>Dear List
>
>I am looking for available databases of instruments to use in research.
>
>I have found three: McGill, RWC, Iowa. Are there any others? And
>does anyone know if RWC separates vibrato and non vibrato pieces?
>
>McGill US$50
> Clearly describes recording method
>Variety of styles (loudness, vibrato, etc.) but does not appear to
>be an exhaustive corpus
>Does not differentiate different instruments, performers, (near as I can tell)
> 2 DVDs
>
>RWC US$150
> Designed for research
>Differentiates performers, (3), instrument manufacturer,
>Loudness, (3 levels). Differentiates vibrato and non vibrato?
> Huge - 12 DVDs
>
>
>Iowa Free
> Online
> Variety of instruments
> Has some vibrato/non vibrato pieces of the same instrument.
> Does not differentiate different instruments, performers.
> Loudness (3 levels)
