Midomi Software Allows You To Find Music With Your Voice

by Darla Mack

Midomi One of the features that I loved with the N75 was the music recognition app.  Something like that really needs to be implemented in all of the Nseries devices, but as you know it was an AT&T customized app. 

Although it's not quite the same... if you can sing the lyrics, Midomi can help you find the music.

What was that tune? It goes like this: "Hmmm, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm."

Imagine being able to track down that elusive tune in your head by singing or humming it. With midomi mobile on your S60 3rd Edition device, you can soon not only know the tune, but also be able to hear renditions of the song submitted by midomi.com's many other users and contributors. After analyzing the pitch, melody, rhythm, speech, and other features that make up your rendition of a song, midomi compares them to those measurements in a database of hundreds of thousands of tunes that have been sung and submitted by other users. The artificial intelligence (AI) software finds the correct matches 95 percent of the time if the correct song is in the database. It even does so when you have to sing or hum the tune softly into your S60 device so as not to disturb the person in the next cubicle at work or at a neighboring table in a restaurant.

Midomi is available for free from the company website, or you can download via your mobile at m.midomi.com.

I have to admit I really like this app. I've had it since last year and have been really useful for when Shazam can't identify some of the foreign songs I've tried to get info on. You can even hum the tune and it works!

Actually, I've had quite the opposite experience unfortunately. I've heard of these chaps about 2 years ago and recently gave the app another go. Sadly, it couldn't seem to recognise my voice and provided rather poor results.

Or perhaps it could be due to my accent? :)


I know you probably wont believe me, but I was only thinking about such an app the other day. I said to myself, could you imagine if there was an app where you could humm the song what you know in your head, but cannot for the life of you remember who sang it, or who it was by etc.
