The tonalness spectrum shows the likelihood of a spectral bin being part of a tonal or non-tonal component. It is a non-binary measure based on a set of established spectral features. An easily extensible framework for the computation, selection, and combination of features is introduced. The results are evaluated and compared in two ways. First with a data set of synthetically generated signals but also with real music signals in the context of a typical MIR application.
