Abstract

EGT (Enriched Guitar Transcription) is a real-time and automatic guitar playing transcription software. Unlike most of the automatic score transcription software, not only the , events and pitch tracking are performed, but all the main guitar playing techniques are detected as well, providing a more complete transcription of the playing. These detections are made possible thanks to the use of an hexaphonic pickup (one pickup per string) enabling a string-by-string analysis. These transcriptions can then be used in many different contexts and / or embedded in different tools in order to obtain high-level information on the instrumentalist playing. This paper will demonstrate two use cases: a complete and realtime tablature writer and a 3D neck model controlled by the detected guitar playing events.
