Landr pioneered the idea of AI mastering several years ago, and since then has seen other competitors emerge. The latest is a startup called Songmastr. It’s letting people upload up to seven recordings a week for free, with a system of credits purchasing for anyone who wants to do more than that.
A key selling point is that users are encouraged to also choose a reference song that they’d like their track to sound like, either uploading that reference track themselves or picking from Songmastr’s own catalogue.
The latter includes tracks from Calvin Harris, Daft Punk, the Chemical Brothers, Billie Eilish, Queen, Van Halen, A$AP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar, Cardi B and various other artists.
All of which is very interesting, although it perhaps raises some potential licensing questions around the use of those tracks as reference material.
