For all other questions, please see below:

How does Create work?

Create listens to the current Stack and uses AI to serve up complementary sounds from across the Splice catalog, so you can make music using samples that belong together—from every style, key, and bpm.

What is a Stack?

A Stack contains up to eight layers, and is created by you with Create. Stacks can be saved, duplicated and shared.

What is a layer?

A layer contains one loop, served up by Create and selected by you, from the Splice catalog. Up to eight layers make up a Stack.

How do I mute, solo and delete layers?

Tap a layer to mute it; long-press to solo. To delete a layer, swipe left, or choose ‘Delete layer’ from the ‘...’ menu.

How do I change the tempo?

You can change the tempo by ±20% in Create. Tap the BPM display button at the top of your Stack, then adjust the tempo slider until it feels right.

How do I save a Stack?

Tap the Save button in the top-right of your Stack. Stacks are saved to your Stacks library.

How do I delete a Stack?

Navigate to the Stacks library, tap the ‘...’ on the Stack you’d like to delete, then tap Delete Stack.

If I swipe past a sound, can I revert back to it?

Yes! Next to the New Stack button you'll find an Undo button, which will undo your most recent action.

How do I find the sounds from my Stack in the Splice catalog?

The easiest way to do this is through the Stacks tab of your Splice Desktop app, which allows you to explore your Stacks and the samples used to make them. Or, to find individual sounds in Splice, tap the ‘...’ icon on the layer in Create, and select “view sample on Splice”. Alternatively, follow the links on your Stack’s share page

How do I match the pitch of my Create Stack in my DAW?


We recommend using the “stems” export function, which will keep the pitch and tempo of the samples in your Stack intact. Once you’ve exported your Stack, simply unzip the downloaded file, and then drag the stems into your DAW.

Do I need an internet connection?

Yes. Disconnecting from wifi or cellular will cause the app to go offline. We recommend that you use Create on a wifi network.

I don't have Ableton. How do I import a Stack into my DAW to start a song?

We recommend using the "stems" export function, which will keep the pitch and tempo of the samples in your Stack intact. Once you've exported your Stack, simply unzip the downloaded file, and then drag the stems into your DAW.

Why did you remove Beatmaker from the Splice Mobile App?

We temporarily removed Beatmaker from the app in order to bring it back bigger, better, and bolder. We want your help shaping the next generation of this feature! To get in touch, tap the “Give Feedback” button in the Profile view and include “I want to help with Beatmaker!” in your response.

What is happening with the CoSo Mobile App?

The CoSo Mobile App is still available for now, however, we recommend switching over to our updated Splice Mobile App for the best experience.

• users without a Splice account

• Splice users without an active subscription

• Splice users who are still on a free trial

If you have a paid subscription to Splice (Sounds+, Creator, or Creator+), you will be granted a non-exclusive, irrevocable license to use the sounds you incorporate into a Stack with Create in perpetuity, and in accordance with the terms set forth in our Terms of Use. Check out our Licensing FAQ for more information about Splice's copyright/licensing terms.

Where do Create's sounds come from?

Create uses loops from the vast Splice sounds catalog. Using Create, you can discover the diversity of Splice sounds while making music.

Is Create available in languages other than English?

Currently, Create is only available in English.

How unique is my Stack?

Because Create leverages the massive Splice catalog and can combine samples across keys and bpm, it’s almost impossible for two people to end up with the same stack.
