If you produce software, you can license the software technology listed
below for use in your applications. Why reinvent the wheel when you can
purchase proven, high-quality sound-processing algorithms from the experts?
- Audio content-based
retrieval (CBR) allows sound files to be
analyzed for a specific set of psychoacoustic features that are useful
in comparing sounds. You can analyze sound files, cluster them according
to categories, and search for sounds that are similar or dissimilar
to other sounds.
Check out the demos to see this
technology in action, or read about the details in an 1996 IEEE Multimedia
paper here or a more recent article
- Our time-scaling and pitch-shifting
algorithms let you modify an audio file's duration and pitch independently
of each other. We have time-domain (fast) and frequency-domain (highest-quality)
versions that use our proprietary digital resampling algorithm. Applications
include digital music processing, voice-mail processing, and multimedia
conversions. Go to the demo to hear examples
of our time-scaling and pitch-shifting.
- We have a variety of other algorithms available in
areas such as audio signal processing (reverb, delay, filters,
etc.), real-time signal recognition (for example, to detect
commercials and songs in radio broadcasts), and MIDI processing.
Technology licenses are negotiated on a case-by-case basis. We are open
to alternative financing arrangements for these licenses, including royalties,
profit-sharing, and trade for services.
