In this paper, a novel method for pitch estimation of stereophonic mixtures is presented, and it is investigated how the performance is affected by the pan parameters of the individual signals of the mixture. The method is based on a signal model that takes into account a stereophonic mixture created by mixing multiple individual channels with different pan parameters, and is hence suited for use in automatic music transcription, source separation and classification systems. Panning is done using both amplitude differences and delays. The performance of the estimator is compared to one single-channel, two multi-channel and one multi-pitch estimator using synthetic and real signals. Experiments show that the proposed method is able to correctly estimate the pitches of a mixture of three real signals when they are separated by more than 25 degrees.
