CPU Productions has released Groove Detective, a search engine for Audio and MIDI drum/percussion loops based on patterns and ‘sounds like’.
Groove Detective is based on advanced DSP analysis of the audio in the loops (except MIDI files of course). It will find the exact location of the hits in three loosely defined categories: kick drum, snare drum and hihat as well as obtain a detailed descriptor of the sound characteristics of each hit. This information is placed in a database with a sophisticated indexing system allowing you to find what you’re looking for almost instantaneously.
Groove Detective features
- Analysis 100% automated.
- Maintains the database automatically.
- Searches very large collections in milliseconds.
- All commonly used file formats supported (all non-loss audio, REX, ACID, Apple Loops, MP3, WMA, MIDI).
Groove Detective for Windows is available to purchase for $65 USD.
