  • Patent number: 11475867
    Abstract: A system, method and computer product for combining audio tracks. In one example embodiment herein, the method comprises determining at least one music track that is musically compatible with a base music track, aligning those tracks in time, and combining the tracks. In one example embodiment herein, the tracks may be music tracks of different songs, the base music track can be an instrumental accompaniment track, and the at least one music track can be a vocal track. Also in one example embodiment herein, the determining is based on musical characteristics associated with at least one of the tracks, such as an acoustic feature vector distance between tracks, a likelihood of at least one track including a vocal component, a tempo, or musical key. Also, determining of musical compatibility can include determining at least one of a vertical musical compatibility or a horizontal musical compatibility among tracks.

  • Patent number: 11238839
    Abstract: Methods, systems and computer program products are provided for identifying an audio stem. Audio stems (t1, . . . , tN) are stored on a stem database and songs (S1, . . . , SP) made with at least a subset of the plurality of the audio stems (t1, . . . , tN) are stored on a song database. At least partially composed song (S*) having a predetermined number of pre-selected stems (k) are received. In turn, a probability vector (or relevance value or ranking) is produced for each stem (t1, . . . , tN) to be complementary to the at least partially composed song (S*).

  • Publication number: 20210312941
    Abstract: Methods, systems and computer program products are provided for determining acoustic feature vectors of query and target items in a first vector space, and mapping the acoustic feature vectors to a second vector space having a lower dimension. The distribution of vectors in the second vector space can then be used to identify items from the same songs, and/or items that are complementary. A mapping function is trained using a machine learning algorithm, such that complementary audio items are closer in the second vector space than the first, according to a given distance metric.
