The SOMeJB Music Digital Library - Architecture


The SOMeJB music digital library system consists of a series of modules. The following sections provide an overview of the architecture of the SOMLib system, giving a somewhat more detailed presentation of the single components. So far, two prototype systems have been developed, with the first one being based on XMMS, a popular open-source media player for feature extraction. The second prototype replaces it by directly accessing the mp3-files, and incorporating sophisticated psycho-acoustic pre-processing to model more closely the perceived sound characteristics.
