2010-9-10--AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands (IBC) Soundminer's new SpectralSearch option debuted at this year's IBC show in Amsterdam - Not only can users employ the vast array of search engine methods pioneered by Soundminer, but now a user can find music based on spectral qualities.
Once a sound is found, it can be used as a ‘seed’ to find other sounds that share similar qualities regardless of the metadata. Rhythmic and timbral analysis is performed across dozens of attributes. SpectralSearch analyzes your entire catalgoue and brings out the full sonic potential of your library. Unlike collaborative filtering which only provides statistical analysis often resulting in increasingly polarized results, Soundminer's SpectralSearch provides a much richer experience by allowing you the power of both advanced metadata searching in conjunction with deep spectral mining.
Sometimes what you think you need may be something you would have never thought of searching by traditional metadata text searching.....now you have the best of both worlds - Soundminer’s noted metadata search engine as well as the new SpectralSearch option.
