SOURCE: a Freesound Community Music Sampler

Frederic Font
2021 Audio Mostly 2021  
This paper describes the architecture of SOURCE and the different ways in which it interacts with Freesound.  ...  SOURCE is an open-source hardware music sampler powered by Freesound's collection of near 500k Creative Commons sounds contributed by a community of thousands of people around the world.  ...  Also, the main application logic of the glue app is implemented in this process, including the communication with Freesound.  ...

Community Structure in Audio Clip Sharing

Gerard Roma, Perfecto Herrera
2010 2010 International Conference on Intelligent Networking and Collaborative Systems  
The properties of these networks as well as their community structure are analyzed using data from Freesound, a very popular audio clip sharing site. Both are characterized as "small worlds".  ...  The component structure of the file downloading network provides a general overview of the user community which resembles the structure of the world wide web.  ...  The motivations of users are often related to social aspects of sharing sounds online.  ...

Towards scalable activity recognition

Long-Van Nguyen-Dinh, Ulf Blanke, Gerhard Tröster
2013 Proceedings of the 12th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Multimedia - MUM '13  
In the active learning scheme, the crowd-sourced model can reach the performance of the supervised model by requesting labels of 0.7% of user data only.  ...  An alternative approach is mining existing online crowd-sourced repositories for open-ended, free annotated training data.  ...  The authors would like to thank Mirco Rossi (ETH Zurich) for useful comments. This work has been supported by the Swiss Hasler Foundation project Smart-DAYS.  ...

Algorithms and representations for supporting online music creation with large-scale audio databases

Gerard Roma, Xavier Serra
2015 Zenodo  
This work has been developed in the context of Freesound, a large-scale, community-driven database of audio recordings shared under Creative Commons (CC) licenses.  ...  The goal of this dissertation is to provide and evaluate algorithms and representations for interacting with large audio databases that facilitate music creation by online communities.  ...  Finally, we have analyzed the structure of online communities currently sharing audio files.  ...

Automatic Classication of Musical Sounds in the context of Freesound

Nuno Hespanhol, Frederic Font, Xavier Serra
2014 Zenodo  
Freesound.org is an online sound database with over 200.000 sounds now, which everyday serves the purpose of sound designers, composers and creative artists, providing them with Creative Commons license  ...  The first level consists of the classes Speech, Sound Effects, Soundscape, Mu- sic and Instrument.  ...  Most of these information is provided by users of online communities that tag these resources and contribute to the gathering/generation of this knowledge, which, in the case of the tags, is called folksonomy  ...

Learning Sound Event Classifiers from Web Audio with Noisy Labels [article]

Eduardo Fonseca, Manoj Plakal, Daniel P. W. Ellis, Frederic Font, Xavier Favory, Xavier Serra
2019 arXiv   pre-print
We characterize the label noise empirically, and provide a CNN baseline system.  ...  There is, however, little research into the impact of these errors.  ...  We thank Zhilu Zhang of Cornell University for his assistance with the Lq loss, and we thank everyone who contributed to FSDnoisy18k with annotations, especially Mercedes Collado.  ...

Query-by-Example Model Creation Methodology in Freesound

Konstantinos Dimitriou, Xavier Serra, Frederic Font
2014 Zenodo  
In this thesis we investigate whether certain groups of features relate to the retrieval quality of Freesound. Freesound is an online collaborative audio database.  ...  Freesound library is expanded everyday, as more users share their sounds, adding to the corpus of existing sounds.  ...  differences among the users of Freesound.  ...

Luca Maria Aiello, Rossano Schifanella, Daniele Quercia, Francesco Aletta
2016 Royal Society Open Science  
We thank the Barcelona City Council for making the noise pollution data available. References  ...  Because the words of the other online repository considerably overlapped with Freesound's (67% Favoritesounds tags are also in Freesound), we worked only with Freesound (to ensure effective coverage) and  ...  Second, smell words were derived from smellwalks (as no other source was available), whereas sound words were derived from the online platform of Freesound.  ...

Improving the description of instrumental sounds by using ontologies and automatic content analysis

Carlos Vaquero, Xavier Serra, Frederic Font
2012 Zenodo  
Using an ontology as the basis of the classification tags applied to sounds, may not only ease the browsing of sounds through the collection, but also help to define common definitions within the community  ...  from one user to another, as well as the types of sounds associated to them.  ...  Vocabulary presence: According to Stanoevska-Slabeva, "a community can be characterized by the vocabulary that is shared among its members (Stanoevska-Slabeva, 2002)".  ...
