It seems like I didn't realise the effect that having MELODIA (and other vamp plug-ins) included in the curriculum of a course on digital sound design on coursera.org was going to have... in 2 days, MELODIA has been downloaded over 800 times and the total count is now above 1200!
Not quite the "slashdot effect", but the closest I've ever experienced :)
Beside boosting the download count, I hope this will increase students' interest in melody extraction and help introduce a new generation of artists to MELODIA. I'm sure they'll find ways to exploit it I've never thought of before...
Once the "coursera-burst" is over I'll post again with some interesting download stats and (hopefully) some insights.
Machine listening research, code, data & hacks!
