"Music metadata done right" is Decibel's motto. Decibel provides a music metadata database that is deep and rich with content. The database is linked semantically in order to provide users with song artist as well a location, songwriter, soloist, session information, and more. Data such as this can be implemented for music discovery, research, and analysis. The database contains 12 million tracks sourced from 1.1 million albums by 300,000 artists. Now in it's 3rd version, the data can be programmatically retrieved via the cloud-based Decibel API that is compatible with JSON, SOAP, & XML formats.
