Multi-modal dataset for music genre recognition based on six different modalities for the LMD-aligned [1] and SLAC [2] datasets. Further details are provided in [3].

Descriptions of files

Link Description
LMD-aligned_Filelist.arff File list with 1575 music tracks selected from the LMD-aligned dataset [1] with tagtraum genre annotations [4] (only a subset of LMD-aligned is used, which includes only pieces for which all six modalities were accessible, and which includes only well-represented genres)
LMD-aligned_ExtractedFeatures.tar.gz Raw audio signal and model-based features extracted with AMUSE [5]
LMD-aligned_ProcessedFeatures.tar.gz Processed features: audio signal and model-based features aggregated for 4 s time frames with 2 s step size / all other features (see the table below) with the same values for all time frames
LMD-aligned_Datasets.tar.gz Training, optimization, and test datasets for 3 splits for the recognition of 5 genres in [3]
SLAC_Filelist.arff File list with 250 music tracks from the SLAC dataset [2] (genres and sub-genres are provided in the folder structure)
SLAC_ExtractedFeatures.tar.gz Raw audio signal and model-based features extracted with AMUSE [5]
SLAC_ProcessedFeatures.tar.gz Processed features: audio signal and model-based features aggregated for 4 s time frames with 2 s step size / all other features (see the table below) with the same values for all time frames
SLAC_Datasets.tar.gz Training, optimization, and test datasets for 3 splits for the recognition of 5 genres and 10 sub-genres in [3]
