HumBeatz

Ever thought about how wickedly easy it would be if you could just hum some melody lines into the mic and have the computer play them with the sound of a particular instrument? Yes, maybe making music isn’t supposed to be this easy – but HumBeatz’s creators couldn’t care less, so they made it happen! Next up – hooking up our brains via 1/4-inch cables so we can record music straight from thought.

Running inside your internet browser, cloud-based HumBeatz lets you record hums and whistles, turn them into loops, and assign them to hundreds of MIDI instruments. The software takes advantage of machine learning algorithms, letting you “train” it to specific drum sounds, for example. There’s also a 4-track looper that automatically syncs your recordings. And you can even apply a reverb for some late 80s Phil Collins vibes.

All in all, HumBeatz is a nifty little creation that showcases the powers of modern technology like cloud processing and machine learning. Its developers will probably look into expanding the concept into apps and other forms of native software in the future. In the meantime, you can have lotsa fun with it, and perhaps even sample the stuff you come up with for your productions.
