The Importance of the Non-harmonic Residual for Automatic Musical Instrument Recognition of Pitched Instruments

Document Thumbnail

In different papers dealing with automatic musical instrument recognition of pitched instruments, the features used for classification are based solely on the fundamental frequencies and the harmonic series, ignoring the nonharmonic residual. In this paper we explore whether instrument recognition rate of pitched instruments is decreased by removing the non-harmonic information present in the sound signal.
