Looking for Freesound Datasets ?
You are actually at the right place! Freesound Datasets is now called:
Explore, download and contribute to our datasets
The FSD is a large-scale, general-purpose dataset composed of Freesound content organised by the AudioSet Ontology
... more to come!
Our vision ...
The datasets creation process should be as transparent
as possible since data science results heavily depend on it
Data should be released under open licenses to
facilitate its distribution and help reproducible research
Datasets should be dynamic in the sense that
they can evolve over time in quality and quantity
... and our plan!
We leverage Freesound (>370k sounds) as a
source of open audio content for creating datasets
We rely on the community to sustainably crowdsource high-quality
sound annotations and to improve our platform workflows
Builds and maintains datasets following the outlined principles of
transparency, openness, dynamic character, and sustainability
