Instrument-Centered Music Transcription of Bass Guitar Tracks

In this paper, we propose an instrument-centered bass guitar transcription algorithm. Instead of aiming at a general-purpose bass transcription algorithm, we incorporate knowledge about the instrument construction and typical playing techniques of the electric bass guitar. In addition to the commonly extracted score-level parameters note onset, offset, and pitch, we also estimate the additional instrument-level note parameters string number, fret number, plucking style, and expression style. The proposed algorithm achieved an F-measure value of 0.901 for the note-wise transcription evaluation on a novel evaluation dataset and outperformed three state-of-the-art bass transcription algorithms.
