Digital Music Processing Experiments: Building a Musical Information System: Tool Development in MATLAB
If you like music and interested in digital signal processing, this book is for you. The author experimented with digital music processing in his diploma thesis that you, dear Reader, can read in this book. It is not a science book with hard mathematics but a documentation of interesting experiments on note, chord and beat detection, supported with figures and source codes. The author's aim is to arouse the interest in musical processing with computers and help to take the first steps to make further work. For the sake of simplicity the experiments were done in MATLAB, the popular mathematical environment. This environment makes hard calculations and tasks easier such as Fast Fourier Transform, vector operations or wave plotting. The author used real songs for this thesis, you can find a complete list of them in the appendix. There can be also found the source codes of developed algorithms and methods.
