Multiple F0 estimation in vocal ensembles using convolutional neural networks

Helena Cuesta, Brian McFee, Emilia Gomez
2020 Zenodo  
Our models outperform a state-of-the-art method intended for the same music genre when evaluated with an increased F0 resolution, as well as a general-purpose method for multi-F0 estimation.  ...  The pitch salience function is subsequently thresholded to obtain a multiple F0 estimation output.  ...  This work is partially supported by the European Commission under the TROMPA project (H2020 770376) and MARL-NYU (as part of a two-months research stay).  ...

Data-driven Pitch Content Description of Choral Singing Recordings

Helena Cuesta, Emilia Gómez
2022 Zenodo  
Finally, we propose two methods to characterize vocal unison performances in terms of pitch dispersion.  ...  The second contribution is a set of deep learning models for multiple F0 estimation, streaming, and voice assignment of vocal quartets, mainly based on convolutional neural networks designed leveraging  ...  We wish for a bright future for research on choir music in the MIR field.  ...

Score-Informed Analysis Of Intonation And Pitch Modulation In Jazz Solos

Jakob Abeßer, Estefanía Cano, Klaus Frieler, Martin Pfleiderer, Wolf-Georg Zaddach
2015 Zenodo  
There are many studies on vibrato detection in audio recordings [14] , particularly for singing voice [8, 9, 12] .  ...  Based on the extracted f 0 contours, we compute several contour features (see Section 4.5) to describe their temporal shape.  ...

The role of auditory feedback in speech and song

Tim A. Pruitt, Peter Q. Pfordresher
2015 Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance  
When singing a melody or producing sentences, we take for granted the fact that the sounds we create (auditory feedback) match the intended consequences of our actions.  ...  On the other hand, AAF manipulations of pitch disrupt sequencing but not timing.  ...  This method of pitch estimation serves to reduce spurious F 0 measurements that result from pitch tracking artifacts or idiosyncratic voice qualities (e.g., "voice breaking") and has been used in previous  ...

Pitch tracking of bird vocalizations and an automated process using YIN-bird

Colm O'Reilly, Naomi Harte, Hynek Burda
2017 Cogent Biology  
To use pitch as a feature, researchers need confidence in their pitch extraction system.  ...  This paper discusses pitch estimation performance on a variety of common bird vocalizations.  ...  Babacan et al. (2013) evaluated pitch tracking on singing voice, with PRAAT and RAPT providing the best determination of voicing boundaries.  ...

Multilinear Grammar: Ranks and Interpretations

Dafydd Gibbon, Sascha Griffiths
2017 Open Linguistics  
AbstractMultilinear Grammar provides a framework for integrating the many different syntagmatic structures of language into a coherent semiotically based Rank Interpretation Architecture, with default  ...  Default computational models for each rank are proposed, based on a Procedural Plausibility Condition: incremental processing in linear time with finite working memory.  ...  And in particular it is becoming clear that a reappraisal of the descriptive capacity of finite state systems and plausible extensions is needed.  ...

The adaptive analysis system is investigated by means of simple tracking experiments to demonstrate the effect of the smoothness constraints and compare the results with a standard STFT base frequency  ...  The potential of the adaptive strategy for the modeling of sinusoidal transients is discussed and it is shown that it achieves similar transient quality as a previously proposed method, however, with considerably  ...  The example concerned with tracking of frequency evolution is a singing voice signal that contains considerable pitch changes.  ...
