Solo Plucked String Sound Detection by the Energy-To-Spectral Flux Ratio (ESFR)

We address the problem of distinguishing solo plucked string sound from speech. Due to the harmonic components present in both types of signals, a low complexity music/speech classifier often misclassifies these signals. To capture the sustained harmonic structures observed in solo plucked string sound, we propose a new feature, the Energy-to-Spectral Flux Ratio (ESFR). The values and the statistics of the ESFR for solo plucked string sound were distinct from those for speech when calculated over windows of 20 to 50 ms. By building a low complexity detector with the ESFR, we demonstrate the discriminating performance of the ESFR feature for the considered problem.
