Sónar+D CCCB 2020 – Essentia.js Workshop

11 April, 2022

I had the opportunity to present a workshop in Sónar+D CCCB 2020 about how to use Essentia.js to automatically detect quality problems in a music collection. Essentia.js is the port into web technologies of the C++ open-source library Essentia developed and maintained by the Music Technology Group (MTG) of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona.

In general, producers, djs, and audio engineers have to manually control if the audios they work with have any issues. With this workshop, Sonosuite will show how the open-source Essentia library can help detect automatically any problems that might exist in the audio tracks. They will also learn how to control the final results of their work to adequately distribute it to all major streaming platforms and digital shops.
