Music AI Review: Tone Transfer

What it does: You give it some audio, and it changes the audio into an instrument.



There is a website you can play with:
The real power is with the Plug-ins available for your DAW.

I’ve used this to get one of the most realistic saxophone sounds available. Sax samples are notoriously difficult to get to sound good. This does it with relative ease.

If that isn’t mind-blowing enough, you can train your own model by providing at least 10 minutes of the instrument you want to copy and letting it train for a few hours.
If you’re looking for a virtual instrument that no one has sampled yet – this can make them. It can only do instruments that sound one note at a time, so no pianos or guitars.



The saxophone in this example was realized with Tone Transfer. Note it goes below the actual range of the instrument at times. Amazing!

Killer Application: You’re recording Big Band arrangements, but only play the trumpet. You can record the sax and bone lines on the instrument you’re most familiar with, and the feeling will transfer to the new instrument.

Price: Free
Quality: Very High

Happy? HAPPY!

Paradise Found

This piece of music never stops smiling. It is a happy, dancy, and never over-the-top party opener! The bass will move people. I found the “Tropical House” genre on some AI music site, and put this together. Overall, I’m a fan!

Beware Copyright Trolls

A troll carrying a large scroll, with knights that are attacking it trying to get the scroll away from it.

“Copyright Troll” was generated by Midjourney… thereby violating copyrights? Or something? idk


From time to time, copyright claims are made on my music. Sometimes they’re copyright trolls. Sometimes they’re well-intentioned people who don’t read the fine print and create chaos. It’s like playing whack-a-mole….

Please contest any content ID claims you may get with courage! To my knowledge, no copyright strikes are in effect for anything I’ve written. Be prepared to send a lot of strongly worded emails and do a lot of sleuthing to find out the real source of the trouble. If you need help on this quest, let me know!

How to Post Your Music to the Public Domain – for free

I’ve been getting quite a few emails from people asking me how they can get their music published without having to spend money on bandwidth and servers. Most publishing sites are set up to make money from artists, and some can be quite expensive – which is stupid if you’re just trying to give away your music for free.

I put together a quick-to-read document on how to publish new music into the Public Domain using only free services. Spoiler Alert: It is mostly Pixabay.

I want to thank all the composers out there who want to share their music and help build a dynamic and modern Public Domain of creations that will accelerate all of art!

Music Catalog Available for any AI Training Project

Attention AI Researchers and really, just anyone who trains these things:

I really like what you folks are doing, but there are complaints rumbling over at the Music Publisher’s Association that training on their property would mean infringing the United States Copyright Act’s reproduction right.

In contrast, my music would love to live in your training set!

The dataset is 4 days of music, about 1800 files, and includes some metadata.
