Abstract : Blind source separation usually obtains limited performance on real and polyphonic music signals. To overcome these limitations, it is common to rely on prior knowledge under the form of side information as in Informed Source Separation or on machine learning paradigms applied on a training database. In the context of source separation based on factorization models such as the Non-negative Matrix Factorization, this supervision can be introduced by learning specific dictionaries. However, due to the large diversity of musical signals it is not easy to build sufficiently compact and precise dictionaries that will well characterize the large array of audio sources. In this paper, we argue that it is relevant to construct genre-specific dictionaries. Indeed, we show on a task of harmonic-percussive source separation that the dictionaries built on genre-specific training subsets yield better performances than cross-genre dictionaries.
