Abstract

A singing transcription system which transcribes human singing voice to musical notes is described in this paper. The fact that human singing rarely follows standard musical scale makes it a challenge to implement such a system. This system utilizes some new methods to deal with the issue of imprecise musical scale of input voice of a human singer, such as spectral standard deviation used for note segmentation, Adaptive Round Semitone used for melody tracking and Tune Map acting as a musical grammar constraint in melody tracking. Furthermore, a large vocabulary speech recognizer performing the lyric recognition tasks is also added, which is a new trial in a singing transcription system.
