Tempo and genre are two inter-leaved aspects of music, genres are often associated to rhythm patterns which are played in specific tempo ranges.
In this paper, we focus on the Deep Rhythm system based on a harmonic representation of rhythm used as an input to a convolutional neural network.
To consider the relationships between frequency bands, we process complex-valued inputs through complex-convolutions.
We also study the joint estimation of tempo/genre using a multitask learning approach.
Finally, we study the addition of a second input convolutional branch to the system applied to a mel-spectrogram input dedicated to the timbre.
This multi-input approach allows to improve the performances for tempo and genre estimation.
