SoundFlavor DJ for iTunes
Soundflavor today released Soundflavor DJ iTunes Edition, its digital music companion for Apple's iTunes software. Powered by the company's Music Recommendation Engine, Soundflavor DJ's song recommendations are based on more than six years of research that includes the analysis of hundreds of thousands of songs, spanning nearly every genre of music. Users play a few songs in iTunes, which immediately appear in the application's PlayStream. The software then takes over and begins showing album artwork for upcoming songs. Users can adjust the "Flavorizer" knob to control how often the utility makes song recommendations to enhance the playlist. Set to "Mild Flavor," the option attempts to refresh an existing playlist, while "Full Flavor" lets Soundflavor DJ take over to play tracks by itself. The application works as a companion to iTunes and is available for free to Windows XP users. A Mac version, as well as support for additional digital music software such as Windows Media Player, is planned.
