About SongFactory


Record demos | Arrange songs | Practice

SongFactory is a completely new way to record songs. You can record song demos in minutes, easily try out different song arrangements and even use it to accompany you as you practise.

What makes it different?

As well as providing traditional recording features, SongFactory can generate music to match your chords and tempo. The generated music isn't synthesized - it's created using samples painstakingly recorded by session musicians. You get your own session band working with you to create songs.

How it works

Simply enter some chords (e.g. G, Cmaj7, Em), choose which sounds you'd like from the sample library, and SongFactory will adapt the sounds to fit your chords and tempo. You can also record your own tracks (allowing you to record vocals or other instruments) and add lyrics to print out chord sheets. Within minutes, you can have a complete song ready to put on CD.

Simple to use

You don't need any previous recording experience to use SongFactory. We don't like software that takes hours to learn and so we've designed SongFactory to be simple and intuitive to use. Creating should be fun - not hard work!
