Pitch estimation of drums


Junior Member
Hi, I'm writing my master thesis and currently on the way of developing a method to estimate pitch of mainly Tom-Tom drums.
Right now I need the help of the world to get an data on how we perceive the pitch of different drum samples.

Therefore I have constructed a user test, which is web-based and requires a computer and headphones. It's a tough challenge and quite demanding as you will have to listen to sinusoidal tones.

Even if you don't have time or energy to estimate all samples, I would appreciate all the help I can get. All the data will be used to improve our ways of fine tuning and customizing drum sound in the future.


Cheers Thomas

Thank you all! We're steadily going upwards in the test-count, I greatly appreciate the response from this forum! I'll keep the test up for at least a couple of weeks to catch everyone who are willing to sacrifice their time for the sake of science!
