A tentative typology of audio source separation tasks


We propose a preliminary step towards the construction of a global evaluation framework for Blind Audio Source Separation (BASS) algorithms. BASS covers many potential applications that involve a more restricted number of tasks. An algorithm may perform well on some tasks and poorly on others. Various factors affect the difficulty of each task and the criteria that should be used to assess the performance of algorithms that try to address it. Thus a typology of BASS tasks would greatly help the building of an evaluation framework. We describe some typical BASS applications and propose some qualitative criteria to evaluate separation in each case. We then list some of the tasks to be accomplished and present a possible classification scheme.
