Welcome to the Orchids user group.

This user group is devoted to the Orchids orchestration system and its users, but also on the topic of computer-aided orchestration and generic sound mixture optimization. In order to facilitate the exchange of bug reports, idea and collaborative thinking, we encourage any kind of report on errors, bad or good results, desired features, ideas, remarks and any other topic.

Please report any unsolved problem, ideas or even cool sounds to this group and we will be glad to discuss it. If you want to start using the software, please read the full documentation, which provides turnarounds to known issues:

Orchestration Criteria – Yin and MFCC

Does Orchids support Yin and MFCC, or will it ever? Otherwise what are the closest descriptors to Yin and MFCC? Finally is there a documentation explaining what these descriptors represent perceptually?

In fact the MFCC is already included in Orchids, although it is named “Mel” so you either have the temporal version (Mel) or static mean version (Mel (Mean)).
Regarding Yin, it is used as a part of the computation for the different descriptors. However, we found it makes little sense to use the “fundamental frequency” as a valid descriptor for orchestration (which is usually either multi-pitch and does not “add up” logically in mixtures)

Is it possible to compare the fundamental frequency of the solutions with the fundamental frequency of the source audio?
