Midomi: Search Music By Singing

Posted on 6.30.2008
There are plenty of choices out there to search for music online. But with Midomi, you can use your computer microphone and search by singing or humming the tune. Great for when you know the song, but don't remember the title. It works by matching your singing with those of other users. Once found you can listen to the actual song, the renditions by other Midomi members and then rate them, leave comments and ultimately purchase the song.

Of course there is a social element, including user profiles with all of their recordings, likes and dislikes, etc. If you sing a tune that Midomi doesn't recognize, you can sing it in their recording studio to add it yourself.

Maybe Midomi isn't the most useful site in the world, but it sure is an interesting development in the world of search and community. And fun, too.

Check out the video demonstration.
