Epidemic Sound, a service proving direct licensing of royalty-free music, have announced Epidemic Audio Reference (EAR), an audio-based search tool running on Google Cloud that aims to provide content creators with a quick and easy way to find music for their productions.
The company currently offers 35,000 tracks and 90,000 sound effects that are available via their online library, which is used by content creators worldwide. This new tool, developed using Google Cloud technology, allows users to manually select a section of music from the library and then employs machine learning to analyse the characteristics and notes. This allows EAR to generate suggestions of tracks with a similar tone and sound.
“EAR is the latest feature in our commitment to making it as easy and quick as possible for content creators to find the right music no matter how they search. Google Cloud’s scalable and light-touch infrastructure has been instrumental to our ability to meet user demand and develop innovations like EAR,” says Greg Elkehag Funk, Chief Product Officer at Epidemic Sound.
