    "Find Similar Sounds" not working?


    I wonder why clicking on "find similar sounds" at one of my samples
    http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=11731

    does not bring up the other ones of that pack
    (f.e. http://freesound.iua.upf.edu/samplesViewSingle.php?id=11759)
    allthough they got exactly the same tags! Shouldn't samples with similar Tags show up??

    Greetings

    similar sounds uses algorithms to figure out if two sounds sound alike...
    got nothing to dow tih tags or descriptions wink

    The tech used to create the similarity search is quite complex. But bram knows a lot more about that ofcourse. Its called Audioclas (http://audioclas.iua.upf.edu/documents.shtml) and was developed by the university that developed this site and funds it too. (http://www.iua.upf.es/mtg/)

    @Bram,

    Audioclas website seems defunct now. Is the code used by freesound opensource?

    Edit: Found another webpage describing the project http://www.mtg.upf.edu/projects/audioclas

    Actually, Audioclas has been replaced a long time ago by this awesome stuff:
