We are pleased to publish KiSing, the first open-source Mandarin singing corpus built specifically for singing voice synthesis (SVS).
This corpus consists of singing voices and their corresponding musical and phonetic annotation. The specification is as follows.
- 14 songs from Keyi (Kiki) Zhang (composer, lyricist, singer)
- High quality (recorded in a professional recording studio) and high sampling rate (48 kHz)
- Other useful data (MIDI, phoneme labels with specific duration information)
Keyi (Kiki) Zhang, 张钶浥, is a talented Chinese female singer, composer, and lyricist. She has published around 30 songs with a variety of styles. The KiSing corpus, named after her name Kiki, mainly consists of some of his published songs. Those songs with accompaniments can be found in both QQ music and Netease Cloud Music. Feel free to check them out!
