Stereo Audio Source Separation Evaluation Campaign
Description of the data
The development data are generated from four sets of source signals with 10 s duration sampled at 16 kHz:
Instantaneous mixtures are all obtained using the same mixing matrix with positive coefficients. Only the first three columns are used for music mixtures.
Synthetic convolutive mixtures and live recordings are obtained for a meeting room of 250 ms reverberation time using omnidirectional microphones with two different spacings: 5 cm and 1 m. The positions of the sources and the microphones are illustrated below. The three loudspeakers used for music mixtures are those numbered 1, 2, 3 for synthetic convolutive mixtures, 1, 3, 4 for live recordings of non-percussive music and 1, 2, 4 for live recordings of music including drums.
File naming convention
The development data consist of Matlab MAT-files and WAV audio files, that can be imported in Matlab using the commands load and wavread respectively. These files are named as follows:
