Singing Voice Detection in Polyphonic Music using Predominant Pitch

  title={Singing Voice Detection in Polyphonic Music using Predominant Pitch},
  author={Vishweshwara Rao and S. Ramakrishnan and Preeti Rao},
This paper demonstrates the superiority of energy-based features derived from the knowledge of predominant-pitch, for singing voice detection in polyphonic music over commonly used spectral features. However, such energy-based features tend to misclassify loud, pitched instruments. To provide robustness to such accompaniment we exploit the relative instability of the pitch contour of the singing voice by attenuating harmonic spectral content belonging to stable-pitch instruments, using… CONTINUE READING
