Score-Informed Source Separation for Music Signals

Sebastian Ewert & Meinard Müller
In recent years, the processing of audio recordings by exploiting additional musical knowledge has turned out to be a promising research direction. In particular, additional note information as specified by a musical score or a MIDI file has been employed to support various audio processing tasks such as source separation, audio parameterization, performance analysis, or instrument equalization. In this contribution, we provide an overview of approaches for score-informed source separation and illustrate their potential by...
