A CLASSIFICATION-BASED POLYPHONIC PIANO TRANSCRIPTION APPROACH USING LEARNED FEATURE REPRESENTATIONS Juhan Nam Jiquan Ngiam Honglak Lee Malcolm Slaney Stanford University Stanford University Univ. of Michigan, Ann Arbor Yahoo!

They are trained with short-time acoustic features and labels for the corresponding Recently unsupervised feature learning methods have shown note class (i.e., note on/off) and then used to predict the note great promise as a way of extracting features from high di- labels for new input data.

It is a challenging problem because multiple notes on the other hand, unsupervised feature learning methods are often played at once (polyphony), and thus individual that automatically capture the statistical relationship in data notes interfere by virtue of their harmonic relations. and learn feature representations have shown great promise.
