2008 Handbook of Signal Processing in Acoustics  
A system for the automatic transcription of music is described. Signal processing methods are introduced that solve different facets of the overall problem. Main emphasis is laid on finding the multiple pitches of concurrent musical sounds. Sound onset detection and musical meter estimation are described to some extent. Other topics discussed are noise robustness, estimation of the number of concurrent voices, sound separation, and musical instrument recognition. The presented system is
