International Soundminer Metadata Standard

soundminer metadata standard - metadata edit window

Soundminer made a lot of effort to standardise the metadata fields of all major global production music and sound labels. When you register new sounds or music files with Soundminer, Soundminer will extract the metadata from the audio files to guarantee compatibility with all major labels and to give access to all metadata fields.

Optimised data fields for music and sounds

The metadata standard stipulates that database tables for production music and sounds should be optimised. The tables for production music include explicit music-related fields like 'composer', 'mood', 'instruments used' or 'artist'. These fields are not relevant for sound archives and are hence not included in the sound tables, which makes searching through large databases faster.

But Soundminer also offers mixed layouts that include all standard metadata fields.

We recommend using this particular layout. Ultimately, though, it's up to the user to pick his/her preferred layout.

Rewire multi-channel playback

Soundminer Multichannel Playback by Rewire

You can play back multi-channel audio material via [SMRPO] and Rewire directly through your editing system. Your playback channels are sent over an internal, invisible cable straight into your editing system.

Then they are played back through your multi-channel audio hardware. The [SMRPO] Playback Module can play back up to 8 (7.1) channels via Rewire. The following formats are supported: M/S, LCR, LCRS, L/R/Ls/Rs, 5.1, 7.1.

Managing metadata with Soundminer V5 Pro

With Soundminer V5 Pro, there are many ways to work with metadata efficiently. Edit and change metadata with the integrated tools. Search and replace text, add categories to a pre-defined list, generate data fields based on other data fields, import pictures, text, and tables.

Soundminer V5 Pro is the software for you if you are struggling with metadata. Leave the struggling to Soundminer V5 Pro.
