A New Musical Instrument
MEDALmusic Composer brings the
way you play and compose music to a whole new level...automatically.
your creativity soar...music without limits.
never look at music creation the same way again. Creating complex,
engaging pieces of music has never been easier. The best part
is, make a few adjustments, and you have an entirely new piece
of music! The MEDALmusic Composer lets you create music faster
than you ever thought possible, even if you've never had any
musical training. It's that easy. The music masters would be
the MEDALmusic Composer, the first interactive music composer.
The heart of the MEDALmusic Composer is a self-generating music
composition engine capable of composing virtually millions of
musical themes from a predetermined set of musical parameters.
You tell the MEDALmusic Composer how to create the music based
on any style, type, instrument, instrument mix, pitch, or tempo,
and it will compose your new score in less than ten milliseconds.
Of course, if you want the MEDALmusic Composer to do all the
work, it can create a completely random composition on the fly,
with minimal direction from you.
MEDALmusic Composer's virtually infinite variations on musical
themes can be tied to almost any type of service imaginable.
For mobile and communication devices, it can provide consumer
selectable, distinct, multi-voice musical ring tones for incoming
and outgoing phone calls as well as short "symphonies"
for different interactive functions. For gaming applications,
it can be synchronized with the software, creating distinct,
unique music attributed to specific players, characters, locations,
moods, themes, and emotions.
in real time? We can do that.
MEDALmusic Composer's powerful software engine can be easily
integrated into most chip sets, offering unique music generation
for almost any application. And it can be hosted on most hardware
or server platforms using a minimal amount of processor capacity.
you can dream it, the MEDALmusic Composer can create it, and
you'll be surprised by the results.
MEDALmusic Composer is a new and exciting take on music creation.
Created by music lovers for music lovers. It's a powerful musical
generation engine that can be ported to most configurations
and automatically reacts to a vast array of constantly changing
inputs, creating emotional music in any texture you desire.
It's an entirely new way to dynamically integrate original music
into your systems, software, and services.
The MEDALmusic Composer automatically and instantaneously writes
songs the way a musician does when composing music from scratch.
When musicians compose, they start with an agreeable tune; they
don't know if the tune is the harmony or the melody, or even
where it will finally fit within the song; they just use the
tune as the basis for the song's development. As composers develop
the rest of the song, they constantly modify what they have
written to fine-tune the way the instruments, the harmony, and
the melody are interacting.
MEDALmusic Composer does exactly the same thing. It starts with
a chord progression, writes and rewrites the beginning, middle,
and end until it gets a pleasant, agreeable composition. It
writes an introduction, verse, chorus, and coda (closing) all
in less than ten milliseconds, creating the composition based
on a variable length of the song--from 13 seconds to a full
composition. Through this process, it writes a new song every
time; no song it generates is exactly the same as the previous.
MEDALmusic offers four different ways
to create instant music compositions:
Simply select a desired style of music, press compose, and the
MEDALmusic Composer automatically creates a full musical composition--instantaneously!
Input up to eight notes (in MIDI format) of any original favorite
tune as a seed of inspiration, and the MEDALmusic Composer will
weave harmonious compositions in the flavor of the core eight
Input any full-length original song (in MIDI format), and the
MEDALmusic Composer will output completely new and original
arrangements of the core melody. Input a classical song, and
remix the arrangement to country, rock, or any style desired.
Input any full-length original composition (composed in MIDI
format or through a song created by the MEDALmusic Composer)
and you will have infinite variations of the original song with
the flexibility to change length of composition, lead instrumentation,
key, tempo, or any MIDI variable--all in real time!
can generate millions of unique songs.
Change any one element in the MEDALmusic Composer and another
completely new song can be created.
Compose in ANY style of music: rap, jazz, rock, R&B, punk,
funk, disco, techno, classical, country, even ethnic based.
Produce a full song with less than 128 bytes of information

It functions perfectly with as simple or as complicated an interface
as is necessary or desired.
Whatever the type of input used (even the weather outside, the

color in a scene), the MEDALmusic Composer can create songs
that go perfectly with those situations and modify the songs
accordingly and instantaneously as they change.
