What is Create?
Create is a new AI-powered discovery tool that utilizes Splice's legendary sample library to generate unique loop-based ideas. With Create, you can cycle through millions of unique musical combinations, mix and match up to 8 tempo and key-matched layers, and easily export your stacks to the Splice desktop app and CoSo mobile app.
Note: Create is currently still in beta and is only available to a limited amount of users. This feature will be available to everyone in the near future.
Where can I find Create?
On splice.com/sounds, "Create" is the second option under "browse" on the left sidebar. If you're not seeing it there, it will be available soon! Create is currently available to a limited amount of Splice users.
How do I use Create?
Select a style, and Splice's AI will generate a unique stack of loops from sample packs related to that style. Clicking the "refresh" button next to a loop will switch that one out for a new loop of the same instrument/category (drums, keys, etc). Clicking the white refresh button at the top will generate a brand new stack, with all new loops.
Hovering your mouse over a loop will display several options: volume control, a mute button, solo button, delete button, and a "more options" button. The "more options" button is how you can download, like, or add the loop to a collection.
Using the tempo slider above your stack will automatically warp all the loops in the stack to the selected tempo.
How do I save a Stack? Where does it go after it's saved?
Click the blue "save" button and give your Stack a title to save it on your Splice account. Saved stacks will automatically be added to your library on the website, Splice desktop app, and the CoSo mobile app.
Note: saving Stacks is only possible if you have a Splice account.
How do I export a saved Stack?
On splice.com, go to your saved Stacks (Sounds > Your Library > Stacks), and click the blue "View Samples" button on the Stack you want to export. Once you're on the page for that Stack, you'll see a blue "export" button. If you haven't yet purchased the samples in your Stack with credits, using the export function will automatically purchased all the samples in the Stack.
Note: currently Ableton Live 10-11 is the only DAW you can export Stacks to directly. Exporting as stems and to other DAWs will be available in the near future.
Note: You must be subscribed to a paid Splice plan in order to export your Stack.
How do I add a new Layer to a Stack?
Just hover over an empty Layer, select the instrument you want to add, and Splice's AI will find a loop based on the other loops currently in your Stack. Each Stack can have up to 8 Layers.
How do I edit one of my saved Stacks?
On the website, under Sounds > Your Library > Stacks, click the 3 small dots on the Stack you want to edit, and click the edit button. This will take you back to the Create page where you can edit, mix, and modify that Stack.
Note: saving an edited Stack will overwrite the original one.
How do I go to the pack that one of the samples in my Stack is from?
Click the artwork for that loop to go directly to the page for that pack.
I don't have Ableton. How do I import a Stack into my DAW to start a song?
Once you've added the samples in your Stack to your library, you can drag them into your DAW directly through the Splice app by going to Stacks > View Samples and then dragging them over.
Note: these will be the original un-pitched, un-warped samples, so they'll need to be manually warped/pitched in your DAW if you want to re-create the Stack.
Do I own the music I make with Create?
How do I match the pitch of the samples in my DAW to the Stack I made with Create?
When viewing your Stacks in the Splice Desktop app, you’ll see a “Key” column containing the original key of each sample. For any of the samples that were automatically transposed in your Create Stack, you’ll see a +/- offset next to the sample’s key, indicating the number of semitones the sample was transposed. Once you’ve dragged the original sample into your DAW, simply transpose the sample according to the offset noted in the Desktop app, and you’ll hear the sample as it played in your Create Stack.
Can I revert back to the previous loop / Stack before I pressed the shuffle button?
No, the shuffle button acts like a slot machine—push the button and see where Create takes you. It’s best to download/save the loops/Stacks you really love before pressing the shuffle button!
I saved a Stack I just made with Create, why isn't it showing up in the Splice desktop app?
On the Stacks page in the Splice app, hit the refresh button near the top and the app will add your recently-made Stacks.
