Click the Info tab in the window that opens, and you'll see the following information: Fair enough, but let's say you want to add an entire album's publication year to the info list, or that you want to change the genre to something a little more accurate, or even that you want to add artwork. - The Echo Nest Musical Fingerprint (ENMFP) Tomorrow begins MHD Amsterdam and at it The Echo Nest is releasing a few new things. Some of our engineering team (who deserve a severe callout for all their work, let me stick with their codenames) have been working tirelessly to get “songs” to be a first-class member of our API, and as of today, they are — we now track many millions of songs and you can query for them by name and receive all sort of useful metadata, get similar songs (with amazing results even very deep in the catalog), and even get free (legal) playable audio for a huge collection of major label content (more on this later.) As part of this push to provide data about songs, we have been working on a music fingerprint— a way to resolve an unknown audio file (what we call a “track”) to a large database to identify it in our world (as a “song.”) And we’re ready to release this to the community to see how it performs in the wild.

5 Ways to Promote Your DJ Mix on SoundCloud SoundCloud has been a game changer, not least for the number of CDs that haven\’t been burned & binned since it came along. Just last week our making a mixtape series got loads of feedback proving how popular mixtapes are with DJs wanting to promote themselves.

But after spending so much time getting your mix just-so, the last thing you want is to post it online for it to sit there, unlistened to and unloved, for eternity.

Acoustic fingerprint An acoustic fingerprint is a condensed digital summary, deterministically generated from an audio signal, that can be used to identify an audio sample or quickly locate similar items in an audio database.[1] Attributes[edit] Most audio compression techniques (AAC, MP3, WMA, Vorbis) will make radical changes to the binary encoding of an audio file, without radically affecting the way it is perceived by the human ear. A robust acoustic fingerprint will allow a recording to be identified after it has gone through such compression, even if the audio quality has been reduced significantly. For use in radio broadcast monitoring, acoustic fingerprints should also be insensitive to analog transmission artifacts. On the other hand, a good acoustic fingerprint algorithm must be able to identify a particular master recording among all the productions of an artist or group.

Make your own Shazam? There's an API for that Yesterday, mobile discovery firm Shazam raised $32 million and talked about its ongoing move beyond basic music identification. A good thing, too, for today US company The Echo Nest is launching a platform that lets any developer create their own baby Shazam for a fraction of the cost. It's called Echoprint, and is being touted as the world's "first fully open-source music fingerprint service", drawing on UK firm 7digital's catalogue of 13 million songs, and with plans to expand its database over time as more apps are launched using it. "Music fingerprinting should belong to the Internet," says Echo Nest co-founder and chief technology officer Brian Whitman, in a statement. "It should be a service that every developer can rely on without worrying about licensing fees or complicated database implementations... Any music experience, from a streaming cloud service to a social music game can now immediately include music recognition.
