Music Production & Songwriting

Writing a song or starting a new track of dance music, or Jazz, R&B, HipHp, Electronic, Pop, LoFi or whatever, is always a chaotic creative process. Synfire can ignite the first spark and act as an intelligent assistant to help you develop your ideas and bring them to life.

With a DAW it's easy to fire up a drum loop, record a bass line and add some sustained chords. Everybody can do this in a few minutes and that's what it sounds like: All the same. Boring. All sorts of styles and genres come and go over time, but at the core it's still the same "secret" that makes the difference. Synfire is a great workbench where you can find these ingredients and put them together.

The Limits Of DAWs

Notes in a DAW are static. Changing the chords of a song after the fact is cumbersome. Replacing an instrumental track with a different phrasing means you have to record it yourself (if you can play it), or draw it manually, note by note (if you can get the rhythm right). And sometimes the best ideas for chord changes or phrasings come when most of a song is already done.

While there are plug-ins that offer help with harmony, they are confined to an isolated window. They can't control your song as a whole. Your leeway to try different variants is severly limited. Some DAWs offer a chord track, but its capabilities are meh. Forcing static notes into a different chord simply doesn't cut it.

And last but not least, having to play everything yourself is not the most inspiring mode of operation. It's easy to get stuck in routine and lose motivation. How often did you leave a song unfinished or compromised because you ran out of ideas, or felt that starting over would be too much of a hassle?
