Preliminary results on string instrument recognition

Jason Smalridge, Luis Rodrigues, Lisa Lorenzino


This paper analyzes and compares the spectrum of three string instruments obtained from the Fast Fourier Transform of the sound waves. It is shown that comparing the spectrums of different instruments holds a strong potential to be used as a first stage of an automatic instrument recognizer.
