Accordion Music and its Automatic Transcription to MIDI Format

Document Thumbnail

The paper is devoted to the problems related to the automatic transcription of the accordion sound. The accordion is a musical instrument from the free-reed aerophone family that is able to produce polyphonic, multi-chord music. First the playing modes are briefly characterized and problems related to the polyphonic nature of the sound is discussed. Then the results of the analysis and MIDI transcription of the right-side monophonic and polyphonic melodies are presented. Finally, an attempt to transcribe music generated by both sides of the instrument recorded in two channels is presented giving the foundation to further research.
