nsynth super

NSynth Super is part of an ongoing experiment by Magenta: a research project within Google that explores how machine learning tools can help artists create art and music in new ways.

Rather than combining or blending the sounds, NSynth synthesizes an entirely new sound using the acoustic qualities of the original sounds—so you could get a sound that’s part flute and part sitar all at once.

Like all Magenta projects, NSynth Super is built using open source libraries, including TensorFlow and openFrameworks, to enable a wider community of artists, coders, and researchers to experiment with machine learning in their creative process.

The open source version of the NSynth Super prototype including all of the source code, schematics, and design templates are available for download on GitHub.

Magenta Studio

Magenta Studio is a collection of music plugins built on Magenta’s open source tools and models. They use cutting-edge machine learning techniques for music generation. There’s a bunch of Ableton Live plugins you can download for free.

Plus there’s a Neural Synth Instrument for Ableton or Max you can download as well.
