SID theme search engine

Finally! The SID theme finder has been resurrected and upgraded to modern HVSC path names.

This is a musical search engine for SIDs.

Please enter a melody, using the following syntax:

You may use wildcards. A dot (".") matches any note, and a star ("*") matches anything.

(For instance, "feDdfeDdfeDdfeDdfedAa" will find Commando.)

The database was generated from the High Voltage SID Collection v4.6.

Note: This search engine is rather coarse; it will probably return several SIDs that don't sound even remotely like the one you're looking for, and chances are it won't find the one you really want. However, checking out 20 random search results is far better than having to listen to the entire HVSC just to find a tune.

How does it work? ...and why doesn't it find my favourite SID?

You could use this technology to automatically find loop points (the longest repeat of the time examined). Now we can have a player with a working time-slider and DJ mixing.
Also, this can solve a big problem of dups in HSVC.
You can leave only the shortest (code) version of dup'ed tunes.
You could also find extended/remixed versions or similiarity matching. You could convert to MIDI.

You could also quantize notes to perfectize tunes, with buggy players. You could auto-classify 2x players etc. You could auto-detect digis and extract to wav. The problem of melodies bouncing between channels is easily solved - on the other hand, you can intentionally bounce between channels for stereo play mode. You can convert all sidtunes to a universal player format. Try making a universal data format of time,register,value triplets. Compress intelligently. I can imagine algorithms to compress very well....
