Introducing Cyanite’s Keyword Search by Weights – New Feature Announcement

January 19, 2022
Cyanite presents a new way to search for music characterized by increased accuracy and precision of search – Keyword Search by Weights. The Keyword Search by Weights allows for searching tracks based on multiple keywords simultaneously where each keyword can be weighted for its impact on the search. This feature leads to more relevant search results with less time-effort spent on search. 

Usually, you search for music by entering the respective keyword or keywords into the search bar. With Keyword Search by Weights, you choose from 1,500 unique terms representing various characteristics of the song such as mood, genre, situation, brand values, and style, and then you can select the weights to maximize the relevance of search results. Ultimately, if you have an idea of the track in mind, Cyanite can give you exactly what you’re looking for.

How It Works?
You access Keyword Search by Weights through the Search tab in the menu. Please contact the Cyanite team via the link below beforehand to unlock the feature. 

You can select up to 10 keywords from the Augmented Keywords set in the search bar. The chosen keywords will appear on the right with a weight bar and a cursor which you can place at any point between -1 to 1. For example, the keyword search input sparkling: 0.5, sad: -1, rock: 1, dreamy: 1, would refer to a search for a rock track that is dreamy, slightly sparkling, and not at all sad.

To show you how it works, our CEO Markus made a video introduction walking you through each step of the process.
