Fundamental frequency (f0) estimation from polyphonic music includes the tasks of multiple-f0, melody, vocal, and bass line estimation. Historically these problems have been approached separately, and only recently, using learning-based approaches. We present a multitask deep learning architecture that jointly estimates outputs for various tasks including multiple-f0, melody, vocal and bass line estimation, and is trained using a large, semi-automatically annotated dataset. We show that the
