Making A Song With Google Translate and Ableton Live
In this video from Youtuber once upon a synth, we see how the ubiquitous Google Translate can be used alongside Ableton Live to turn a variety of vocal chops into a complete song.
From the video’s description:
Making a song from scratch using Google Translate’s text-to-speech feature. I will sample various words and manipulate them in Ableton Live. I’m also going to use a 606 for drums and a Massive bass patch. Otherwise all sounds will be from TTS. #onesynthchallenge
This goes to show that just about any sound source can be used in musical ways with enough creativity and inspiration. You might try the One Synth Challenge with your favorite synth and see just how far you can take it! You can visit the once upon a synth Youtube channel for more awesome music production videos.
