A Web Search Engine for Sound Effects
FindSounds.com is the first Web search engine for sound effects. Queries are processed using a selective index of Web audio files that includes sound effects and musical instrument samples but excludes song and speech recordings. A text search retrieves audio files based on how they are labelled, and a “sounds-like” search locates audio files based on sound similarity. Each month FindSounds.com processes more than 1.5 million queries for more than 150,000 Internet users.
