Thanks for the explanation.

Well in that case MoodLogic isn't as clever as I first presumed.

How cool would it be for someone to write a application that actually
analyzes a MP3 and detects what "mood" the music fits into? So a ambient
track with no harsh kick drums would be detected and would be assigned
to a "chilled" mood and something with a harsh kickdrum or fast bpm
would be assigned to "energetic" mood?

Am I in gaga land or does this idea have some substance? I feel it would
be technically possible, if challenging as well as VERY useful.

Thanks Oliver :)

MoodLogic doesn't analyze your MP3's for determing the mood. It just
read's the ID3 tags and then conncets to a db for retrieving profiles
for the songs.

You can also profile MP3's yourself and submit them to their database.
By doing this you retrieve some credits for downloading other profiles.

The program itself is free, you only have to pay for credits for
downloading profiles.

Hope that helps

I think MusicMagic (http://music.predixis.com/) does exactly this. I
haven't tried it yet.

It's also neither free nor integrated in SlimServer.

There recently was also a discussion about this in the MoodLogic forums:
