Deep Audio Segmenter
DAS is a method for automatically annotating song from raw audio recordings based on a deep neural network. DAS can be used with a graphical user interface, from the terminal, or from within python scripts.
If you have questions, feedback, or find bugs please raise an issue.

If you have conda already installed, make sure you have conda v4.8.4+. If not, update from an older version with
conda update conda.
Libsoundfile on linux: The graphical user interface (GUI) reads audio data using soundfile, which relies on
libsndfile will be automatically installed on Windows and macOS. On Linux, the library needs to be installed manually with:
sudo apt-get install libsndfile1. Note that DAS will work w/o
libsndfile but will not be able to load exotic audio formats.
Create an anaconda environment called
das that contains all the required packages:
conda install mamba -c conda-forge -n base -y mamba create python=3.9 das=0.31.0 -c conda-forge -c ncb -c anaconda -c nvidia -n das -y
For linux, the last line needs to be:
CONDA_OVERRIDE_CUDA=11.2 mamba create python=3.9 das=0.31.0 -c conda-forge -c ncb -c anaconda -c nvidia -n das -y
To start the graphical user interface:
conda activate das das gui
The documentation at https://janclemenslab.org/das/ provides information on the usage of DAS:
- A quick start tutorial walks through all steps from manually annotating song, over training a network, to generating new annotations.
- How to use the graphical user interface.
- How to use DAS from the terminal or from python scripts.
The following packages were modified and integrated into das:
- Keras implementation of TCN models modified from keras-tcn (in
- Trainable STFT layer implementation modified from kapre (in
