Swedish Company launches new Music Service

Today the play-it-all Music Service Melodytubes was launched. Melodytubes includes the creation of Playlists with a single mouse click and features new ways to search for almost any song you can imagine while playing the song together with its Lyrics.

November 24, 2010 UTC – The Swedish Company Munax today announced the launch of its new Music Service, Melodytubes ( Melodytubes is a search engine with millions of indexed song texts which may be connected to any number of music sources, regardless if the music is stored on servers on the local area network or on the internet.

“We considered connecting our index to music files stored locally, but decided to include in the first version of Melodytubes a connection to YouTube. We made this decision based on YouTube’s music freshness and our desire to include music videos to enhance the user experience. What’s the point in listening only to music if you have the option to watch video too?”, says Mr. Granlund, co-founder of Munax.

With Melodytubes, music play & search is taken to the next level. Just enter a combination of anything you can remember – a string of lyrics, any part of the artist’s name, or any part of the song title – to instantly find the song you are looking for. Melodytubes’s extensive lyrics index and sophisticated song matching algorithms yield results so uncannily accurate that you will feel as if it has read your mind.

“We call it ‘Music & Song Identification’ and we are the first with this”.

For each song played on Melodytubes, the lyrics are displayed together with the song.

“We were thinking about a lot of names, but because of the possibility of not only listening to the music but watching the video and the songtext as well, on your TV 'tube', we added tube to the name. We also wanted to honor YouTube for their gigantic library of music”.

Melodytubes provides an easy-to-use Playlist Toolbar. The visitor may create as many Playlists as he wants, without the need to register. The Toolbar has familiar control buttons such as ; Play, Pause, Next, Previous and so on, but it also has a couple of unusual ones to help maximize the listening experience. Normally, Playlists are created by the visitor by adding songs from the search results, but with Melodytubes users can also create a Playlist instantly by merely clicking on the button labeled “as Playlist”.

“We have not seen this anywhere else and think it’s a great feature. For instance, you can type in some words you want in the songs in your Playlist, or type in the name of your favorite artist or band, to instantly create a Playlist. For those being even more lazy, you can select the Billboard hot 40 right off the Playlist Toolbar”, says Mr. Granlund.
