Auphonic is a service that develops algorithms for music information retrieval and audio signal processing. These algorithms are used to create automatic audio post production web services for podcasts, audio books, lecture recordings, screencasts, and more. The Auphonic API gives developers access to functionality including starting a production using presets, accessing the details for productions and presets and querying existing data. The API uses RESTful calls and responses are formatted in JSON.
Of the many APIs we published this week, ten were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll launch those ten into the spotlight, which included the Sloan Digital Sky Survey API. The SDSS has captured images covering more than a quarter of the sky, containing more than 930,000 galaxies and 120,000 quasars. The API allows developers to do a cone search, retrieving whatever is available for a given position in the sky and a given radius about that position.
Auphonic was founded and developed by deeply talented sound engineers and technologists firmly rooted in all things audio. In its brief existence, Auphonic has developed a partner community dedicated to growing the sound technology world through education and research (i.e. Podlove, Science Park Graz, IEM, and Graz University of Technology).
