I’ve read about the 2 minute issue before and knew there were some limitations but acoustic id usually does a good job at matching the recordings.
But now I’ve noticed some fingerprints I’ve submitted get the same acoustic id.
It seems to confuse the instrumental/vocal versions. Even though they diverge before the 2 minute mark.
Just added these a few hours a go.
The vocals begin around the 0"53’ mark
Again, here the main vocals begin around the 1"37’ mark.
I first noticed this behaviour with "Into You (instrumental) by The Cinematic Orchestra"
The track was initially merged with the vocal version, after separating and resubmitting the fingerprint, it gave the same acoustic id.
When I scan the tracks in Picard, with all the meta data cleaned out and even the files names change to something ambiguous, it always prefers the vocal version.
Although the vocals clearly begin around 1"06’ mark. I thought may be because they were previously merged, it had some kind of “memory”. So didn’t dwell on it too much.
But now with the ones I’ve added above, I’m beginning to think there’s something else going on.
I’ve tried submitting with the fingerprint app (windows) and Picard, same results.
