I am doing research on digital audio coding algorithms and their performance with musical genres. In order to carry out this study thoroughly, what musical database do you recommend? I haver heard of RWC Music Database (http://staff.aist.go.jp/m.goto/RWC-MDB/), another one is Marsyas (http://marsyas.info/download/data_sets). Please, which one do you recommend and why?
Thank you very much in advance.
