PROTECT LEGACY CATALOGS

Music Licensors— Ask about Codentity's digital anti-piracy "standards of presentation care".  Helping to bring our patented transition technology to the streaming Web music channels will reduce your exposure to endless Web-wide piracy because overlapped song-to-song transitions produce audio obfuscation—by preventing isolated presentation of individual songs.  If users can't digitally record a "clean copy" of your legacy catalog for sharing, they are more inclined to become purchasers instead of IP pirates.  Learn why tightly programmed transitions benefit Web-casters too.  Contactthayes@codentity.com.

AUTOMATIC MIXING PERFECTION

Patented Codentity® Transition Technology

For music lovers and digital DJs, automatic mixing—that is sequential "automix" operations—in just about every software product, streaming environment, or hardware device requires that the listener and DJ accept the unnatural transitions imposed by the corresponding technology.  Fortunately, Codentity has solved the technical challenges common to music-flow presentation in other products.  Read on.

Other Technologies Are Persistently Problematic

You've been there.  On thousands of streaming Web-music channels, and countless mobile devices, almost every song-to-song transition is served up to the listener with annoying SILENCE GAPS between songs:

1

SONG A Audio Level Fade Out At End

SILENCE

(5 to 10 seconds)

SONG B start normal level

And the automatic mixing results of so-called DSP CROSS FADE methods implemented by several major vendors, and even by some prominent Web-streamers, are very sloppy.  Listeners hear a series of premature fade OUTs, followed by unwanted fade INs.  Here is how the typical CROSS FADE solution presents its brand of 'gapless' transitions:

2

SONG A Audio Level Fade Out At  End

SONG B Audio Level Fade In At Start

Erratic audio level Cross Fades, like the "dip 'n clip" effect above in example 2, do not reproduce music the way the recording artist designed it; and for that reason, it's not how people expect to hear their favorite songs.   (But happily, Codentity's patented music-flow control methods overcome the limitations of existing technology from other companies.  See examples 3 and 4 below.)

By Contrast -- Codentity Methodology Is Consistently Natural

Patented Codentity Transition Technology (CTT)—marketed as True Blend®—is different.  CTT produces a natural song-to-song blend AUTOMATICALLY, and for every transition event.  In situations where, for example, Song A ends with a gradual fade, CTT starts Song B at its normal audio level, and it starts at the point where Song A begins its natural fade out—producing the expected OVERLAP.

3

SONG A Audio Level Fade Out At End

SONG B start normal level

Or for music track pairings where, for example, Song A resolves abruptly (i.e., cold), CTT starts Song B at its normal audio level, and it starts B at the moment Song A concludes—producing the expected tightly ADJOINED transition.

4

SONG A Audio Level Ends Abruptly

SONG B start normal level

As you can see by the examples above, Codentity methodology produces transitions WITHOUT silence gaps, and WITH expected audio levels, while other technologies deliver disruptive silence gaps or strange audio level fluctuations—which are both an indication of poor song boundary calculation.

Codentity Delivers An Enhanced Listening Experience

Codentity Transition Technology is an evolutionary improvement that provides a more desirable listening experience.  CTT eliminates the disruption of glaring silence gaps.  CTT ends the problem of audio level disparities like premature fade OUTS and unwanted fade INS.  CTT stops the practice of arbitrary content deletions used by other designs (including some in-car audio systems) that result to trimming material in order to create a simulated blending effect.

And CTT, if incorporated into the music-flow processing for Web-streamers (think Spotify®, Pandora®, Google®, and others), can reduce listener fatigue; thereby leading to longer TSL (time spent listening) due to improved consumer satisfaction.  For streamers, this could mean better results for ad sales objectives and subscription renewals.

Or if adapted to enhance and smooth music sequencing transitions on smartphone handsets or tablet devices (think Samsung®, Sony®, Apple®, Microsoft®, and others), CTT can give licensees the immediate advantage of a desirable technical distinction (i.e., a feature "selling point"); this can lead to improved sales and a renewed loyalty to the implementing platform.

CTT Available As True Blend® Application On Windows® Platform

Patented Codentity® Transition Technology (U.S. 9,286,942) overcomes the challenges of optimum track duration calculation and audio level presentation—automatically.  This produces naturally-synchronized song-to-song transitions.  And, unlike other products, Codentity® Transition Technology (CTT) does not require assigned song durations, file editing, or fade point encoding.

True Blend® is the trade name assigned to the Windows® platform implementation of CTT—Codentity Transition Technology  Its magic is performed 'live'—in real-time—so there is no need to pre-build music sets, and no performance penalties from wasted CPU cycles typical of simulated cross fade-style DSP (digital signal processing) transitions.  With Codentity Transition Technology, DJs can execute smooth, natural transitions in manual and automix operations.  And on smartphone or streaming Web music platforms, the listener experience is dynamically improved by the elimination of disruptive silence GAPS.  CTT achieves genuine overlapped (or adjoined) audio transitions using TWO independent software players—and WITHOUT crossfades.

Patented Codentity® Transition Technology in our True Blend® software eliminates the awkward audio level problems and unnatural silence gaps commonly heard in DSP-executed crossfades.  True Blend® would dramatically improve the listener experience on smartphones, streaming Web music services, in-car audio systems, and hardware devices.  Contact Codentity® LLC for licensing and partner engagement information:  630-487-0934.

On streaming Web music services, there is almost always a "silence gap" of 5 seconds or more between the end of Song A, and the start of Song B. It is typically heard by the listener as an extended fade-to-silence as Song A ends, followed by a 3 to 5 second audio delay while Song B is buffered.  This form of "loose" audio transitions is disruptive to the music flow, and could cause listeners to search for a more natural and consistent presentation on a different platform.

Patented True Blend® transition technology, if adapted to work with streamer networks, could eliminate the annoying silence GAP heard between buffered songs.

Software media player implementations from Famous Makers offer to perform blended transitions in so-called "crossfade" mode.  Their solutions, while very clever, do not produce the uniform natural song-to-song transitions enjoyed with Codentity True Blend transition technology.  Products from the leading vendors often exhibit "Dip'n Clip" and "Ultra Dip" audio levels effects with their DSP (digital signal processing) designs.

Music APPs and hardware implementations on smartphones almost always insert a "silence gap" of 5 seconds or more between the end of Song A, and the start of Song B. It is typically heard by the listener as an extended fade-to-silence as Song A ends, followed by a 3 to 5 second audio delay while Song B is buffered.  This form of "loose" audio transitions is disruptive to the music flow, and could cause listeners to search for a more natural and consistent presentation.

Patented True Blend® transition technology, if adapted to work with smartphones, could eliminate the annoying silence GAP heard between playlist songs.
