London, UK (Tuesday 23 August, 2022) – Musiio by SoundCloud, the industry leader in AI-powered music metadata, today reveals Moods 3.0, a powerful update to its tagging product that describes musical moods with greater accuracy and nuance. This major feature enhancement has been in high demand for industry leaders who understand that mood-based music recommendations are the future.

Musiio has long offered 15 moods from which the AI would select two per track, but with Moods 3.0, the AI now has 41 individual moods to select from and assigns up to four per track with 95%+ accuracy. These tags are available for sale to companies across the music industry.

Musiio’s 41 new moods make it easier for music curators and sync supervisors to find tracks with exactly the right sound and feel. AI-powered moods are designed for real-world applications with examples such as Mysterious, Playful, Heartfelt, Euphoric and Bold. And the ability to have more moods per track, speaks to growing complexities in the world’s growing global catalogue of music. 

Hazel Savage, VP of Music Intelligence at SoundCloud, says, “Our customers loved our original V1 Mood classifier; it’s been providing solid data on over 1,000,000 tracks a day for two years, but Mood 3.0 demonstrates our commitment to developing and making available the latest in AI technology for the music industry.”

SoundCloud's VP of AI and ML, Aron Pettersson, says, “V1 of Moods is staying, we always keep our Tag API backwards compatible for all clients, but we now have 3.0 for those who want more. The technical challenge was significant, but I’m extremely proud of what the team has achieved.”

Moods 3.0 is available now via Musiio's Tag API.
