  "abstract": "<p>The Mridangam Stroke dataset is a collection of 6977 audio examples of individual strokes of the Mridangam in various tonics. The dataset comprises of 10 different strokes played on Mridangams with 6 different tonic values.</p>\n\n<p>This is an updated version of the dataset, as the original version 1.0 presents some silent or wrong annotated tracks.</p>\n\n<p><strong>Audio content</strong></p>\n\n<p>The dataset provides audio examples for each of the strokes. There are six different tonics and ten different stroke labels.</p>\n\n<p>The audio examples were recorded from a professional Carnatic percussionist in a semi-anechoic studio conditions by Akshay Anantapadmanabhan using SM-58 microphones and an H4n ZOOM recorder. The audio was&nbsp;sampled at 44.1 kHz and stored as 16 bit wav files. The dataset can be used for training models for each Mridangam stroke.&nbsp;</p>\n\n<p><strong>Metadata</strong></p>\n\n<p>The whole dataset is organized by the tonic, into 6 packs. Each audio file is named as,&nbsp;</p>\n\n<pre><code>&lt;StrokeName&gt;_&lt;Tonic&gt;_&lt;InstanceNumber&gt;.wav\n&lt;Tonic&gt; = {B, C, Csh, D, Dsh, E}\n&lt;StrokeName&gt; = {Bheem, Cha, Dheem, Dhin, Num, Ta, Tha, Tham, Thi, Thom}</code></pre>\n\n<p><strong>Using this dataset</strong></p>\n\n<p>A detailed description of the Mridangam and its strokes can be found in the following paper. A part of the dataset was used in the paper. Please cite it if you use the dataset in your work.</p>\n\n<blockquote>\n<p>Akshay Anantapadmanabhan, Ashwin Bellur, Hema A.
