Sony Computer Science Laboratories Launches
AI-Assisted Music Production App Flow Machines Mobile

Tokyo, Japan - Sony Computer Science Laboratories, Inc. (Hereinafter referred to as Sony CSL) announced today the launch of an AI-assisted music production app, Flow Machines Mobile (FM Mobile) in Japan and the United States.
To expand the the creativity of music makers with AI, Sony CSL has been conducting Flow Machines(FM) project since 2012. In 2019, Sony CSL launched Flow Machines Professional (FM Pro), a plugin for use in a digital audio workstation (DAW). This technology has been used within the Sony Group, both in Japan and internationally, to produce numerous pieces of music. FM Mobile, the new mobile application for iOS, is a cloud-based AI music production tool compatible with a wide range of DAW plugins.

(FM mobile is also to be released in Europe.)

FM Mobile Features
FM Mobile is an app that assists the music prodution process, an AI that suggests melodies, chords and basslines in the creator's chosen style. To bring that style to life, FM Mobile features a unique concept called Style Palette, which includes a machine learning model that analyzes musical data. You can choose from the various preset palettes created by Sony CSL, or create your own original Style Palette right in the app. This makes the AI to genereate melodies that inspire new ideas, while preserving your own distinct style.

How FM Mobile works
In the FM Mobile app, users select a Style Palette that matches the genre and the chord progession of the song they want to create. When they press the compose button, and the AI will generate 8-bar melodies according to the selected chord progression. There are parameters such as note duration and melodic complexity which allows users to have proposals from AI matching their intention. Users can save their favorite melodies and import them to their DAW using FM Pro. Because FM Mobile data is MIDI data, if they have iPads, they can import those favorite melodies right into Apple's GarageBand.

Music Made with Flow Machines
Along with the release of FM Mobile, Sony CSL released a branding movie of FM that features the song Obscura (feat. HANA), written by Ayatake Ezaki (musician/composer) using FM. Promising young singer HANA participated in this song as a vocalist. Together with this a tutorial movie was released which walks you through the process of how this song was created.

In addition, artist Qiezi Mabo has released 'Midnight Calling,' a new song using FM from Sony Music Labels Inc. 'Qiezi Mabo meets Flow Machines,' an interview video with Qiezi Mabo about FM, can be found on Sony CSL's YouTube page.
