Microsoft Presents Songsmith
You know nothing about music, you can't play an instrument, and can't even use your mouse, but still you're determined to create a song? Songsmith is what you need!
At a time when just anyone seems to be placed the front stage, Microsoft introduced a very simple software arranger for lone singers.
Choose a style (Rock, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Reggae, Salsa, RnB, Pop, etc), sing into your PC’s microphone, and Songsmith will create backing music for you.
Musicians can also play instruments right into Songsmith, instead of singing.
If you want to see Songsmith in action, brace yourself for yet another otherworldly Microsoft video.
More info, and a 6-hour trial version available on the Microsoft Research page: research.microsoft.com/en-us.
