  • Patent number: 8283548
    Abstract: Method for recognizing similarly recurring patterns of notes in a piece of music containing note sequences distributed among parallel channels, the method having the steps of: a) repeatedly segmenting each channel and, for each type of segmentation, determining segments which are similar to one another and storing the latter in lists of candidate patterns with the respective entities thereof; b) calculating an intrinsic similarity value for each list; c) calculating coincidence values for each list for each channel with respect to the lists for all other channels; and d) combining the intrinsic similarity and coincidence values for each list to form a total value for each list, and using the pattern candidates in the lists with the highest total value in each channel as recognized note patterns in the channel.
