These look fantastic! Music is subjective but I find that AI provides a level of detailed consistency not normally seen when hiring someone. Particularly, when that person is new to this specific corner of the business. The descriptions & keywords are spot on, as if tagged by a veteran of the industry. I especially like not having to spend time on the more laborious tasks of tagging tempo, BPM, mood & musical key.

– Ruben Nava, Music Junkies

The future is here! As founder/CEO of Digital Music Consulting, after overseeing metadata creation for 500,000+ tracks, I can proclaim this a game changer! I'd always dreamed of feeding in a cue and getting correct, efficient data analysis. That day has arrived. I'd highly recommend adding this AI Data set to metadata (especially aggregate systems); it's so rich and targeted. Now composing daily for TV, this immediate data creation lets me get new music to editors and supervisors much faster. Bravo Source Audio!

– Doug Bossi, iSPY MUSIC

We've been looking and demoing a couple of tagging companies/platforms. After a quick look at a few cues, this is better than any of them at a fraction of the cost. I look forward to using SA's tagging AI.


Impressive, mind-blowing, time-efficient!!! I would give it an 80%-95% accuracy. Now my question to you is how to regain the hours, days, months, and years of Meta tagging? :)


AI Tagging FAQ’s

  1. Do I need a SourceAudio site to tag my music with AI?
  2. We highly recommend maintaining an active SourceAudio subscription to continuously benefit from our state-of-the-art AI audio tagging solution.

However, the true power of SourceAudio is realized through an ongoing subscription that allows you to: Instantly Access Evolving Tags - Search audio assets directly in SourceAudio or via API across your platforms - New uploads are instantly analyzed with our latest AI for real-time tagging & insights - Tags continuously optimize as our models rapidly advance
    Enjoy a Future-Proof Solution - Exciting roadmap of new descriptive terms, techniques, and use cases added regularly - Early 2024 will see new Style, Instrumentation, Vocals, and more metadata fields added - As an active member, you automatically receive all major feature releases
    By subscribing, you future-proof your metadata and unlock emerging categories that fuel advanced analytics, optimized search & discovery, synchronization opportunities, and revenue growth. Maintaining state-of-the-art intelligence ensures your content remains fully optimized for all streaming, licensing, and distribution channels well into the future.

  3. Do I need an ongoing subscription to leverage your AI tags?
  4. No. We offer the option of one-time AI tagging. However, an active subscription unlocks additional, continuous value including:

    - Access to Future Upgrades: As our AI models rapidly advance, your tags upgrade automatically. - Integration Options: Through our API, integrate our leading search, sonic search, and metadata into your own platforms. - Instant Tagging: New uploads get tagged in real-time with our latest intelligence. - Cost Savings: For a small monthly fee, subscribe once for continuous upgrades versus paying per re-tag to access more fields, descriptive terms, analytics, and all of the other enhancements we have planned.
    By subscribing to our monthly hosting SaaS product, aka. “Catalog Manager”, you future-proof your metadata to fuel search, discovery, personalization, synchronization opportunities and advanced analytics well into the future. With flexible API integration options, think of it as powering your platform’s capabilities via our AI rather than just accessing our interface.

    The choice is yours. But subscribing unlocks enduring advantages from both an economic and technological perspective.

  5. What fields does the AI tag?
  6. Genre, mood, style, style of, keyword, bpm, tempo, has vocals, and key data. In early 2024 we will be adding male/female vocals, instrumentation, and even full lyric transcription.

  7. Can I export the tags as a csv file?
  8. Yes, you can export your AI tags anytime you wish. And, just like Sonic Search, you can also access them using our API.

  9. Can I edit the AI tags?
  10. While you cannot edit the AI tag fields themselves, we provide tools which make it easy to copy or merge tags to fields which can be edited. You can also choose to include or exclude AI tag fields for search.

  11. How much does this cost?
  12. Every SourceAudio subscriber starts with 30 FREE TRACKS they can tag with AI. The low cost of only $.40 per track is our standard fee thereafter. Non-SourceAudio subscribers pay $0.50/track for a one-time snapshot of their own metadata. You can choose to AI tag specific tracks, albums, or your entire catalog. Contact us for enterprise bulk pricing.

  13. Is this service for me if I’ve already tagged my music?
  14. Yes! You will see dramatic improvements in the relevance of your search results as the AI is impartial and isn’t subject to human bias, incomplete data, or human error. And, our AI metadata stays on time, on trend, and takes into consideration how the world is actually searching for music right now and into the future… that’s why we keep saying, “Future-proof your catalog with our AI tagging”!
