Automatic Music Transcription: An Experiment with Simple Tools

Władysław Homenda


This study is focused on an automatic music transcription, i.e. converting acoustic music, stored in the form of WAVE files, to MIDI like data. An experiment on this topic is the key point of the paper. The experiment is aimed on determining what kinds of music could be successfully recognized with a simple tool rather than on searching for new recognition methods. Fourier transform was used as the recognition tool. It was utilized for analysis of music of simple harmony played with basic musical instruments.
