Computing pitch names in tonal music: a comparative analysis of pitch spelling algorithms

Abstract:

A pitch spelling algorithm predicts the pitch names (e.g., C♯4, B♭5 etc.) of the notes in a passage of tonal music, when given the onset-time, MIDI note number and possibly the duration and voice of each note. A new algorithm, called ps13, was compared with the algorithms of Longuet-Higgins, Cambouropoulos, Temperley and Chew and Chen by running various versions of these algorithms on a ‘clean’, score-derived test corpus, C, containing 195972 notes, equally divided betwee...
