Sonic Annotator v1.4 now available
« on: March 18, 2016, 16:52:36 »
Sonic Annotator is a utility program for batch feature extraction from audio files.  It runs Vamp audio analysis plugins with specified parameters on audio files, and writes the result features in a selection of formats.

Version 1.4 is now available. This is a bugfix release. Changes include:

Front-end changes:

 - Better error reporting, especially for invalid transform files
   and transform-not-found

 - Avoid crashing out when a single plugin (that is not being used)
   can't be loaded because of e.g. an undefined symbol

Bug fixes:

 - Fix (with test) horrible crash with --multiplex option

 - Fix erroneous quantization to 16 bits for coded file types of
   greater bit depth

 - Fix multiple outputs when requesting both summary and non-summary
   for the same output

It appears I did not announce the previous v1.3 release in this forum; for the record, the changes in v1.3 were as follows:

Back-end (feature writer) changes:

 - Add the --csv-digits, --lab-digits, and --jams-digits options to
   control the number of significant figures printed for feature values

 - Update the JAMS writer to JAMS 0.2.0 format

 - Show a more useful error message when user provides a filename
   instead of a transform id to the -d option (happened to me when
   cut-and-pasting command lines and I was quite baffled at first)
