Sing to Your Computer

THE NEW MIDOMI website searches for songs: all you have to do is sing or hum into your computer's microphone to come up with a list of guesses of the song title.

It failed miserably on all the Latin hymns I hummed, giving me long lists of wildly wrong songs: for example, I hummed Pange lingua gloriosi and it gave me Sting's Roxanne! But it did extremely well on some newer vernacular hymns: giving me the precise song on the first guess.

It probably has a small database of tunes so far, so I would expect it to get better with time.
