Hi everyone,

I wanted to introduce you to a new product I’ve developed, I’m hoping it offers something new and useful - Melody Sauce is a Pop/EDM Melody Generator device for Ableton/MaxForLive that generates melodic phrases as MIDI at the click of a button.

It’s designed as a tool to help the music creation process along, offering a quick and unlimited source of melodic ideas. It took about 18 months’ of R&D, analysing chart music with a prof of algorithmic musicology and building complex generative algorithms.

You select a few simple parameters and press generate to create a MIDI clip which appears at the start of the next bar. You can keep doing this to generate and audition phrases on the fly until you generate one you like. None of the melodies are pre-programmed, they are all built each time you click to generate, and the number of permutations are in the millions. Thanks for checking out the demos in the links below:

Tutorial: https://vimeo.com/269467200

I realise this will not be for everyone, but any feedback on whether you think this sounds like a useful product or not would be very gratefully received! I’m currently developing algorithms that will generate chords and beats too.

Thanks for listening :)

So it’s just for melodies ?

Because in the videos the songs also contained chords.

Nice work, by the way.

Thanks musicartist and stefken for taking a look and for your kind words.

Yes it generates the melodies as MIDI - in the demo video the device is generating all the melodies you hear, over a couple of pre-existing/pre-programmed backing tracks (the chords, beats etc.) We are working on chord generator and beat generator tools too.

As M4L doesn't really allow for free demos as such (there are no easy ways to limit a demo, it would have to be the full version for free) there isn't a demo version I'm afraid. I realise this means you'd need to take our word for it but it really does work! :wink:

Thanks again for your helpful feedback.

EVAbeat.
