In this paper we focus on multi-resolution spectral analysis algorithms for music signals based on the FFT. Two previously devised efficient algorithms (efficient constant-Q transform [1] and multiresolution FFT [2]) are reviewed and compared with a new proposal based on the IIR filtering of the FFT. Apart from its simplicity, the proposed method shows to be a good compromise between design flexibility and reduced computational effort. Additionally, it was used as a part of an effective melody extraction algorithm.
