MUSDB18-HQ - an uncompressed version of MUSDB18

Rafii, Zafar; Liutkus, Antoine; Stöter, Fabian-Robert; Mimilakis, Stylianos Ioannis; Bittner, Rachel

MUSDB18-HQ is the uncompressed version of the MUSDB18 dataset. It consists of a total of 150 full-track songs of different styles and includes both the stereo mixtures and the original sources, divided between a training subset and a test subset.

Its purpose is to serve as a reference database for the design and the evaluation of source separation algorithms. The objective of such signal processing methods is to estimate one or more sources from a set of mixtures, e.g. for karaoke applications. It has been used as the official dataset in the professionally-produced music recordings task for SiSEC 2018, which is the international campaign for the evaluation of source separation algorithms.

musdb18-hq contains two folders, a folder with a training set: “train”, composed of 100 songs, and a folder with a test set: “test”, composed of 50 songs. Supervised approaches should be trained on the training set and tested on both sets.

All files from the musdb18-hq dataset are saved as uncompressed wav files. Within each track folder, the user finds

  • mixture.wav
  • drums.wav
  • bass.wav,
  • other.wav,
  • vocals.wav

All signals are stereophonic and encoded at 44.1kHz.
