Musical Instrument Recognition In Multi-Instrument Audio Contexts

Venkatesh Shenoy Kadandale, Frederic Font
2018 Zenodo  
Automatic musical instrument recognition is an important aspect of machine listening. In this project, we deal with instrument recognition in the multi-instrument audio contexts.  ...  We investigate the possibility of improving the instrument recognition performance by using alternative data representations along with the original data.  ...  For example, an ideal dataset for musical instrument recognition is the one which covers most of the musical instruments recorded in different environments, played in different styles and genres, perhaps  ...
