In this contribution a formerly developed probabilistic framework for the simultaneous detection of chords and keys in polyphonic audio is further extended and validated. The system behaviour is controlled by a small set of carefully defined free parameters. This has permitted us to conduct an experimental study which sheds a new light on the importance of musicological knowledge in the context of chord extraction. Some of the obtained results are at least surprising and, to our knowledge, never reported as such before.
