Oh man, this will be so awesome! Next we can all start going on to Wikipdedia and just take random excerpts to use as lyrics! Finally, musicians have the answers for making truly unique and amazing music.


You dont actually know what I need it for and btw what should be so wrong with computers "calculating" music

your answer didnt help a bit.

Quote by metal4all

I just learn the formula, apply it to a key, and use said notes on fretboard. Why? Cuz I'm not a pussy.

I actually think this would be a good experimental tool, but only if it;

1. Took notes from a parent scale, including chromatic, depending on what the user chose.
2. Took into account tempo and meter.
3. Randomly spliced the notes into quarter notes, 16th, triplets, quintuplets etc to fill the bar.
4. User chosen length (4, 8, 32 bars etc).

It would also be good if it put out the result in a midi file. And it would also be good to have a "random" feature (obviously with some sort of length limit).

This could be interesting.

Can't stand the idea of computer generated music. It's bad enough that vocals are now computerized with auto-tune, instruments are computerized with sequencers where you're essentially colouring in little squares but now the actual melodies and chords are being computerized??? So wrong in my opinion.
Uploaded some MP3's onto my profile, please check 'em out & let me know what you think! :3

Nice necrobumped thread. Also, are you guys seriously so bad at writing riffs that you need a computer to write them for you? I mean, random will sound random and it would pretty much be the same as if you just noodled around with your guitar. Yeah, it could be cool to experiment with that thing and I'm interested in what the riffs will sound like. But if you want to write songs, use your ears!

Riffs are only as great as the song itself.

Also the notes in a riff are irrelevant. A simple look at classic well known riffs show that note wise there is **** all going on.

It's how you present the riff; sound, dynamics, timing, and the context of a song.

Just take a quick analysis.


Why does the same riff sound shit played back in guitar pro?

It's because there are a million nuances going on, which your ear analysis and feeds back to you in the form of (subconscious) intuition. This omething which all humans have, and thus are "felt" by other humans.

I rest my case.

It's quality over quantity. I'm sure this riff generator can write lots of different sounding riffs but I bet none of them really sounds good. Songwriting takes time and this kind of riff machine isn't making it any easier (unless you are making some really experimental stuff). Song =/= riff. You can write a good sounding riff but finishing a song is a lot harder. I have lots of song intros/riffs but not that many finished songs. You have ears, use them.

I'm willing to bet that there has been at least 1 riff discarded from this thing, which has been used in a (semi) popular song.

The fact that one can play Am - F - C - G for hours without "finding a hit song", but the next artist sells million records with it just proofs it.


I am quite amazed that people lack the observing skill to see this.

Then again hope trumps logic in many things in life it seems.
