    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;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.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;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.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;musdb18-hq&lt;/em&gt; contains two folders, a folder with a training set: &amp;ldquo;train&amp;rdquo;, composed of 100 songs, and a folder with a test set: &amp;ldquo;test&amp;rdquo;, composed of 50 songs. Supervised approaches should be trained on the training set and tested on both sets.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;All files from the &lt;em&gt;musdb18-hq&lt;/em&gt; dataset are saved as uncompressed wav files. Within each track folder, the user finds&lt;/p&gt;


&lt;p&gt;All signals are stereophonic and encoded at 44.1kHz.&lt;/p&gt;
