Splice’s New AI-Powered Music Sketchbook Could Shake Up the Sound Discovery Process – EDM.com

Discovering sounds on Splice will never be the same again.

Splice’s new AI-powered technology, CoSo, completely changes the way music producers and sound designers discover and work with audio. Designed to provide creatives with an easy and efficient way to discover new sounds for their work, the Smart Surface for Music Creation was developed by Splice’s in-house ML&Audio science innovation team.

CoSo is simple to use. Because it combines Complementary Sounds technology with Splice’s vast catalog of sounds, there are billions of possible tonal combinations for producers to discover. To start, users can choose a “style” before CoSo spits out a unique “stack” of loops. Similar to Tinder, users can swipe right for a new sound, left to delete it, tap on a layer to turn it off, or long press to solo it.

After browsing Splice’s extensive sound bank and finding a combination of sounds, the user can import them into their DAW (digital audio workstation).

“I think we’ll hear a richer and more diverse selection of sounds through this technology, that we might surprise creatives with new ideas,” says team leader Ale Koretzky. “Some people will use it to discover sounds and some people will use it to create music. At Splice, we champion the artist and place the human at the center of any canvas. We hope that by embedding discovery , curation and smart creation, we can help creators with instant inspiration wherever they are.”
