beatStation can annotate onsets, beats or segments in audio files.
Download the archive and extract/copy the directory on your local hard drive.
Before starting the app you need to copy 2 or more sound files to annotate in the data/sounds/ subdirectory.
You can also adjust different settings from the settings file. Take a look at the wiki page for more info. For instance, you can choose to tap with a midi interface or just use the keyboard.
beatStation was designed as a game with a purpose application in which users can compete between each other in tapping various songs. In this setup, you need to have Octave or Matlab installed in order to compute the score for each user.
The source code and build instructions can be found at: https://github.com/SMC-INESC/beatStation
beatStation can be used by researchers to annotate audio, conduct experiments, or as an inspiration for future apps.
