Today’s internet startup Roqbot lets you be the DJ at your favorite bars, restaurants, and cafes. With Roqbot you control what’s playing, vote on the queue, and connect with other DJs right from your phone!
Using your phone you can vote for the songs that you would like to have played. A queue will be created and the songs that get the most votes will obviously hit the airwaves first. For this to work, the venue must have implemented the Roqbot technology first. Because Roqbot can be integrated both with Facebook and Twitter, it’s also an excellent promotional tool for venue managers.
Roqbot was founded in 2009 and was officially launched at South by Southwest (SXSW) 2011.
Today’s interner startuo Myna Music can be called a ‘iTunes Genius’ on steroids. Thanks to a wicked smart team of composers and technology, Myna can automatically scan a library of music tracks and make connections based on mood, texture, note pattern, instruments used and more to offer similar songs. No human taggers needed. The solution is even able to look at each individual track at an instrumental level, allowing you to create playlists along the instrumental flow.
The break-through technology behind Myna’s analysis, search, and comparison has been peer-reviewed, published, and presented at prestigious international academic forums including the 2008 International Computer Music Conference (Queen’s University, Belfast); the Institute for Software Integrated Systems, the research arm of the School of Engineering at Vanderbilt University; and the Music and Audio Research Laboratory at NYU, among others.
The company behind Myna Music - Orpheus Media Research, LLC - was formed in 2007. Orpheus Media Research is positioned to become a leader in the automated search, analysis, comparison, and creation of commercial-use music. Driven by a core team of world-class musicians-turned-technologists and -entrepreneurs, OMR is delivering the most flexible and robust solutions for the most serious problems facing the industry today.
