Back in October of 2008, our own Christina Warren snagged some beta invites for Mufin‘s web-based service for our readers. Now their crew has now released a public beta version of their desktop player for Windows.

Once you install the player and show it the way to your stash of audio files, and it begins the (lengthy) process of examining each track’s “sound fingerprint.” It can take quite a while for Mufin to complete its analysis, so you might want to relax and check out some Time Wasters while it does its thing.

Suggestions can be made either from your own library or from Mufin.com. Now, they might not always right on target, but I’m not going to hold a grudge against a piece of software that can’t find decent, non-Primus matches for a song like “Here Come the Bastards.” Even if Mufin misses the mark now and then, it’s still a great way to familiarize yourself with new artists.

Apart from recommendations, the player can also analyze a file for artist and track information using AuidioID. You can also let it auto-generate playlists based on a single track, and essential functions like ripping, burning, and copying tracks to an MP3 player are also included.

You’ll need to register for an account in order to take full advantage of the player, so head over to Mufin, sign up, and download the player. More details about the desktop player are available at Mufin.com.
