Interactive Real-time Musical Systems (2009)
Abstract / truncated to 115 words
This thesis focuses on the development of automatic accompaniment sys- tems. We investigate previous systems and look at a range of approaches that have been attempted for the problem of beat tracking. Most beat trackers are intended for the purposes of music information retrieval where a ‘black box’ approach is tested on a wide variety of music genres. We highlight some of the difficulties facing offline beat trackers and design a new approach for the problem of real-time drum tracking, developing a system, B-Keeper, which makes reasonable assumptions on the nature of the signal and is provided with useful prior knowledge. Having developed the system with offline studio recordings, we look to test the system ... toggle 3 keywordsinteractive real-time music systems – beat tracking – b-keeper
