Metadata is important across the whole music industry, and that includes the production music sector, with its clients invariably pushed for time as they hunt down the right tracks for their projects. That’s why we’ve seen production libraries looking for deals and technology that can help them.
The latest example is one of the bigger companies in the space, APM Music, which is working with startup Cyanite’s music search tech. That’s a system that uses AI to analyse a catalogue of music and automate the tagging of it – sitting alongside existing data created by humans, rather than replacing it entirely.
We recently interviewed Cyanite for our startup files: you can read that here, including how it’s trying to carve out its space in a market with rivals including MyPart and Musiio.
