Detection of Musical Pitch from Recorded Solo Performances

Document Thumbnail

Our frequency-domain-based pitch detector graphs musical pitch as the log of detected fundamental frequency on a Unix computer. Recorded virtuosic solo performances are difficult to track when they contain frequency-obscuring reverberation, or when they are dry, since artifact noises can then interfere. This paper presents practical methods for overcoming these problems and offers provisional limits on the accuracy of the detected fundamental frequency.
