The clue point of similarity is that it works just by comparing two tracks acoustically, not by comparison with a database entry. Musicbrainz IDs are no longer updated, they were replaced by Picard IDs (PUID). Both cover only part of released material. If you are not in mainstream you may get matches for only a a minor fraction of your candidates (I get typically less than 10%). Additionally, the problem of different instances of the same recording (with differing quality) isn't adressed at all.

How about uniquely identifying a song based on discogs release, amplifind id, musicbrainz unique id or such?

Ought to save you lots of scanning.


Main idea of Similarity to don't depend on any Online databases or something. Similarity uses own mechanism of "acoustic fingerprint". Many files don't contain any information ID, they need to calculate this is ID via mathematic. It is time consuming calculation that Similarity can do itself.

So how many of the suggestion are implemented in latest version? Specially inquiring about taking samples at different locations rather then first minute of song. If it is not implemented then is on timeline?

We working on cofigurable comparing algorithm, bu it will be after introducing image comparing.
