- pcp (vector_real) - the pitch class profile from which to detect the chord
- chords (string) - the resulting chords, from A to G
- strength (real) - the strength of the chord
- hopSize (integer ∈ (0, ∞), default = 2048) :
- the hop size with which the input PCPs were computed
- sampleRate (real ∈ (0, ∞), default = 44100) :
- the sampling rate of the audio signal [Hz]
- windowSize (real ∈ (0, ∞), default = 2) :
- the size of the window on which to estimate the chords [s]
This algorithm estimates chords given an input sequence of harmonic pitch class profiles (HPCPs). It finds the best matching major or minor triad and outputs the result as a string (e.g. A#, Bm, G#m, C). This algorithm uses the Sharp versions of each Flatted note (i.e. Bb -> A#).
- The algorithm assumes that the sequence of the input HPCP frames has been computed with framesize = 2*hopsize
- The algorithm estimates a sequence of chord values corresponding to the input HPCP frames (one chord value for each frame, estimated using a temporal window of HPCPs centered at that frame).
Quality: experimental (prone to errors, algorithm needs improvement)
