Abstract

Multi-pitch estimation of sources in music is an ongoing research area that has a wealth of applications in music information retrieval systems. This paper presents the systematic evaluations of over a dozen competing methods and algorithms for extracting the fundamental frequencies of pitched sound sources in polyphonic music. The evaluations were carried out as part of the Music Information Retrieval Evaluation eXchange (MIREX) over the course of two years, from 2007 to 2008. The generation of the dataset and its corresponding ground-truth, the methods by which systems can be evaluated, and the evaluation results of the different systems are presented and discussed.
