    I just found this gem. An AI bot composes unique music based on a few parameters that you choose. It's free for individuals and small businesses (10 or less employees) provided you give proper credit.

    I tried to give a referral link to a friend... it looks like those are broken.

    www.Ampermusic.com It's free.. just have to convert the mp3/wave files. You can make some pretty neat stuff with this site.

    I wish it had some more room for customization.... it's just "pick a style and settle with our best guess"
    but, since it's still in development, I guess it can save you if you're really in a hurry.


    still a couple of centuries away from "Computer, change the clarinet to an oboe...".

    Haha yeah... the advanced options lets you pick instruments and such... but it makes half way decent stuff at least.... best I am going to get anyway.

    Not necessarily. There are plenty of people giving avay their created music for free in this forum, some of them are of very high quality. And not only in this forum. I'm very lazy, so I searched only for music around rpg maker, but I'm sure out there there are way more people with good music, one just needs to search.

    It's very true. I would actually very much prefer something made by a human 99% of the time. This fills a need if you need something unique to your game, but can't afford a commission. Free music is free to all, so it's not unique to your game.

    Well, I gave Amper a try and it seems like it could be good... one day. The way it generates pretty much forces you to use their Pro editor, which is really not all that hard to use once you get used to it. Overall, it has fantastic options, but when it comes to joining two (or more) generated segments together, it just falls flat on its face.You can hear the music changing when it reaches the transition point, but when it reaches the new generated piece, it can be like changing a channel, even if you have it set up with the same style and instruments.

    @taarna23 You might be able to use Audacity to splice two pieces together. That's free too, and easy to use.

    Yeah, but me doing that, the result would be the same. A sudden transition. The point of having the generation software do it is the ability to process the pieces and in an ideal world, seamlessly join them. Either way, I think both services listed in this discussion have great potential, and some traveling to do.

    @taarna23 Yikes! I just read the AMPERMUSIC terms of use and it really looks like it's non-commercial use only. Be careful with that one. You also have to agree to allow the website to harvest data from your pc. That is if I'm reading it correctly.

    I wouldn't touch it with a 20ft pole personally.

    As someone without much of a clue as to how to put together music, I'll say that I kind of like Jukedeck over Ampermusic. Sure Amper gives you a heck of a lot more control over things, but its basic tracks sound very repetitive and boring to me without a lot of tweaking and since I don't really know music that's somewhat akin to me flailing blindly at the controls. Jukedeck's music (so far) seems to actually come out sounding pretty good out of the gate. Though a few more options wouldn't hurt.

    @just1witness Yes, in layman's terms, that's a cookie, or a tracking cookie. That's what they're for. That's why ad services know what you browse and show you stuff relevant to that, or how Facebook tailors what they show you based on what they think you'll like. The information that browsers can access about a system is relatively limited - hardware basics, what browser that your browser claims that it is (this is really easy to change what is sent), what size your screen is. If I had to guess, any data they're collecting is likely going toward marketing (where are people coming here from?) and improving their process. I've noted they also seem to internally catch errors and collect that info for the dev team, as well, which is not a bad thing, and is likely the primary reason hardware/browser info is collected - for debugging purposes.

    However, you're 100% current about non-commercial use only. However, it is also in beta and this is something that will likely change in the future (for a fee, of course).

    @Oliin I think Amper was designed with the idea of creating and linking together short segments of the generated music into a completed song, hence the repetition. However, the part of the process meant to help stitch two segments together still needs work. That said, I, too, prefer Jukedeck.

    This jukedeck thing makes pretty good tunes especially those drum n bass an aggressive synth pop tunes. I didn't really dig tha rock guitar sounds they had there thouh.

    The orchestral action music really doesn't get me pumped but the D&B provides good battle music.

    I just lost a good hour playing with jukedecks. Some of the stuff it creates is pretty fantastic.

    The ambient tracks don't sound dungeon-y enough, so I'm curious about some recommended settings.
