A leader in the digital music market, Predixis Corporation, is pleased to announce the release of MusicMagic Mixer Version 1.5, for spontaneous compilations and music discovery.

Based on a collection of more than 13 million fingerprinted and analyzed tracks--the largest such set in the world--Predixis’ technology gets just the right music to listeners at just the right moment.

Predixis Corporation, a pioneer in the digital music domain, is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the MusicMagic Mixer Version 1.5. Considered a true “music search engine” for its breakthrough use of song acoustics, MusicMagic Mixer creates instant compilations from any music collection, and helps listeners discover additional music that fits their mood.

As with previous releases, Version 1.5 provides a portal to manage, enjoy, and grow digital music collections. In addition to the many new features making their debut in MMM Version 1.5, the entire application has a new look that includes superior graphics, mix controls on the toolbar, an on-screen search engine, and a live music discovery window.

Highlights At A Glance:

*Integrated Player: The MusicMagic Mixer now has a built-in player, along with the ability to send mixes to other players such as iTunes and Windows Media Player.

  • Acoustic Scan: One of the most innovative features in this new release is the ability to close your eyes and search your music acoustically. The cool green Acoustic Scan button plays non-random samples from the musical clusters in a listener’s personal collection. One more click makes an instant mix of songs with the current musical feel.

*Integrated Discovery: Predixis opens a ‘Discovery Window’ on the world of music, exposing similar music from mainstream and indie sources for any track listeners browse.

*Added support for UPnP devices: Listeners can now control mixes and playback from the many Universal Plug-And-Play compatible music devices, bringing instant mixes to every room in the house.

*Power Search Capability: Another first by Predixis, the new MusicMagic Mixer allows natural language queries on the facts behind the music. Simple expressions like “rap music by men” work—instantly.

*Power Toys: Power Toy features 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 music library, and Waypoint Mixes, allowing a listener to make a mix, choosing the first and last song.

“Great software comes from great customer feedback and a passionate product team. All of these new innovations and enhancements have been added in response to customer suggestions, and as a result we have just released our most robust application to date.” said Matthew Dunn, CEO of Predixis. “Based on a collection of more than 13 million fingerprinted and analyzed tracks--the largest such set in the world--Predixis’ technology gets just the right music to listeners at just the right moment."

MusicMagic is available for Windows 2000 or XP, Mac OS 10.3 or 10.4, and most Linux distributions (Graphical interface for Linux requires Java 1.4.0_01 or higher, but standalone server does not).
