I'm looking for software program that can help me find samples within a library which are "similar" to an input sample.

For example, let's say I'm looking for a very particular "snare" sound, and I have a library of 1,000 snare sounds. I know that 2 or 3 of them are close to what I'm looking for but not quite there. I'd like a tool that can find all the "similar" snare sounds within the library given the 2 or 3 that I found manually.

Does something like this exist?

    I think this is a really interesting question. Could it be re-worded to ask if there is a software solution to this problem, rather than asking for a specific piece of software? – Bob Broadley May 25 '18 at 12:39
