We have just released SymbTr v2.4. SymbTr is currently the biggest machine readable collection of Turkish makam music. The latest version of the SymbTr collection consists of 2200 pieces from 155 makams, 88 usuls, 56 forms, about 865.000 musical notes and 80 hours nominal playback time. You can download the release from: https://github.com/MTG/ SymbTr/releases/tag/v2.4
Since the last announcement (SymbTr v2.2), we have curated and validated the metadata (artists, makam attributes etc. in SymbTr v2.3) and the contents (notes, measure boundaries, phrases etc. in SymbTr v2.4) of the scores. You can refer to the Changelog for a more detailed list of changes.
Additionally, we are releasing the first versions of several tools to process SymbTr scores.
- Symbtr Data Extractor: Python tools for extracting relevant data (and metadata) from SymbTr scores
- MusicXML Converter: Tools to generate MusicXML scores from SymbTr-txt and mu2 files
- Adaptive Tuning: Tools for adaptive tuning and synthesis of SymbTr scores in MusicXML format
- Symbolic Phrase Segmentation: Automatic phrase segmentation of SymbTr scores (alpha release)
