The automatic extraction of the melody of the music from polyphonic recordings is a challenging problem for which no general solutions currently exist. We present a novel interface for semi-automatic melody extraction with the goal to provide highly accurate pitch tracks of the lead voice with minimal user intervention. Audio-visual feedback facilitates the validation of the obtained melodic contour and user control of the analysis parameters enables direct and effective control over the voice
