AbstractThe aim of this work is to study how a pitch detection algorithm can help in the task of locating solos in a musical excerpt. Output parameters of the pitch detection algorithm are studied, and enhancements for the task of solo location are proposed. A solo is defined as a section of a piece where an instrument is in foreground compared to the other instrument and to other section of the piece.
