The Sound and Music Analysis (SoMA) Group in the Digital Media Technology Laboratory (DMT Lab) has emerged at the intersection of electronic engineering, computer and data science and computational musicology.

Automatic Drum Transcription

Automatic Drum Transcription

Automatic music transcription (AMT) is the annotation of pitch and duration information from acoustic signals, and is crucial to several fields of study (e.g., musicology, information retrieval).

Check out our automatic drum transcription (ADT) library and related reserach about improving generalisability and peak peaking in ADT systems.

Intelligent Music Production and Automated Music Transformations

Intelligent Music Production and Automated Music Transformations

Intelligent music production and automated audio transformations intend to simplify complex music production processes, making them more accessible, thus bridging the gap between musicians and technology.

Example applications include content-aware audio effects, synthesiser and audio effect preset recommendation, virtual music assistants and automatic remixing.

Computational Musicology

Computational Musicology

Computational analysis of folk music and traditional instrumentation.

Related research includes improvement of onset detection in Irish traditional music (ITM) using neural networks and automated player recognition for traditional Irish flute recordings.
