Welcome to DAS

DAS — short for deep audio segmenter — is a tool for annotating song in audio recordings. At the core of DAS is a deep neural network, implemented in Tensorflow. The network takes single- and multi-channel audio as an input and returns the probability of finding a particular song type for each audio sample. DAS can be used with a graphical user interface for loading audio data, annotating song manually, training a network, and generating annotations on audio. Alternatively, DAS can be used programmatically from the command line, in python notebooks, or in your own python code via the das module.
