Phase-based harmonic/percussive separation

Estefanía Cano, Mark Plumbley, Christian Dittmar

In this paper, a method for separation of harmonic and percussive elements in music recordings is presented. The proposed method is based on a simple spectral peak detection step followed by a phase expectation analysis that discriminates between harmonic and percussive components. The proposed method was tested on a database of 10 audio tracks and has shown superior results to the reference state-of-the-art approach.
