The general objective of this study is to design and implement a PC-based system that will recognize musical notes generated by an acoustic guitar and produce its tablature in real-time.
The project will be a pc- based system which uses an acoustic steel stringed guitar for its sound source. It uses a microphone which obtains the sound from the guitar. The sound card of the computer will receive the sound from the guitar and serve as the digitizer to interface the guitar sound to the computer. DirectX SDK will be used for the sound card access.
