Amadeus Code is an artificial intelligence powered songwriting assistant. Create inspiration, song, and melodies instantly and infinitely. In today’s demo, we import MIDI files exported from the iOS app to create a quick trap track in Ableton Live.
With Amadeus Code, the creation process starts within the app (until we release our VST/AU plugin) but can easily continue in Ableton Live by exporting MIDI files from the app.
Let’s get from this:
in just a few steps!
First, Open Exported MIDI Files
Here’s what you’ll see in the exported folder.
- Harmony MIDI
- Melody MIDI
- .m4a Audio
To import the MIDI files to Ableton Live, create a new song and drag and drop the 2 MIDI files onto the song.
Import MIDI to Ableton Live
Looking good so far!
Next, Assign Instruments
MIDI files from the Amadeus Code app contain program change information. If this conflicts with your synth, we recommend you delete it.
Fire up your favorite synth or keyboard and assign it to the melody and chord tracks. We chose a lead synth from Massive and an electric piano for the chords.
Editing Harmony MIDI
Since you have the chord MIDI file, you can easily edit notes to create a pattern. In our case, we edited the chord into an arpeggio and tuned it an octave higher.
Next, add some bass
Your bass track also can be made with the harmony MIDI file just by creating a new track from the lowest note of the chord.
Since the bass notes are rather long (sustained) in this track, we chose a sound with some character.
Lastly, add a drum loop.
We selected a hip-hop beat and repeated it for the length of the song.
