Title: Tone onset detection using an auditory model
Language (ISO): en
Abstract: Onset detection is an important step for music transcription and other tasks frequently encountered in music processing. Although several approaches have been developed for this task, neither of them works well under all circumstances. In Bauer et al. (2012) we investigated the influence of several factors like instrumentation on the accuracy of onset detection. In this work, this investigation is extended by a computational model of the human auditory periphery. Instead of the original signal the output of the simulated auditory nerve fibers is used. The main challenge here is combining the outputs of all auditory nerve fibers to one feature for onset detection. Different approaches are presented and compared. Our investigation shows that using the auditory model output leads to essential improvements of the onset detection rate for some instruments compared to previous results.
