Idolumic has created a rhyming dictionary application called Rhyme Genie that is compatible with the Mac OS X, iOS, and Microsoft Windows operating systems. When it was originally made available to the public in 2009, it was hailed as the world’s first dynamic rhyming dictionary. It had more than 9 million phonetic references, 300,000 entries, and 30 distinct patterns of rhyme. An intelligent rhyme algorithm is one of the primary features of the software. This algorithm gives users the ability to find near rhymes, which are also known as half or slant rhymes, by adjusting the degree to which the word they are searching for and potential rhyme mates sound similar to one another.
The Mac version of the rhyming dictionary is supported as a plug-in by Rhyme Genie 4.0, which was made available for purchase and download in January of 2012 as part of the Rhyme Genie 4.0 update. TuneSmith is the name of the new companion songwriting program. Idolumic’s TuneSmith is a program that helps songwriters create and manage their songs by providing tools such as a sophisticated lyrics editor, a copyright tracker, and a pitch log. The program was developed by Idolumic.  The copyright tracker that TuneSmith provides allows users to keep tabs on the writer and publisher shares of copyright splits and monitor the copyright registrations of songs that have been uploaded. A melody may be recorded via an inbuilt audio recorder, or it can preserve commercially published studio recordings in AIFF, WAVE, or MP3 format. In addition, songwriters are able to monitor hold times, release dates, and chart positions of songs that they have pitched with the use of a pitch notebook. You can learn more here.
