    In this paper, we present an efficient approach to detect and tracking the fundamental frequency (Fo) from 'wav' audio. In general, music Fo and harmonic frequency show the multiple relations; therefore frequency domain analysis can be used to track the Fo. The model includes the harmonic frequency probability analysis method and useful pre-post processing for multiple instruments. Thus, the proposed system can efficiently transcribe polyphonic music, while taking into account the probability of Fo and harmonic frequency. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed system can successful transcribe polyphonic music, achieved the quite advanced level.
