Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Many applications of Music Information Retrieval can benefit from effective isolation of the music sources. Earlier work by the authors led to the development of a system that is based on Azi- muth Discrimination and Resynthesis (ADRess) and can extract the singing voice from reverberant stereophonic mixtures. We propose an extension to our previous method that is not based on ADRess and exploits both channels of the stereo mix more effec- tively. For the evaluation of the system we use a dataset that con- tains songs convolved during mastering as well as the mixing process (i.e. “real-world” conditions). The metrics for objective evaluation are based on bss_eval.
