Thanks -- I finally found the tracking sub-directory in the docs.

Yes, that was a issue. For some reason the tracking example was removed from
the version while it was in I think that must have been
done by mistake as that particular example turned out to be very useful for
a lot of people. Good thing it's back now. I can understand how that would
lead to confusion.

You may want to also look into Ge and Rebecca's work with "smelt" and the
paper on the analysis stuff.

Typically I find that you'll end up with a cross between science and gut
feeling about the particular kind of signal you are interested in tracking.
Whistling and flutes are relatively easy while -for example- tracking pitch
on voices is hard. Guitar notes (not chords) are easy, aside from the attack
(which you can more or less forget about).

Good luck!
