This is an interesting read. What got my attention though was this part: "The company, based in Nashville, says the platform works with an advanced audio identification technology that can detect copyrighted material at the stem level, even if it’s been “chopped, reversed, pitch shifted, time stretched, distorted, and compressed to extreme levels.” That’s a step beyond most identification systems, which can, for example, recognize vocals lifted from a popular song and used in a bootleg, but might not be able to detect those same vocals if they were heavily altered in some way." What I don't know is if they mean that for just the stems that people purchase from the service, or are they talking about any music? I'm assuming it's about the stems, but if not, oh boy that could change a lot. Even then, that would be insane if they could tell what piece of music it is! Imagine you take a sample and add effects but yet it's still recognized? Not good for samplers!
