BillaBoop: Real-Time Voice-Driven Drum Generator
We describe a tool for transcribing voice generated percussive rhythms. The system consists of: (a) a segmentation component which separates the monophonic input stream into percussive events (b) a descriptors generation component that computes a set of acoustic features from each of the extracted segments, (c) a machine learning component which assigns to each of the segmented sounds of the input stream a symbolic class, (d) a beat generator that generates an output rhythmic stream. All these components are integrated into a VST plugin that allows its use for live applications.
