Microsoft Songsmith

There are no words to describe this.  On how many levels can you say, "Lame!!"?

The underlying technology might be cool, but the marketing.................... leaves me without words.

Only from Microsoft!



And as an added bonus, hear what Songsmith does for the Beatles "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band." There are also "interesting" examples from The Police and Van Halen available.



The above is an example of the program used in a way not intended, but it is curious how a software app perceives music differently from genius musicians. It could be a good entry to music for kids, however, but not if MS stays on the same marketing course.
