SoundHound Releases New Mobile App for Android - shows Data on Samples Used in Songs


Shazam competitor SoundHound has launched a new feature for its mobile app called The DNA of Music Project that allows users to go deeper with music discovery.

Using WhoSampled's database of information on sample-based music, cover songs, and remixes, SoundHound gives users the option to see tracks that had been used in the song.

This feature is only available on Android devices in the US as of now.

Do you think this is a positive step in music discovery or are we opening up a can of worms, legally? When you consider the legal implications on sample clearences, is this risky?

What do you think?
