What It Does

We combined audio data with accelerometer data from a tapping foot to automatically transcribe music.

Beat Synchronization

OverTone captures spikes in upward acceleration from a phone accelerometer on the user's foot to identify taps.

Fourier Analysis

OverTone applies a short-term Fourier transform to audio data to determine the most represented pitch in each beat.

Pitch Discretization

OverTone maps each frequency to the closest musical note, which can then be easily visualized as sheet music.

Who It's For

OverTone is a creative tool for musicians and composers.

How It Works

OverTone applies motion analysis, frequency analysis,
and advanced filtering algorithms to transcribe music.

Testing and Validation

OverTone has been tested on seven different musical instruments, including the human voice.
