Improved template-based chord recognition using the CRP feature
The task of chord recognition in music signals is often based upon pattern matching in chromagrams. Many variants of chroma exist and quality of chord recognition is related to the feature employed. Chroma Reduced Pitch (CRP) features are interesting in this context as they were designed to improve timbre invariance for the purpose of query retrieval. Their reapplication to chord recognition, however, has not been successful in previous studies. We consider that the default parametrisation of CRP attenuates some tonal information, as well as timbral, and consider alternatives to this default. We also provide a variant of a recently proposed compositional chroma feature, adapted for music pieces, rather than one instrument. Experiments described show improved results compared to existing features.
