MedleyDB: A Multitrack Dataset for Annotation-Intensive MIR Research
TLDR
The dataset MedleyDB, a dataset of annotated, royaltyfree multitrack recordings, is shown to be considerably more challenging than the current test sets used in the MIREX evaluation campaign, thus opening new research avenues in melody extraction research.
Sonic visualiser: an open source application for viewing, analysing, and annotating music audio files
TLDR
Sonic Visualiser is a friendly and flexible end-user desktop application for analysis, visualisation, and annotation of music audio files that has a user interface that resembles familiar audio editing applications, a set of useful standard visualisation facilities, and support for a plugin format for additional automated analysis methods.
Computer-aided Melody Note Transcription Using the Tony Software: Accuracy and Efficiency
TLDR
Tony, a software tool for the interactive annotation of melodies from monophonic audio recordings, is presented, and it is shown that Tony’s built in automatic note transcription method compares favourably with existing tools.
Linked Data and You: Bringing Music Research Software into the Semantic Web
TLDR
The extent to which the OMRAS2 tools and frameworks can assist in research and facilitate distributed work among audio and music researchers is assessed, and further steps to improve collaborative efforts in music informatics using the Semantic Web are motivated.
The Sonic Visualiser: A Visualisation Platform for Semantic Descriptors from Musical Signals
TLDR
Some basic principles and functionalities of Sonic Visualiser are described, which embodies a number of concepts which are intended to improve interaction with audio data and features, most notably with respect to the representation of time-synchronous information.

This submission offers for evaluation several audio feature extraction plugins in Vamp format that were also submitted to the 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 editions of MIREX.
Sound Software: Towards software reuse in audio and music research
TLDR
The Sound Software project is described, an effort to support software development practice in the UK audio and music research community, and some recommendations for research groups seeking to improve their own researchers' software practice are made.
Piper: Audio Feature Extraction in Browser and Mobile Applications
TLDR
This talk demonstrates several use-cases for Piper, including an mobile application using Piper modules to analyse recordings; a web service for remote feature extraction; and the refactoring of an existing desktop application to communicate with a Piper service using a simple IPC mechanism.
