I seem to be enjoying this music syndrome which I am going through these past few days. Keeping up with the theme of few of my past posts, here is what I’ve managed to lay my hands on this time. If you feel the need to try composing music but lack the time to learn the art, here is a simpler way out. These free online applications will soothe those itchy nerves down and make the club popping with your tracks.

So all set to be “DJ You” ? Hang on guys, there is a list!
Create music with random clicks across your screen? That seems to be the concept behind this application. Its extremely simple to use, but that wasn’t it for me. What really clicked for me, is somehow it didn’t matter how random the clicks were, it seemed to sound good. It has got a user-friendly interface which is good. You can toggle between 8 sound types as well as mess around with basics like tempo, audio panning, volume settings.
#2. Tone Matrix
It is a simpler version of inudge. It should amuse you for a while when you are overworked. It is not really for serious music editing.
Created by the makers of Tone Matrix, Audiotool is an high-end music mixing software. It’s a virtual DJ console, right to the part of plugging in the wires of additional devices you pull out. If you aren’t familiar with mixing, don’t be worried as there are some fun tutorials as well.
You will get three choices when you will click on the link – Music Studio, Dubstep Studio, and Electro House Blender. Each of them is just as good and easy to use. There is also Charles Ives Music Lab which is made by the same creators. While you are there, don’t forget to check out the playlist of the most popular tracks created on these applications. Addictive!
One of the most popular of all these is Jamstudio and for all the right reasons. It has managed to retain the most important features necessary for music editing – instruments, sound effects and notes. It has over 300,000 users, which is probably a good audience for your grand debut.
So that I guess is a good range for all of you to try. Don’t panic if it seems too complicated because there are tutorials or guidelines given which make it easy to deal with.
I love these innovations like these because you can choose to learn the tricks of a new job everyday.
