Creation of new datasets for monophonic, melody, bass and multi-f0 pitch tracking in collaboration with NYU

Creation of new datasets for monophonic, melody, bass and multi-f0 pitch tracking in collaboration with NYU

13.11.2018

Five new(ish) datasets for research on monophonic, melody, bass and multi-f0 pitch tracking have been released as part of the ISMIR 2017 publication An analysis/synthesis framework for automatic f0 annotation of multitrack datasets, J. Salamon, R. M. Bittner, J. Bonada, J. J. Bosch, E. Gómez, and J. P. Bello. In 18th International Society for Music Information Retrieval Conference, Suzhou, China, Oct. 2017. A collaborative work between the MTG (Universitat Pompeu Fabra) and MARL (New York University).

The datasets are intended for research on monophonic, melody, bass, and multiple f0 estimation (pitch tracking), and include:

 

MDB-melody-synth
65 songs from the MedleyDB dataset in which the melody track has been resynthesized to obtain a perfect melody f0 annotation using the analysis/synthesis method described in the paper.

 

MDB-bass-synth
71 songs from the MedleyDB dataset in which the bass track has been resynthesized to obtain a perfect bass f0 annotation using the analysis/synthesis method described in the paper.

 

MDB-mf0-synth
85 songs from the MedleyDB dataset in which polyphonic pitched instruments (such as piano and guitar) have been removed and all monophonic pitched instruments (such as bass and voice) have been resynthesized to obtain perfect f0 annotations using the analysis/synthesis method described in the paper.

 

MDB-stem-synth
230 solo stems (tracks) from the MedleyDB dataset spanning a variety of musical instruments and voices, which have been resynthesized to obtain a perfect f0 annotation using the analysis/synthesis method described in the paper.

 

Bach10-mf0-synth
10 classical music pieces (four-part J.S. Bach chorales) from the Bach10 dataset where each instrument (bassoon, clarinet, saxophone and violin) has been resynthesized to obtain perfect f0 annotations using the analysis/synthesis method described in the paper.
