Final year computer science engineering project idea: Musical Notes Plotter

Here's a project idea our final year CS/IT engineers can work on. I'm not sure if such a software exists. If it does, there is no harm in creating a better one [​IMG] : -

How about creating a software that would receive the notes from line-in & plot the notes on staff sheet or tab the notes (or do both 😉 ). That is, I'd plug in my guitar to my computer and play the notes. The software would go on creating the tabs in real time 😀

Extend it to cover as many instruments as you can!

Not very difficult to do; but an interesting project for sure! I hope I've explained the basic idea of the project. If you need help in understanding the concept, post your response here. I'll be happy to help you with some creative thinking 😎

well it is indeed a nice concept but i know nothing about - "line-in & plot the notes on staff sheet or tab the notes".
the reson for me to tel u this is i'm in search of a project for my engineering in CSc. final year. & i would prefer something web based. any thought??

Cool. You'll need some research in sound acquisition, and determine the frequency of each notes. Once that is done, the rest should be straightforward 😀

Sound acquisition and processing needs some basic filter library (siglib DSP library should be good).

Hi, this is Ashu....
I m IT final yr student.
I got these project ideas from net:
Discussion Forum Website
Peer to Peer File sharing
Bulk SMS Application

Can anybody give me any ideas about any of these???
U can take these ideas for ur project too!!!
Why use pressure transducer to make corresponding electrical signal

Hi,

I just registered with crazy engineers.I'am a second year student doing my Software engineering degree. I have to do a project as my final year project in the next semester. I love Music and i want to do something related to music. Furthermore i want to make it something related to a search engine. Do you have any ideas? Please be kind enough to help me. I would be glad if you could advice me on this.

Thank you.

Hi Welcome to CE family

On which Platform you want to do your project..
Here are some idea
1) music library
2) A simple web crawler

Following are the suggested steps -

1. Understand the idea clearly and have a knowledge of how musical notes are written [SimpleTabs or Staff]
2. Decide on the technology which you are comfortable with that will let you interact with the hardware for this project.
3. Write algorithm, make block diagrams and try to visualize the software.
4. Start coding, post the problems you face while working on the project here on CE.

Does this answer your question?

hey..i was thinking exactly the same..but for piano.
can you please give me more details of how to initiate it..what layout is used?which programming language could be better?
i am doing BE in IT.please do reply.
thank you.

Super Idea Dear "K". How about My offering on this-->

" Musical Tone recognition and Conversion to notes: An application for Music Compression"

When you play the music, the system recognizes it , some signal processing extracts the Tabs and Notes and store them in printable text format. When you give this as input, system plays them back.

I implemented this project as my sixth semester mini project way back in the year 2000. Got 100 for that. Did many many project but, it is still hot in my memory. I used VC++ back then.. And did this with Sitar with one of my batchmate Agniswar Majumdar who was ( may still be) an Extraordinary Sitar player. Very Nice Idea Dear K.

i liked your idea of converting musical notes to tabs...so i decided to do that as my main project...

could u brief me what to do, where to start and what all things needed? i just need a base... can u pls help...

i did some thinking and got up with a method...But one prob...How can we determine which string is played when multiple strings are played? Here i am trying to create a tab...so i need the exact location where we should put our fingers in each string... is there any way to distinguish each notes when multiple strings are played?
Pls clear my doubts....one solution is to put additional sensors in the guitar..but it is a crude method...is there any way to extract the information from the frequency distribution or something?

I merged your post with ongoing discussion on the topic.

I'd like you to come up with ways to go about it but I can answer the questions you've asked. When you're playing multiple strings at a time (chords, for example) then each chord would be distinctly recognized by the frequency. I know it's possible because Mac's inbuilt Garage Band and any Digital Effects processor is able to recognize chords accurately. You can then determine which shape has been used based on the tone. You could first define the standard "E" tuning and create presets for different chord patterns.

For the finger positions, I think frequency analysis should provide enough data to determine it.

Ahsan Salim • Dec 3, 2011
how exactly is it possible to identify finger position from a chord? we get an overlapped sound when playing multiple strings and the resulting sound is the note of the chord...we cant know which all strings were used to produce the resulting sound(The classical KnapSack problem)...pls correct me if i am wrong...

please suggest an audio library that i can use....



ok i decided to use Bass as my audio library
