mirdata

common loaders for Music Information Retrieval (MIR) datasets. Find the API documentation here.

CircleCI codecov Documentation Status GitHub

This library provides tools for working with common MIR datasets, including tools for:

  • downloading datasets to a common location and format
  • validating that the files for a dataset are all present
  • loading annotation files to a common format, consistent with the format required by mir_eval
  • parsing track level metadata for detailed evaluations

Installation

To install, simply run:

pip install mirdata

Quick example

import mirdata

orchset = mirdata.initialize('orchset')
orchset.download()  # download the dataset
orchset.validate()  # validate that all the expected files are there

example_track = orchset.choice_track()  # choose a random example track
print(example_track)  # see the available data

See the documentation for more examples and the API reference.
