Yea, Rova, there is. I mean unless you have an algorithm programmed that can pass the Turing test...... Humans can do a lot of things computers cannot currently....

I mean you give me a "one size fits all" beat detection algorithm, and I can look at the code, and write something that a human would still be able to find the beat in, that your code would not.... Kurzweil says we might have a box that could fool you into thinking it was a human within 20 years, so this statement should be taken with a grain of temporal proximity.

Anyway, snares come though on bass commonly in programs like Milkdrop because the FFT doesn't have enough bands and reads false positives in the bass. This even happens when you have thousands of bands in an FFT... I've even seen 4096 bands read false positives.
