Mubert Gives You Focus Music Created by AI

· · Cool Stuff Found

Mubert is an app that uses AI to generate focus music. By focus music I mean certain sounds that it claims will increase your productivity when you study, work, or do something creative. I don’t know of the science behind this, so it may or may not be a legitimate claim based on evidence. But I do know that sometimes I like to play certain songs as background music when I’m writing. I’ve tried Mubert out and the music it generates is nice to use in that way. The music is electronic, and it’s generated by taking certain patterns typical of electronic music and creating an endless stream of pattern variations. Mubert worked with techno producers to create and sample sounds based on different genres of electronica. App Store: Mubert – Free

SongShift Lets You Transfer Apple Music Playlists to Other Services

· · Cool Stuff Found

There’s an app called SongShift that lets you transfer Apple Music playlists to other services. Supported services include Apple Music, Deezer, Discogs, HypeMachine, LastFM, Napster, Pandora, Spotify, Tidal, and YouTube. You can “shift” complete playlists from one streaming service to another, and automatically keep all of your playlists synced with each other. I’ve heard some Apple customers say that when they unsubscribe from Apple Music, then re-subscribe later on, none of their playlists and content is saved. I’ve never unsubscribed yet so I haven’t run into this issue, but it sounds like SongShift can help in these cases. App Store: SongShift – Free

Want an Apple Music Web Player? Try This

· · Cool Stuff Found

Ever since Apple Music first came out, people have been clamoring for an Apple Music web player. Recently, Apple has opened an Apple Music API for developers. Although Apple hasn’t created an official Apple Music web player, Redditor u/zseguin has come to the rescue. It’s still in early development, but the code is available on GitHub. All you have to do to get started is sign in with your Apple ID, and allow the app to connect to your account. Everything is available. Not only can you find your own music, but even Apple Music recommendations in the For You section. However, note that the player is built on an API that is currently in beta. The application may stop working at any time.

Create a Universal Music Playlist With Soundsgood

· · Cool Stuff Found

Soundsgood is a platform that lets you create a universal music playlist. You can sync your playlists across Spotify, YouTube, Apple Music, Deezer, and more. You can also create an online music player and share it with people. You’ll get a Stats Dashboard so you can see how many people play songs and follow your playlists. I haven’t tried it out yet but I plan to try the service soon. The company markets it as a social player to “get more followers” but I think the cross-platform universality is far more interesting. There also appears to be an iOS app as well.
