[AUDIO] IRMAS: A dataset for instrument recognition in musical audio signals
List of results published directly linked with the projects co-funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness under the María de Maeztu Units of Excellence Program (MDM-2015-0502).
The record for each publication will include access to postprints (following the Open Access policy of the program), as well as datasets and software used. Ongoing work with UPF Library and Informatics will improve the interface and automation of the retrieval of this information soon.
Back [AUDIO] IRMAS: A dataset for instrument recognition in musical audio signals
This dataset includes musical audio excerpts with annotations of the predominant instrument(s) present. It was used for the evaluation in the following article:
Bosch, J. J., Janer, J., Fuhrmann, F., & Herrera, P. “A Comparison of Sound Segregation Techniques for Predominant Instrument Recognition in Musical Audio Signals”, in Proc. ISMIR (pp. 559-564), 2012
IRMAS is intended to be used for training and testing methods for the automatic recognition of predominant instruments in musical audio. The instruments considered are: cello, clarinet, flute, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, organ, piano, saxophone, trumpet, violin, and human singing voice. This dataset is derived from the one compiled by Ferdinand Fuhrmann in his PhD thesis, with the difference that we provide audio data in stereo format, the annotations in the testing dataset are limited to specific pitched instruments, and there is a different amount and lenght of excerpts.
