saito Divergence},
  author={Eric Battenberg and Victoria Huang and David Wessel},
We present a live drum separation system for a specific target drumset to be used as a front end in a complete live drum understanding system. Our system decomposes drum note onsets onto spectral drum templates by adapting techniques from non-negative matrix factorization. Multiple templates per drum are computed using a new Gamma mixture model clustering procedure to account for the variety of sounds that can be produced by a single drum. This clustering procedure imposes an Itakura-Saito… CONTINUE READING
