Sorry for all the topics on acoustic ids and fingerprinting, but now that Picard has been working per its specs, I am trying to understand the whole process in some detail…
So, I understand that I can submit ids through, for example Picard using my key obtained from acoustID site, and I understand for the most part how the two interact on this data. A summary of what I would like some clarification on is:
NOTE: “this” is a reference to a fingerprint generated and submitted to MB and its association in the acoustID site data
- How is this related to AcousticBrainz? I might assume that AcousticBrainz takes the AcoustID and expands on this data, using the MBIDs and acoustIDs to tie all this data together?
- Is submitting a AcousticBrainz “submission” and submitting an acoustID the same, related, or neither?
- There are other “names” akin to this like Echoprint, Shazam, SoundHound, etc. Is there any relationship between these and acoustIDs, as stored in this? Is there any relation to AcousticBrainz? Yes or no, is there any sharing of data regardless of other types of relationships? Maybe it is even actually one database with different brands?
- So I might wrap my over-technical head around this, do you have a visual representation of acoustID matching? I would not expect this, but something like those CSI shows where they show you the progress of fingerprint matching. I am looking more just for a representation of the identification steps in the matching of IDs and the determination of the match. Will Drevo has a quite reasonable outline of this, but I am unsure if that applies to all, just his work or what.
Sorry for the questions in so much detail, but I am hoping asking some starting questions to those who know will hasten my learning curve on this.
