Do we really need music apps designed for people with “no talent”?
iPhone app developer TuneAround has released a new $1.99 iApp, SongMaker (App Store link), that’s officially designed for people with “no talent”:
Not good at singing? No talent for music?
Never mind. You can create a song of your own voice with SongMaker even without actually singing.
SongMaker is a “reverse karaoke” app – you sing into it and it makes music that goes along with what you sing. You select a genre and a tempo, and it does the rest.
Now – it used to be that you had to “practice”, “educate yourself” or even “work” in order to make music. Musicians have traditionally embraced these tasks, because they love making music. And it showed in the music that they made.
Now, developers are officially trying to make this all optional.
Does the world need more music apps designed for people with “no talent”? Seems like there are enough musicians with no talent already.
