Apple Rolls Out New App For Musicians

Jan 21, 2016 05:05 AM EST


Good news to all musicians out there. Apple has rolled out its new Music Memos App on Wednesday, which allows both musicians and aspiring musicians to transform a single idea into a whole new composition.

Music Memos is especially made for musicians to hasten their songwriting and demo prowess. Inspired by the built-in Voice Memos app, the app allows musicians to capture their quick riff, melody or lyric ideas just before they slipped out of your mind.

In fact, Voice Memos app has already been used by famous singers like Taylor Swift, who featured three voice memos as pro bono on her 1989 album. In the first place, the app was actually intended for human voice alone and tends to compress files to save space.

Music Memos app, on the other hand, is like "superpower for songs," according to acclaimed singer-songwriter and producer Ryan Adams. It can reportedly record audio music at 24-bit/44.1 kHz and features a built-in tuner (for guitarists) that is also compatible with other instruments.

Aside from that, it also has an impressive analyzing capability on guitar and piano pieces, showing its basic chord notations. If the musician's ears are not satisfied with the raw piece, a simple tap allows them to add accompaniments to their records, giving them an outlook of how the song would probably sound.

"It quite literally blew my mind how Music Memos could transform a single guitar idea into a whole composition with a virtual drummer loose enough that it felt like you were having your mind read by some AI musician and a choice of stand-up or electric bass accompaniment," Adams said.

Apple's built-in mic might be used, but installing an external mic is no problem at all, too. Once finished, they can upload their masterpieces on SoundCloud, YouTube and GarageBand. Full-featured editing is also possible by importing the note into Mac's GarageBand or Logic Pro X.
