Beschreibungen:Zusammenfassung (dt.)

This thesis addresses the development of a system for pitch-informed solo and accompaniment separation capable of separating main instruments from music accompaniment regardless of the musical genre of the track, or type of music accompaniment. For the solo instrument, only pitched monophonic instruments were considered in a single-channel scenario where no panning or spatial location information is available. In the proposed method, pitch information is used as an initial stage of a sinusoidal modeling approach that attempts to estimate the spectral information of the solo instrument from a given audio mixture. Instead of estimating the solo instrument on a frame by frame basis, the proposed method gathers information of tone objects to perform separation. Tone-based processing allowed the inclusion of novel processing stages for attack refinement, transient interference reduction, common amplitude modulation (CAM) of tone objects, and for better estimation of non-harmonic elements that can occur in musical instrument tones. The proposed solo and accompaniment algorithm is an efficient method suitable for real-world applications. A study was conducted to better model magnitude, frequency, and phase of isolated musical instrument tones. As a result of this study, temporal envelope smoothness, inharmonicty of musical instruments, and phase expectation were exploited in the proposed separation method. Additionally, an algorithm for harmonic/percussive separation based on phase expectation was proposed. The algorithm shows improved perceptual quality with respect to state-of-the-art methods for harmonic/percussive separation. The proposed solo and accompaniment method obtained perceptual quality scores comparable to other state-of-the-art algorithms under the SiSEC 2011 and SiSEC 2013 campaigns, and outperformed the comparison algorithm on the instrumental dataset described in this thesis.As a use-case of solo and accompaniment separation, a listening test procedure was conducted to assess separation quality requirements in the context of music education. Results from the listening test showed that solo and accompaniment tracks should be optimized differently to suit quality requirements of music education. The Songs2See application was presented as commercial music learning software which includes the proposed solo and accompaniment separation method.
