Separating voices in MIDI

  title={Separating voices in MIDI},
  author={S\oren Tjagvad Madsen and Gerhard Widmer},
This paper presents an algorithm for converting midi events into logical voices. The algorithm is fundamentally based on the pitch proximity principle. New heuristics are introduced and evaluated in order to handle unsolved situations. The algorithm is tested on ground truth data: inventions and fugues by J. S. Bach. Due to its left to right processing it also runs on real time input.
