We present a dynamic graphical model (DGM) model for automatedmulti-instrument musical transcription. By multi-instrumenttranscription, we mean a system capable of listening to a recordingin which two or more instruments are playing, and identifying boththe notes that were played and the instruments that played them.Our transcription system models two musical instruments, eachcapable of playing at most one note at a time. We present resultsfor two-instrument transcription on piano and violin sounds.
