Writing the very first note of a song can be surprisingly difficult. New creators may not know where to start. Inspiration can be hard to come by, even for seasoned designers. Other times, narrowing down one idea in a million can be overwhelming. For creatives eager to get started but need help getting past the blank screen, the BandLab team presents SongStarter, an artificial intelligence-powered musical idea generator within the BandLab platform.


Built in conjunction with Google on TensorFlow, SongStarter generates unique beats, melodies, and chord progressions based on user input. The templates he creates are for users to keep, royalty free, and can be used as a starting point for rapping, songwriting, sketching melodies, or just playing around with friends. SongStarter is now available through desktop browsers and the BandLab mobile app.


To get started, BandLab users simply click the dice icon through the SongStarter interface. For more personalized results, users have the option of entering up to 50 characters of lyrics and emojis. However, no initial input is required. Within seconds, SongStarter will generate three new musical ideas, each completely different from the previous one.


Once the ideas are presented, users can experiment with different moods for each by clicking a button with day, dusk, and night icons. This feature offers different instruments, keys, and beats per minute for the same musical composition, allowing users to select the style that suits them best. Finally, users can open the chosen idea in the BandLab platform’s Mix Editor and tweak it further, or repeat the same phrasing. Alternatively, they can keep rolling the SongStarter dice until they get the results they want.


SongStarter marks the beginning of BandLab’s foray into AI-powered tools to help creators advance in their music-making journeys. Plus, in keeping with BandLab’s mission to break down barriers to music creation, SongStarter is free and easy to use.
