FAST SOUND FILE CHARACTERISATION METHOD

Lucille Tanquerel, Luigi Lancieri

Abstract

This article describes a fast technique of characterization of sound documents based on a statistical measure of the variation of the signal. We showed that a very limited sampling was sufficient to obtain a reasonable performance of the characteristic while being 100 times faster to calculate than a complete sampling. During preliminary tests, we carried out a first validation of our approach by highlighting a correlation of 0.7 between the human perception of the rhythm and our characteristic as well as an error of recognition lower than 5%. In this new series of tests, we show that our approach makes possible to associate to a cut file its missing half, with an error rate from approximately 30%.
