Automatic Music Transcription

A small framework for conducting deep learning experiments for the MIREX AMT task. The aim of this project is to create a set of utility functions and classes that make the experiments easier to implement and replicate. A sample set of experiments is included. The classes should be reusable for Melody Extraction task since melody can be viewed as a monophonic subset of a complete transcription of audio.

  • Dataset handling
    • MusicNet dataset loading and automatic resampling. Other datasets such as MIREX 2007 MultiF0, Bach10, Su, MedleyDB are not supported yet but should be easy to add.
    • Slicing of the dataset audio for creating small testing subsets.
    • Automatic processing of a dataset - spectrogram precomputation and management
  • Visualization tools for examining the model output.
    • Piano roll for comparison between the gold truth and estimation
    • Interactive audio output for Jupyter notebooks
    • STFT and constant-Q spectrograms (using librosa)
  • Tensorflow model skeleton
    • Training, evaluation and inference functions
    • Detailed evaluation summary in Tensorboard
      • Evaluation of the testing set using mir_eval, implementation of basic metrics in Tensorflow for training information
      • Visual qualitative example = piano roll of a transcription
    • Saving the model weights and topology


The framework is intended for use with Jupyter but majority of the functions are usable also as standard modules. Only the visualization module might fail to run outside of interactive context. Examples can be found in this repository but the structure of the experiments stays the same:

  • import the modules
  • load data
  • create datasets
  • define a network topology
  • construct the network
  • train the network
  • optionally evaluate the network in the Jupyter notebook
