Landmark-based audio fingerprinting.
Landmark-based audio fingerprinting. Create a new fingerprint dbase with "new", append new files to an existing database with "add", or identify noisy query excerpts with "match". "precompute" writes a *.fpt file under precompdir with precomputed fingerprint for each input wav file. "merge" combines previously-created databases into an existing database; "newmerge" combines existing databases to create a new one. Usage: audfprint (new | add | match | precompute | merge | newmerge | list | remove) [options] [<file>]...

audfprint require some packages You can install them with.
pip install -r requirements.txt
This version uses
ffmpeg to read input files. You must have a working
ffmpeg binary in your path (try
ffmpeg -V at the command prompt).
Based on Matlab prototype, http://www.ee.columbia.edu/~dpwe/resources/matlab/audfprint/ . This python code will actually read and use databases created by the Matlab code (version 0.90 upwards).
Build a database of fingerprints from a set of reference audio files:
> python audfprint.py new --dbase fpdbase.pklz Nine_Lives/0*.mp3 Wed Sep 10 10:52:18 2014 ingesting #0:Nine_Lives/01-Nine_Lives.mp3 ... Wed Sep 10 10:52:20 2014 ingesting #1:Nine_Lives/02-Falling_In_Love.mp3 ... Wed Sep 10 10:52:22 2014 ingesting #2:Nine_Lives/03-Hole_In_My_Soul.mp3 ...

Wed Sep 10 10:52:35 2014 ingesting #7:Nine_Lives/08-The_Farm.mp3 ... Wed Sep 10 10:52:37 2014 ingesting #8:Nine_Lives/09-Crash.mp3 ... Added 63241 hashes (24.8 hashes/sec) Processed 9 files (2547.3 s total dur) in 21.6 s sec = 0.008 x RT Saved fprints for 9 files ( 63241 hashes) to fpdbase.pklz
Add more reference tracks to an existing database:
> python audfprint.py add --dbase fpdbase.pklz Nine_Lives/1*.mp3 Read fprints for 9 files ( 63241 hashes) from fpdbase.pklz Wed Sep 10 10:53:14 2014 ingesting #0:Nine_Lives/10-Kiss_Your_Past_Good-bye.mp3 ... Wed Sep 10 10:53:16 2014 ingesting #1:Nine_Lives/11-Pink.mp3 ... Wed Sep 10 10:53:18 2014 ingesting #2:Nine_Lives/12-Attitude_Adjustment.mp3 ... Wed Sep 10 10:53:20 2014 ingesting #3:Nine_Lives/13-Fallen_Angels.mp3 ... Added 27067 hashes (22.0 hashes/sec) Processed 4 files (1228.6 s total dur) in 13.0 s sec = 0.011 x RT Saved fprints for 13 files ( 90308 hashes) to fpdbase.pklz
Match a fragment recorded of music playing in the background against the database:
> python audfprint.py match --dbase fpdbase.pklz query.mp3 Read fprints for 13 files ( 90308 hashes) from fpdbase.pklz Analyzed query.mp3 of 5.573 s to 204 hashes Matched query.mp3 5.573 sec 204 raw hashes as Nine_Lives/05-Full_Circle.mp3 at 50.085 s with 8 of 9 hashes Processed 1 files (5.8 s total dur) in 2.6 s sec = 0.443 x RT
The query contained audio from
Nine_Lives/05-Full_Circle.mp3 starting at 50.085 sec into the track. There were a total of 17 landmark hashes shared between the query and that track, and 14 of them had a consistent time offset. Generally, anything more than 5 or 6 consistently-timed matching hashes indicate a true match, and random chance will result in fewer than 1% of the raw common hashes being temporally consistent.
Merge a previously-computed database into an existing one:
> python audfprint.py merge --dbase fpdbase.pklz fpdbase0.pklz Wed Apr 8 18:31:29 2015 Reading hash table fpdbase.pklz Read fprints for 4 files ( 126989 hashes) from fpdbase.pklz Read fprints for 9 files ( 280424 hashes) from fpdbase0.pklz Saved fprints for 13 files ( 407413 hashes) to fpdbase.pklz
Merge two existing databases to create a new, third one:
> python audfprint.py newmerge --dbase fpdbase_new.pklz fpdbase.pklz fpdbase0.pklz Read fprints for 4 files ( 126989 hashes) from fpdbase.pklz Read fprints for 9 files ( 280424 hashes) from fpdbase0.pklz Saved fprints for 13 files ( 407363 hashes) to fpdbase_new.pklz
To find out not just that two files match, and not just the relative timing
between them that makes them line up, but the exact time ranges that match
in both query and reference files, use
python audfprint.py match --dbase fpdbase.pklz query.mp3 --find-time-range Sun Aug 9 18:13:54 2015 Reading hash table fpdbase.pklz Read fprints for 9 files ( 158827 hashes) from fpdbase.pklz Sun Aug 9 18:13:57 2015 Analyzed #0 query.mp3 of 5.619 s to 928 hashes Matched 3.6 s starting at 0.8 s in query.mp3 to time 50.9 s in Nine_Lives/05-Full_Circle.mp3 with 12 of 39 common hashes at rank 0 Processed 1 files (5.8 s total dur) in 2.6 s sec = 0.451 x RT
Notice how the message includes the precise duration and time points
in both query and reference item spanning the matches. Because a
single spurious match elsewhere in the file can cause misleading
results, these times are calculated after discarding a small number of
the earliest and latest matches; this proportion is set by
--time-quantile which is 0.01 by default (1% of matches ignored at
beginning and end of match region when calculating match time range).
The fingerprint database records 2^20 (~1M) distinct fingerprints, with (by default) 100 entries for each fingerprint bucket. When the bucket fills, track entries are dropped at random; since matching depends only on making a minimum number of matches, but no particular match, dropping some of the more popular ones does not prevent matching. The Matlab version has been successfully used for databases of 100k+ tracks. Reducing the hash density (
--density) leads to smaller reference database size, and the capacity to record more reference items before buckets begin to fill; a density of 7.0 works well.
Times (in units of 256 samples, i.e., 23 ms at the default 11kHz sampling rate) are stored in the bottom 14 bits of each database entry, meaning that times larger than 2^14*0.023 = 380 sec, or about 6 mins, are aliased. If you want to correctly identify time offsets in tracks longer than this, you need to use a larger
--maxtimebits 16 increases the time range to 65,536 frames, or about 25 minutes at 11 kHz. The trade-off is that the remaining bits in each 32 bit entry (i.e., 18 bits for the default 14 bit times) are used to store the track ID. Thus, by default, the database can only remember 2^18 = 262k tracks; using a larger
--maxtimebits will reduce this; similarly, you can increase the number of distinct tracks by reducing
--maxtimebits, which doesn't prevent matching tracks, but progressively reduces discrimination as the number of distinct time slots reduces (and can make the reported time offsets, and time ranges for
--find-time-ranges, completely wrong for longer tracks).
