Solution: Automatic metadata via API integration

Filmmusic.io implemented Cyanite’s music intelligence to automate song tagging especially in the fields of bpm, moods, and key. Next, a Similarity Search will be implemented in a new major update, allowing Filmmusic.io users to search the platform by reference tracks. The technology is seamlessly integrated via the Cyanite API, which means that every new song on Filmmusic.io is automatically tagged and added to the Similarity Search.
