Given Music Ally’s ongoing interest in AI music, the sight of a startup promising “AI-generated trap beats” was bound to get our attention. The startup is called The Trap Factory, based in San Francisco according to its listing on investment database AngelList.
“Want to make trap beats, but have an AI do all the work for you?” asks its blurb. “Press a button, get a beat.” The Trap Factory’s website explains more: people can get the AI to do all the work, or they can upload their own sample (MP3 or WAV) from their computer, Splice or Looperman.
The service is already up and running, so you can give it a try and listen to the results. Also interesting: some of the people behind The Trap Factory. Brett Goldstein was a product manager at Google, working on its AR technology and mentoring startups. Dave Goldblatt, meanwhile, is a former Facebook staffer whose audio startup Wavecut we wrote about a year ago. One to watch, along with all the other AI-music startups we’ve been covering.
