Alternative download mirror for MUSDB18-HQ

Zenodo is hit or miss. Today, I can’t get anything above 20kbps - as a result, I won’t be able to download MUSDB18-HQ feasibly any time this week or month.

(luckily I already have a copy that I used for the competition. I just wanted to redownload it on a different computer)

Can researchers consider hosting MUSDB18-HQ in a more accessible location? I don’t understand how a 21GB file is difficult to download in 2021. Just throw it in an S3 bucket somewhere. (I wouldn’t because I don’t want to violate copyrights or attribution etc.)

I’m sorry, that you are having such a bad experience with zenodo. I just tested the download and I get around 2 Mb/s, so if there was an issue, it has been solved.

sigsep/musdb18 is a community effort. We have to rely on free services, if you know a better suited alternative than zenodo, please let me know. We tried also with little success…

My tone was probably more rude than necessary - sorry about that. I checked with some friends who reported 1000-4000kbps, so closer to what you got.

Perhaps I was having bad luck the other day.

We appreciate your feedback! If these problems would have happened in the beginning of the competition we would have tried to find an alternative mirror - but I guess everyone managed to get a copy now :wink:
