We’ve written about startup WaveAI in recent months, with its plans to launch an AI-music-creation app called Alysia. This week, the app went live on Apple’s App Store for iPhones and iPads.

It’s pitched at music fans as well as musicians: they can choose background music in a range of styles and genres, then generate melodies AND lyrics using its artificial-intelligence technology, before recording their voice or having Alysia do the singing for them too. The app is being pitched partly as a way for non-musicians to create songs, and partly as a way for professionals to get out of a writer’s-block situation. The app can export tracks as full songs, and also as WAV and MIDI stems to work on elsewhere.

The business model is freemium: the app is free, but users buy ‘tokens’ as in-app purchases: starting at £0.99 for 100 and rising to £99.99 for 13,000. Those tokens are used to unlock features within the app – for example, it costs 250 tokens to unlock the ‘AutoVoice’ feature where Alysia sings a song. Is it good?
