I'm faced with a challenging problem involving rhythm detection for brass and wind instruments.
If a saxophone (or similar instrument) plays four quarter notes continuously of the same pitch (let's say C), what do you think would be the best way to detect the start of each note— specifically if these notes are played smoothly with no clear separation between them?
When the notes are clearly articulated (with a silence between them) I have been using sigmund~'s notes parameter to detect the attacks, but when the note is a continuous stream with a very subtle attack this does not work so well.
I have also experimented with bonk~ but I can't seem to have any luck setting the parameters to ensure that it doesn't give "too much" output and detect attacks that aren't there or are coming from different sound sources.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
