The Filter for Mac
Exabre today launched the Mac version of The Filter, its music recommendation software that creates playlists from an iTunes library according to several seed tracks selected by users. The software makes playlists according to user mood or activity, and updates them daily to iPods. The Filter works when users highlight one or two songs that typify a listening style, generating a playlist by scanning the library using artificial intelligence to analyze music tastes and cross-referencing with those of other users and musical trends. The Filter is designed to improve at judging personal music tastes with more usage, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later on a G4 or better Mac with 512MB or more of memory.
