Musical Audio Beat Tracking using Hidden Markov Model
Lata Dhulekar | Dr. S. K. Shah
Abstract: The proposed method describes the beat tracking system of musical audio signals. Here; the beat tracking deals with the explicit modeling of non-beat states and estimates the time between consecutive beat events. The expected accuracy of the estimated beats is also provided additionally. To predict the accuracy of the beat estimate a k-nearest neighbor regression algorithm is used. A database of 222 musical signals of various genres is used to statistically evaluate the performance for beat tracking system. A new perspective for beat detection is presented which can be used to enhance the performance of the proposed algorithm and relates it with the human tapping.
