MusicMagic Mixer 1.5

Predixis today released , its music search engine that creates instant compilations from any music collection, designed to help listeners discover additional music that fits their mood. Version 1.5 offers an improved user-interface, mix controls on the toolbar, an on-screen search field, and a live music discovery window. The application features a built-in music player, and adds support for universal plug-and-play devices. An acoustic scanning option plays non-random samples from the musical clusters in a users music collection, creating instant mixes of songs with the current musical feel. Integrated discovery opens a "discovery window" that exposes similar music from mainstream and indie sources for any browsed track. The application also features a power search feature that scans tracks using natural language queries based on facts behind the music, such as "rap music by men." It requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later, and will be available in January (with a "totally redesigned interface") for $20. [updated]

MusicMagic Mixer's "power toys" include an advanced search, anchored smooth shuffle, the ability to legally share musical "moods" and playlists with friends, the capability to fix artist metadata and duplicates in a musical library, and "waypoint mixes" that allow users to create a mix by choosing the first and last song.
