What is SongStarter?

SongStarter is an AI-powered idea generator that acts as your starting point to create new music – all in one easy-to-use interface.

How it works

Click to roll the dice, and our AI will generate three unique musical ideas just for you. Here’s the fun part – for more specific results, you can type in a lyric, emoji, or both (up to 50 characters)! Not feeling any of those initial ideas? Simply click to generate three completely new ones. Keep trying till you get the results you want. Easy! Every musical idea is royalty-free and yours to keep. 

Change the mood

It doesn’t end there. Once you’ve chosen an idea, you can click a special button to select one of three moods (indicated by little day, night, and dusk icons). This gives you a different instrumental take on the same musical composition, so you can find what suits the vibe you’re going for.

Own it, flip it and reverse it

Finally, you can open up your chosen idea in the Mix Editor 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.
