Very close fingerprint match doesn't seem to link to a track

I’m trying to scan a specific track but the AcoustID server doesn’t seem to match it with an existing track in the database. I compared the fingerprints and while it’s not an exact match, it should be close enough to both link to the same track. But the server doesn’t seem to ever link it to this track or create another new track for it.

The existing track: https://acoustid.org/track/2a64c5d6-df03-4a9e-80aa-75dfe18c6eb9
My track’s fingerprint:

Indeed, the corresponding lookup for the fingerprint would be this request, and that gives an empty result.

How did you generate the visual comparison? Locally? As I understand it your fingerprint is not yet in the database, right?

Have you tried submitting your fingerprint already? The AcoustID import wasn’t running the last days, but currently it seems to be resumed. Would be interesting to see how this fingerprint is assigned once it has been imported.

I generated the comparison locally, by copy/pasting the fingerprint comparison webpage and pasting my fingerprint in the source code instead.

This is a fingerprint I originally submitted about a month ago when it didn’t take. I tried again this morning after submissions started working again and the result is the same.

Nice, I need to check out this trick.

It’s fairly easy to do. Just save a comparison page like this one and edit the two fp1 and fp2 variables in the source. You can use the output of fpcalc with the -raw flag and it just works.
