A signal processing method is described, which separates harmonic sounds by applying linear models for the overtone series of sounds. Time-varying sinusoidal parameters are estimated in an iterative algorithm which is initialized using a multipitch estimator that finds the number of concurrent sounds and their frequency components. The iterative process then improves the estimates using the least-squares criterion. The harmonic stucture is retained by keeping the frequency ratio of overtones… CONTINUE READING
