Relative pitch estimation of multiple instruments


We present an algorithm based on probabilistic latent component analysis and employ it for relative pitch estimation of multiple instruments in polyphonic music. A multilayered positive deconvolution is performed concurrently on mixture constant-Q transforms to obtain a relative pitch track and timbral signature for each instrument. Initial experimental results on mixtures of two instruments are quite promising and show high levels of accuracy.
