Piano Player Rolls Transcribed via DSP

Piano Player Rolls Transcribed via DSP

Clever application of DSP!

Zulko extracts notes from a youtube video of a player piano!  He talks you through every step of Python to pull it off. 

BTW, this video tours a factory where rolls for player pianos are made!  It shows a piano player entering notes one step at a time, some classic computers used in the process and many other fascinating details!

Once You Get Through That

I've been collecting a whole playlist of youtube videos that help explain Digital Signal Processing, with a particular slant on learning how to make electronic music instruments, so check them out.
