Abstract
Songs2See is a music game developed based on pitch detection, sound separation, music transcription, interface development and audio analysis technologies. While keeping the entertainment and excitement of normal video games, Songs2See provides the users with a practice tool that makes the process of learning to play a musical instrument, a more enjoyable and engaging one. The two key features of this application are: 1. The use of real musical instruments instead of game controllers, 2. The possibility to create your own musical exercise content for the game. Songs2See is composed of two main applications: the Music Game used at practice time and the Music Editor used to create content for the game out of normal audio tracks.
During the demo session, the main features and options of both applications will be explained. We will show how the game works with different musical instruments, the practice modes supported, the learning aids included, i.e., fingerings, score view, piano roll view, and the analysis features available in the Music Editor.
