Mufin: Music Discovery Engine

Well, we’ve heard of search engines but have you ever heard of music discovery engines? There’s a few that I’ve heard of and today I got to know of another, thanks to Jason Kincaid from TechCrunch.

Mufin, Music Finder, Music Discovery Engine

After grabbing Mufin’s private beta invite from TechCrunch, I discovered that I have actually tested out Mufin via MAGIX not so long ago. Mufin was just a downloadable-software then but now Mufin has come up with their own web site, giving users the opportunity to use Mufin online.

So, what is Mufin anyway? Check out what Mufin’s self-defined definition:
mufin is your music discovery engine, using which you can easily discover new music in our database with millions of songs - with exactly the sound that you dig.

Mufin: The first MP3 Management Tool in the world that knows what you want to listen to before you do?

Yes, that was what Mufin was all about back in 2007 and Mufin proudly announced that their music discovery engine is the first in the world. I really don’t know whether or not that is true but I do know that a lot of people are quite happy with Mufin. Jason Kincaid who gave Mufin a quick test drive has this to say about his discoveries:
In practice, these recommendations seem to work very well - at least more than 75% of the time in my testing. Many of my searches for popular songs (such as Here Comes The Sun) yielded results that sounded very similar, though many of these matches were in a different language or were recorded by obscure bands. To rule out the possibility of pre-determined matches, I tried a few more obscure recordings. The Darkness’ timeless classic “I Believe In A Thing Called Love” yielded “Sucker” by Europe. And Kyu Sakamoto’s “Sukiyaki” was matched with “Twilight Time” from The Platters - a song I’ve never heard of, but is unquestionably similar.

Don’t waste your time, folks. Grab your private beta invites (follow the link that I have provided earlier) and test drives Mufin today. See if it can really discover music for you. :-)
