Motif is a brilliant generative music assistant, fastest way to create a unique melody, build progressions. Create unique, multi part melodies on a scale/mood, build progressions and power through a complete arrangement. All empowered by a state-of-the-art probability algorithm. When you are happy with what you hear, drag to MIDI to use with your own sounds.

"Smart melody generator, now super-powered with real time idea randomisation and compose mode."

Use Popular Moods/Scales or Customize the Base Scale, Make Everything Your Own.

Creating melodies for different scales is fancy, what about emotions? Motif lets you select either a scale or an emotion for any key and uses a smart algorithm within that scale to create a unique melodic idea. You can re-click on the scale or emotion until you like a melody and call it a day or create a progression to further build on the melody into a song.


Layers, Steps & Smart Probability Algorithm.

Motif includes one main (center) and two side layers (low-left & hi-right octaves).

One layer may seem enough when creating melodies but the harmonic possibilities available with more voices in addition to time variances delivers sonics far greater than the parts alone. The time variation allows differing step lengths between the main melody and lower or higher step lengths, for example allowing for faster melody with slower lower octave part - just like different parts in a piece of music.

All New Soundset & Features in v1.5

We just updated Motif to version 1.5 with all new soundset, improved sampler that delivers superior realism and sound clarity. The generation module is fine tuned to produce more musical results with less clutter. We also added note mute, legato and improved MIDI playback including third party MIDI files. We delivered a handful of presets that you can load through your DAW.

Smart randomise the current idea, creating new ideas and versions in real-time, as it flows.

All layer generators are powered with cascade probability algorithms where you can adjust how frequently each layer "should" play. New version brings smart randomisation with knob control to create countless varieties of the root melody. With smart randomisation, all results are more musical and natural. You can even riff with Motif for hours now utilising real time-randomisation.

Power Through an Arrangement with the New Compose Screen

We super-charged the new version with the versatile compose section, ready to flourish your ideas. It comes with intelligent musical modes, smart persistence and proximity parameters, degree and length control on each progression slot.
