Hello everyone! Today, I’d like to talk about two incredibly useful tools for music production: BeatStars and Lemonaide. I’m currently subscribed to the Starter Plan on BeatStars, which grants me 50 Lemonaide credits every month. I can use these credits to generate musical elements via Lemonaide.
Linking BeatStars with Lemonaide
First, you’ll need to create a Lemonaide account through BeatStars and link the two. Once you’ve linked your accounts, you can download the Lemonaide app. I’ve downloaded the Mac version and am quite pleased with its performance.
My Experience with the Lemonaide App
When you open the app, you’ll notice several explanations and prompts, but the interface is intuitive enough for you to dive right in.
Melody & Chords Feature
I initially chose the ‘Melody & Chords’ option. The app then prompts you to select a ‘Mood’—there are various options like ‘chill,’ ‘uplifting,’ and more. Upon pressing the ‘Get Seeds’ button, a selection of melodies is generated for you.
If you find a melody you like, simply press the plus sign, and the melody will be yours, at the expense of some credits.
Experimenting with Moods
I tried both ‘chill’ and ‘uplifting’ moods but didn’t notice much difference between them. I plan to try the ‘Dark’ setting next time to see if it creates a noticeable change.
Exploring Other Options
Aside from ‘Melody & Chords,’ you can also opt to generate just ‘Chords.’ I’m contemplating trying that feature out next.
Lemonaide Tutorial Video
For those interested in a more detailed walkthrough, I’ll also link a Lemonaide tutorial video for you to check out.
Lemonaide is a handy tool, and its integration with BeatStars is seamless. There’s value in trying out various settings to see how it can enrich your music production process. I’m definitely going to experiment more to figure out how to make the most out of these tools for my music.
That’s all for today. Stay tuned for more in the future!
