This work presents a new approach to assessment of the quality of onset detection functions on the example of bowed instruments recordings. Using this method, we test a vibrato suppression technique based on a maximum filter. The results, obtained with the aid of a specially constructed database of audio recordings, reveal problems connected with certain qualities of the sound signal generated by a bowed instrument and with the effectiveness of the onset detection process.
