• Song Robot Teaches “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”

    in Midi,Technology

    After so many replies and interest in the new Song Robot software I recently announced, I’ve decided to do yet another quick demonstration that shows how the software can be used to learn virtually any song you can find (and there’s a good chance you can find ANY song you want on google).

    In this video, I show you in just a few minutes how to find over 4 versions of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” (and that’s just because I stopped looking… there are literally dozens, if not hundreds, out there). I then open them in Song Robot.

    At the end, I let the entire song play through (giving you the opportunity to pick up as many chords and progressions as you want — but you’ll want to get Song Robot so you can have full control to slow it down, change the key, loop certain parts back and forth, and more!)

    Heck, what use is this da**** robot if you don’t offer paypal? I don’t have a creditcard So I can’t buy even if I wanted! Every second day you keep telling me via e-mail just HOW pretty unseful this is. I sent an email, I explained that and why I cannot buy, and the answer was: “no problem!” WHAT?! It IS a problem for me. Pardon me, if you do not care whether people can buy or not, just spare me your constant ads! Are you pulling my leg or what?
    So if you want people to buy, offer the possibilities they can! If you don’t, keep your wonderful robot.
    Not the warmest regards I’m afraid.

    Thanks for your comment and sorry it wasn’t made clear you can purchase at our shopping cart (no video or details but it is purchasable via paypal):


    Sorry for any inconveniences.

    I recently purchased the song robot and I couldn’t possibly be more excited!! I can’t wait to see more updates. If I could make one suggestion…when you try to play a midi file that has drums, horns, etc…you can mute it but the notes still light up as if you haven’t muted it. So you can get confused with all of the notes still being lit up.

    Hey Chevonne…

    There are 3 buttons

    M = mute
    S = solo
    K = keyboard

    Just unhighlight K (green button) for anything you don’t want to show up on the keyboard.

    If you only want to hear 1 or 2 tracks press S to solo them and if you totally don’t want to hear an instrument (or more than one) press M to mute it and also press K to take it off your keyboard screen.

    Dear Jermaine

    I’m very excited after just having watched the updated video (Somewhere over the Rainbow) and am much encouraged by its possibilities. Like Ernesto Sh above, I’m asking if there is any chance of getting a version that can be used on the iPad.
