Groove2Groove MIDI Dataset: synthetic accompaniments in 3k styles
By O. Cífka

The Groove2Groove MIDI Dataset is a parallel corpus of synthetic MIDI accompaniments in almost 3000 different styles. The accompaniments were created from chord charts using the commercial Band-in-a-Box accompaniment generation software. Each chord chart is rendered in at least two different styles, alllowing the data to be used for supervised learning of style transfer tasks.

The dataset is available from Zenodo. For more information, see the Groove2Groove paper (Cífka et al., 2020) or its companion website.
