we would like to inform you that we have implemented a new resource for the
Freesound API for performing content-based queries. That means that you can
now search in the Freesound database by specifying a set of descriptor
value ranges like: "pitch between X and Y" or "spectral centroid closer to
Z". You will find the documentation here:
This new feature is still a bit buggy, so any error reporting and comments
will be more than welcome!
We have updated the python client to support this new feature (and rebuild
some other aspects of it, check the examples you will find in the code) and
api documentation (http://www.freesound.org/docs/).
Looking forward to see what you do with that new feature!
ps: check the list of hacks that were made last week in the context of the
Music Hack Day in the Sonar Festival (Barcelona). There are a few of them
using the Freesound API! (
