Domestic Environment Sound Event Detection (DESED).
This dataset is the synthetic part of the DESED dataset. It allows creating mixtures of isolated sounds and backgrounds.
There is the material to:
If you want to generate new audio mixtures yourself from the original files.
If you simply want the evaluation synthetic dataset used in DCASE 2019 task 4.
The mixtures are generated using Scaper (https://github.com/justinsalamon/scaper) .
* Background files are extracted from SINS , MUSAN  or Youtube and have been selected because they contain a very low amount of our sound event classes.
* Foreground files are extracted from Freesound  and manually verified to check the quality and segmented to remove silences.
