What is Songsmith?

Songsmith generates musical accompaniment to match a singer’s voice. Just choose a musical style, sing into your PC’s microphone, and Songsmith will create backing music for you. Then share your songs with your friends and family, post your songs online, or create your own music videos.

What is it all about?

Just pick a style for your song…

Choose a tempo…

And sing! Immediately, Songsmith will create music to back up your voice.

And if you want to dig deeper, you can customize your music, even if you don’t know anything about chords or music theory. You can adjust the “happy” and “jazzy” sliders, change styles even after you sing, or set up your own custom band.

And, if you are a musician, there are other features just for you. Edit chords directly, play your instrument into Songsmith instead of singing, or just open up Songsmith and type your own chords to make jam tracks or quick arrangements.
