Download Complex domain onset detection for musical signals
We present a novel method for onset detection in musical signals. It improves over previous energy-based and phase-based approaches by combining both types of information in the complex domain. It generates a detection function that is sharp at the position of onsets and smooth everywhere else. Results on a handlabelled data-set show that high detection rates can be achieved at very low error rates. The approach is more robust than its predecessors both theoretically and practically.
Download A comparison Between Fixed and Multiresolution Analysis for Onset Detection in Musical Signals
A study is presented for the use of multiresolution analysis-based onset detection in the complex domain. It shows that using variable time-resolution across frequency bands generates sharper detection functions for higher bands and more accurate detection functions for lower bands. The resulting method improves the localisation of onsets on fixed-resolution schemes, by favouring the increased time precision of higher subbands during the combination of results.
