This paper describes an algorithm, which performs monophonic music transcription. A pitch tracker calculates the fundamental frequency of the signal from the autocorrelation function. A continuity-restoration block takes the extracted pitch and determines the score corresponding to the original performance. The signal envelope analysis completes the transcription system, calculating attack-sustain-decay-release times, which improves the synthesis process. Attention is also paid to the extraction of timbre and wavetable synthesis.
