Motivated by the observation that one of the biggest problems
in automatic singing voice detection is the confusion of
vocals with other pitch-continuous and pitch-varying instruments,
we propose a set of three new audio features designed
to reduce the amount of false vocal detections. This is borne
out in comparative experiments with three different musical
corpora. The resulting singing voice detector appears to be
at least on par with more complex state-of-the-art methods.
New features and classifier are very light-weight and in principle
suitable for on-line use.
