Generate infinite musical possibilities with SongStarter

Three steps to use SongStarter to kickstart your music creation process.

Finding it impossible to start writing that perfect song, even with a million ideas swirling in your head? Writer’s block is real. Sometimes, you just need a nudge in the right direction. We hear you, and we’ve designed just the solution for your personal eureka moment. Introducing SongStarter.

This AI-powered idea generator acts as your starting point to create new music – all in one easy-to-use interface. The best part? Every musical idea is royalty-free. This means while you won’t own the copyright to the track, you can use it without paying any fees or royalties to the original creator. Sweet!

How to use SongStarter

1. Roll the dice

Pick a song genre on SongStarter before rolling the dice.

Step 1: Before you get started, pick a song genre (or two) to zone in on a vibe. Then tap on ‘Get Started’ to roll the dice.

You can also type in a lyric or emoji (or both) into SongStarter to get started.

Step 2: For more specific results, you can also key in a lyric, an emoji, or both (up to 50 characters).

SongStarter will provide you with three unique musical ideas.

Step 3: Our AI will generate three unique musical ideas just for you. Psst… don’t miss the adorable characters that appear on screen! Their moods correspond to the genres you’ve chosen.

Click the dice icon on SongStarter to roll again for more options.

Step 4: Not feeling any of those ideas? No problem. Simply tap the dice icon to generate three completely new ones. Keep trying till you get the results you want.

2. Change the mood

On SongStarter, you can shuffle between three different moods by clicking the day, night, and dusk icons.

And that’s not all. Once you’ve chosen an idea, you can shuffle between three different moods by tapping on the day, night, and dusk icons on the bottom left of the screen.

This gives you a different instrumental take on the same musical composition, so you can find what suits the vibe you’re going for.

3. Own it, flip it, and reverse it

Finally, you can open up your chosen idea in Studio and take it wherever you want it to go. Use it as a starting point for rapping, songwriting, melody sketching, or jamming with friends – the possibilities are truly endless.
