how ugly do you thing it will look like?
Check out Songsmith here.
This is disgusting.
You've all got to watch this video from Microsoft. A special prize for those who can make it all the way to the end.
Nope, couldn't do it. That's just painful.
I LOVE the MacBook with a flower sticker over the Apple logo.
Wouldn't the title be "Carport Orchestra?"
Is it really from M$?
two points of interest:
1) "So it's from Microsoft. It's pretty easy to use, huh?"
2) they use a MBP
this is a joke, right?
Now I know what REM was singing about. It's the end of the world as we know it.
Granted, the software is kinda cool in a lame Disney way, but those infofilms are horrible, just horrible.
is this like a sesame street episode?????
I made it to the end (I feel really sick though)... what did I win?
Please don't tell me I won a Songsmith Family Pack... but a way to block those images from my memory would be nice now.
Seriously, what a terrible ad & product!
In concept this is actually a great idea.
However, in execution-what the Hell were they thinking? It looks awful, the music it "creates" sounds like midi file you'd find on a Geocities site from 15 years ago, and it doesn't have any of the polish of Garageband '04...
Microsoft officially have the worst marketing department of any company on earth.
Delicious.... Thanks! I still wonder if watching that was worth it... plus I also watched the Seinfeld-Gates saga some months ago... I wish I could turn back time and avoid the whole thing - MS does have the worst marketing dept ever. Do they have the "where do you want to go" slogan? I guess the answer is: AWAY FROM MICROSOFT.
Thanks for the link, Blue Velvet. But there should be some kind of warning, I think. I barely survived this video. I had to gnaw one of my arms off.
Microsoft Corporation, Delivering you another WTF.
That should be there new slogan.
EDIT: This is the link to the store. They are selling this for $30!! Then you have iLife for $79. I know what I would choose.
Wow the last time this much hurt came out of my screen was when I watched those ads of Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld. WTF.
Couldn't do it. The music horrible. And they're discriminating that beautiful MBP
Except for Copysoft's products aren't easy to use.
You'll probably need a good amount of ram to run it since their current OS takes at least 2GB to run smoothly.
Just like M$ todo that.
i tried to stick to it but with 30 sec left it was either shoot myself or stop watching
Here's another one. But this one is much much less completely pathetic.
Anyone see that some guy tried putting the vocals for Runnin' With The Devil into Singstar?
Where's my cookie, and the Xanax to help me recover from that experience?
Is this real?
Seems like a pretty cool app if it works well. Microsoft Research has always had interesting projects going.
I don't understand why some would call it a copy GarageBand. The only thing they have in common is that they are music software.
I would rather call it a Band-in-a-box copy if anything.
They got some pretty cool technology back in the 90s when they bought Blue Ribbon Soundworks (makers of Bars & Pipes for the Amiga). Wouldn't surprise me if some of that was used in this app.
