We are not talking about using our voice to enter the search term into the text field and searching. midomi is entirely different. midomi.com makes it fun and easy to find and discover music and people.
With midomi you can actually search for music by singing or humming part of a song. All you need is a microphone.
Midomi uses a proprietary Multimodal Adaptive Recognition System (MARS) Search developed by Melodis Corporation. According to Melodis, the MARS Search analyzes each element independently and adapts to the stronger components. For instance, MARS Search takes speech content into account if the user sings the lyrics and ignores speech content if the user hums or whistles the song.
There is more to midomi than searching for music. You can contribute to the database by singing in midomi’s online recording studio in any language or genre. The next time anyone searches for that song, your performance might be the top result! Cool…isn’t it.
