The task of onset detection is relevant in various contexts such as music information retrieval and music production, while reverberation has always been an important part of the production process. The effect may be the product of the recording space, or it may be artificially added, and in our context destructive. In this paper, we investigate the effect of reverberation on onset detection tasks. We compare state-of-the art techniques and show that the algorithms have varying degrees of robustness in the presence of reverberation depending on the content of the analysed audio material.
