Introducing the new Sonic Search API
SourceAudio's proprietary audio-signal-processing and frequency-analysis search technology called "Sonic Search" -- which already comes standard with every site on our network -- has made another huge leap forward just a few months after its initial launch. Companies who want to tap into all of the benefits of audio-initiated music searching can now integrate the best signal-processing technology available into their own stand-alone site via our new Sonic Search API. Through the API your users will be able to search for music on your own website by uploading an mp3, pasting in a SoundCloud URL, or pasting in a YouTube URL and Sonic Search will return results from your music catalog that are musically similar to the track used to initiate the search. It's really that simple.
How does the API work?
SourceAudio's development team has prepared standard API documentation that any web programming team will be able to follow for seamless integration of Sonic Search into your own site. Once the API is integrated SourceAudio will scan and index each track in your music catalog and then you're ready to go.
Why use Sonic Search?
There are several business, user experience and market-driven reasons why Sonic Search is becoming increasingly important in music licensing.
1. We know that more and more music buyers are looking to sonic matching & signal processing search technologies to aid them in their music searches. Metadata is great, but signal processing + metadata is even better and Sonic Search is the solution.
2. In several head-to-head comparisons against similar technologies, SourceAudio has won out every time in both the quality of the results and the overall user experience.
3. SourceAudio built Sonic Search from scratch, wholly owns every piece of it, and has dedicated development experts in-house who continually update, improve, tweak and perfect the algorithms that deliver you the best search results possible. We're dedicated to maintaing the best signal processing tech available anywhere.
