New York (January 12, 2007)–MusicIP, a search engine for music with a database of over 26 million analyzed songs, has debuted MusicIP Mixer, which cleans up the metadata in digital music collections.
Along with building instant playlists and acoustic music searching, music fans can also use the MusicIP Mixer to fill in missing metadata and correct wrong artist, album and song title information. The new tag-fixing feature is built on the MusicIP database, which is continuously updated by artists as well as both commercial and non-commercial sources to ensure accuracy.
“Tag Fixing is an exciting new feature for the MusicIP product line,” said Dr. Matthew Dunn, CEO of MusicIP. “People get music from many sources, not just CDs. Our patented acoustic fingerprinting technology enables consistent track recognition, so we can fix the mess for users automatically.”
MusicIP has also made the tag-fixing data freely available to software developers. MusicDNS, which claims to be the industry’s largest content identification system, provides developers commercial and open-source code libraries to query for song IDs and metadata. MusicDNS access is free.
