Comprehensive workstation for computer aided composition, arrangement and music prototyping. Can understand and interpret music on a high level of abstraction. A chimera of AI-based expert system, sequencer and notation software. A new category in its own that works different than anything else today. Builds on the established consensus of the theory of music. Works for all styles, simple to complex.


Synfire helps you experiment with musical ideas and build memorable themes, harmonies, melodies and textures with personality. It is supportive for beginners and inspiring for pros. An intelligent companion that helps you escape writer's block:

  • Intelligent support for composing music.
  • Combine everything and replace anything at any time. Even harmony. Have fun exploring new ideas.
  • Based on internationally established theory of music.

  • Masters hand-made music as well as synthetic styles. Your music is not cut into blocks and sounds natural and fluid.

  • Helps you develop your own style. Impress yourself with unexpected results.

How Does It Integrate?:

  • Host AU/VST instruments natively or control your DAW with "Drones" (AU/VST/AAX).
  • Play external MIDI hardware.
  • Import MIDI and harvest files.
  • Export MIDI files, MusicXML and LilyPond notation formats.
  • Export MIDI via drag & drop to your DAW.

Synfire is great for film music (movie scores), game soundtracks, orchestral works, piano, electronic and experimental music, jazz, pop, folk, hip hop, drum & bass, latin and all other styles that make use of harmony, melody and structure.
