Time for a little AI fun!

Making a modern Pop Song with Band-in-a-Box, ChatGPT, and Synth V

Over the last few months, I’ve heard some amazing songs from the User Showcase, with vocals provided by the amazing SynthV vocal synth. People have been asking us for a tutorial style video showing how to use Band-in-a-Box with SynthV to make a song from scratch.


Here’s a video where we show you how to go from nothing to a finished “radio ready” modern pop song in a 28 minute video.
First off, here’s the finished song, so you get a listen to the finished product. https://demos.pgmusic.com/misc/behindthefame.m4a
If you like it, watch the video. Either way, let’s hear your comments!

On this song, a human wrote the chords and melody.
There are no live musicians or singers on this track.

Chat gpt wrote the lyrics
Band-in-a-Box did the instruments, guitar solo and the harmonies.
SynthV did the vocal (Solara voice)
Final Mix in a DAW (Reaper)

Of course there is still a lot of important, creative human, musical input that goes into this. As you can see in the video, aside from composing the chord progression and melody, decisions regarding arrangement, mixing, tweaking lyrics placements and sounds. I think of it that the AI gets the creativity flowing, allowing the creative musician the tools to go from nothing to a complete song in a very short time!


…. And stay tuned for our next vide uploaded later today, where BiaB also generates the chords and melody!

What a great video! It is highly informative on so many levels and very well put together. I would love to be able to write and produce a song as good as this so quickly! Kudos to the video presenter, too. He has an excellent knack for taking difficult concepts and explaining them in an easy-to-understand way. I found this well worth watching!

I enjoyed watching the video.

I think it is important to note that you began your workflow in Band-in-a-Box and then moved the BiaB tracks to a DAW. That way you create song structure first and use a DAW to embellish the song.

One suggestion. Please add links to ChatGPT and Synth V in the YouTube video description.

That is a very interesting video which has introduced me to a product which I knew little about.
This is the future. It looks like a lot of fun and it might even allow me to write my first opera!<grin>. I was knocked out by this and if pg music are smart they should get on board and develop "Singer In a Box"!
The software price is very reasonable so I'm going to give it a try and see where it takes me. The only downside I can see is that the workflow seems somewhat laborious but should speed up with practice.

This is a fantastic video. I learned a lot!


Why is it that the people who tell me to calm down are the ones who tick me off in the first place!

interesting vid and very neat way of doing a song.

just note many studio rigs includeing mine arent on the net.

heres what i would like to see as add on utilities included in rb (and bb) if poss...i DO realise technically the following might not be doable..so just concepts.

...a vocal generator like in the demo....but in my case back up
male and or female vocs generator actually singing.my lyrics i input..like back up singers one would hear in a band.
even if there are minor artifacts...partial regen could address this ?
ie similar to rt's...user inputs lyrics and output is back up vocs.
reason being i often end up ditching a song concept cos i have no way for example to get femme back up vocs.
a synsy or some kind of ai built in would be nice.

as i said its prolly not doable....but just a hope.
i dont need a lyric generator as i have too many lyric ideas...
but im sure a built in lyric generator would be usefull to pg users.

happiness.

Fantastic! Sounds like Synth V will help create the next Taylor Swift and Beyonce. How do you tour it, and who gets the Grammy?

Great work Peter, i love it. Can I ask though, why not use RB to do the final mix? That would have also added value to RB and a good tutorial on how to mix down in it.

Looks good!

It's enough to give people an idea of what it entails, without getting too bogged down with details.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?
