If you happen to be an audiophile, then Audiggle is definitely an app you need! Audiggle is a lightweight audio recognition app that has some pretty cool features under the hood.
In a single click of the mouse, Audiggle is able to give you the title and the artist for whatever track you care to be listening to. The tracks do not have to be in perfect quality, or for that matter an actual audio track on your computer. The source can be from a soundtrack to a scene in a DV, or a backing track of Youtube clip, or even from an Internet radio station.
The Audiggle software works by capturing a short clip of whatever audio is playing on your PC, and it then searches a giant database of similar clips, and provides you with the answers.
Audio Sources include:
- Watching a DVD.
- Online video.
- Streaming online TV.
- Internet Radio.
- Mislabelled audio tracks.
Audiggle is really good at what it does. It does tend to work best of all with high quality audio, but if pushed, it can recognize background music from a scene in a TV show.
Overall, Audiggle is a great app that is very capable. It is lightweight, it consumes hardly any of your system resources and can recognise audio data from all over the globe, in numerous languages. With the ability to checkout lyrics to tracks, and have download links for iTunes and Amazon, not to mention the ability to find out if the band you just discovered is playing locally, what more could you possibly need from an audio discovery tool?
