You Are Giants!
Back in November 2017 I had asked you to help with tapping to EDM. Many of you followed the call and earned beaTunes licenses (please don't tap anymore, data collection is over). Thanks again for that!! Since then I have analyzed the submitted data and created new annotations for the GiantSteps tempo dataset originally created by Knees et al.
Long story short:
- It appears that a substantial part of the original annotations were wrong (almost 9%).
- All user submitted data incl. new derived tempo annotations can be found here (under "Datasets").
- The new annotations will be used as one ground-truth for this year's MIREX Audio Tempo Estimation task.
The full paper (link below) describing the collected data will officially be published at this year's ISMIR in Paris—if you're attending, please come and chat with me!
