Normally, music is classified by its genre, tempo or similar criteria. MusicDNA detects more detailed characteristics of songs.
Analyzing any audio file quickly and automatically, MusicDNA gives insight into the music’s mood, style, color and hardness, regardless of its format. At the end of this process, highly consistent semantic metadata has been gathered from the original track.
The core audio analysis technology has been designed by Bach Technology in cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology (IDMT) and is continuously updated with new optimized descriptors.
MusicDNA Audio Identification is a robust, flexible system for the identification of audio signals incorporating MusicDNA’s enhanced metadata technology. Some examples of potential integrations are:
MusicDNA provides a media database and metadata feed service that identifies, organizes and enriches digital music. This improvement helps to drive sales and increase customer loyalty of online music services. For devices, it is a cost-effective recognition and metadata tagging service.
The MusicDNA media database contains consistent music analysis data and a repository of textual and multimedia rich metadata. It is constantly growing and covers more than 21 million tracks from all the major labels and music aggregators. The database supports both networked and embedded applications for home entertainment, automotive, portable music player, and mobile phone markets.
The MusicDNA Music Metadata service can easily be integrated into any music service via our web service or our SDKs for software and mobile platforms.
