Songsmith v.2008.12.10.0

Get your first taste of songwriting. Ever sing in the car? Maybe in the shower? You know who you are. Admit it, you like to sing, and you like music. Ever thought of writing your own music? Most people never get a chance to try... but we want to give everyone a piece of the songwriting experience, so welve developed Songsmith, an application that lets you create a complete song just by singing! Are we going to turn you into an award-winning songwriter overnight? Of course not. But Songsmith will give you a way to create something authentically musical and authentically yours, even if you donlt know the first thing about chords or music theory.Itls as simple as clicking orecordo. Just open up Songsmith, choose from one of thirty different musical styles, and press record. Sing whatever you like l a birthday song for Mom, a love song for that special someone (theylll be impressed that you wrote a song for them!), or maybe just try playing with your favorite pop songs. As soon as you press ostopo, Songsmith will generate musical accompaniment to match your voice, and play back your song for you. Itls that simple.Songsmith is for musicians too. For songwriters, is Songsmith going to replace the craft of songwriting? Never. Could it be a super-useful ointelligent scratchpado for exploring new melodies and ideas? Definitely. If youlre a songwriter, youlve probably had the experience of coming up with a melody and finding the nearest object with a orecordo button on it just to get your idea down. Imagine that first quick experience also letting you explore chord progressions, styles, even basic arrangement ideas. Then of course you'd work with other tools, other people, your instruments, and your own musical intuition to really develop a song. But Songsmith can be a great tool that lets you quickly explore new ideas in places where you couldnlt before (on the go, on the bus, in the airport, etc.). And Songsmith works great with instrumental input too!Make it your song. Of course, Songsmithls ideas might not be exactly what you want for your song. Itls music after all, and therels no single right answer. So Songsmith not only comes up with music for your song, but puts you in the driverls seat by letting you customize the chords and arrangement for your song, even if you've never heard of ochordso before. Move the ohappyo and ojazzyo sliders around to get the chords you want. Lock the chords you like and let Songsmith change the ones you donlt. Set up your own custom band. Make it your song!What can I do with the songs I make? Save your songs as audio files to send to your friends and family or post online at social networking sites. Share your Songsmith files with your friends so they can put their ideas into your songs. Even create music videos!Rich instrument sounds make all the difference. Welve partnered with one of the industryls finest digital instrument producers l Garritan l and one of the leading developers of computer synthesizers l Plogue l to provide rich instrumentation for your song. These instruments are the real deal, and you can judge for yourself over at our music page. Change the instruments as much as you like, and if you want even more professional sounds, Songsmith will help you buy additional instruments from Garritan.Styles to suit everyonels taste. Songsmith includes thirty musical styles, from Rock to Hip-Hop to Country to Jazz. Welve tried to span the landscape of musical styles so you can explore a variety of songs, and so a wide variety of folks can enjoy Songsmith. And if you want even more breadth, we've partnered with PG Music l makers of Band-in-a-Box l to allow you to expand your collection of styles by purchasing more styles from PG Music.How do I install Songsmith?

Once the download is complete, open (or double-click) the SongsmithSetup.msi file you just saved to your computer, and youlll be on your way to making music. You can take a peek at the download FAQ while you're waiting for the download to complete.How long does the free trial version work for? The free trial will work for six hours of actual application use. Thatls not six hours from the instant you download it, itls six hours of you really using Songsmith.

All you need is a Windows-based PC and any kind of microphone. A built-in laptop microphone will work, a desktop microphone will work, and a microphone built into a Webcam will work too. In fact you can even run Songsmith without a microphone if you just want to explore the demo songs and get a feel for what Songsmith is all about. But of course youlll want to find a microphone when you're ready to start making your own music!What are the system requirements for Songsmith?
