This paper describes a new technique for recognizing musical instruments in polyphonic music. Because the conventional framework for musical instrument recognition in polyphonic music had to estimate the onset time and fundamental frequency (F0) of each note, instrument recognition strictly suffered from errors of onset detection and F0 estimation. Unlike such a note-based processing framework, our technique calculates the temporal trajectory of instrument existence probabilities for every possible F0, and the results are visualized with a spectrogram-like graphical representation called instrogram. The instrument existence probability is defined as the product of a nonspecific instrument existence probability calculated using PreFEst and a conditional instrument existence probability calculated using the hidden Markov model. Experimental results show that the obtained instrograms reflect the actual instrumentations and facilitate instrument recognition
