The Gracenote Developer program opens the world’s largest and most trusted source of music metadata and recognition technology to the developers who are building the future of music.
The concept behind the Gracenote Developer Program is simple: to foster innovation in the music community. Gracenote wants to make it simple for developers to build something cool with Gracenote data and technology, without making them meet the suits or sign long-term contracts.
Starting today, developers can access Gracenote’s Mobile Client featuring Gracenote MusicID®, an audio fingerprinting technology that can be integrated into mobile Apps to identify artists, albums and tracks by simply holding a phone to the music. To date, Gracenote MusicID has powered some of the world’s most popular music recognition Apps and services, including Soundtracking, musiXmatch and Rhapsody SongMatch.
The Gracenote Developer program supports a variety of development platforms, including mobile, desktop and Web APIs. These APIs enable the recognition of music from text lookups, CDs, digital files and audio captured with a mobile device, and returns descriptive metadata for more than 2,000 music genres and sub-genres, artist origins, and more than 100 music moods. Developers can also tap into the world’s largest commercial source of Album Cover Art, artist biographies and other related content.
One of the first developers to build an application using the Gracenote Mobile Client is Stream That Song from Orange Labs. This App lets music fans identify a song by holding their phone to the music and adding the identified song or artist to their Deezer or Spotify accounts. They can even launch radio stations with similar music based on the song they’ve identified. Download it here.
