Frequently asked questions

Is SAM free to use?

Yes. We allow access to our product for free, so that we can demonstrate the popularity and viability of SAM. We can also improve SAM with user feedback. The music generated by SAM is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License.

Will other users be able to see my lyrics, chord progressions, and melodies?

No. When you make a request to SAM, a custom page will be created for that request. That request and page will be removed in 1 hour.

How long does it take to run?

Each request is finished between 30 seconds to 1 minute.

How many requests can I make?

You can make up to 10 requests per hour. Requests will be deleted after 1 hour. If SAM generated something that you like, make sure to download it, or it would be lost forever.

What software can I use to view the XML and MID files?

We recommend using MuseScore to view the XML and MID files. You can also open the MID files in a DAW.

Does SAM violate any copyright laws?

No. Although SAM was trained with hit songs, using copyrighted material for “transformative uses” falls in the Fair Use doctrines under US copyright law. In addition, SAM uses a plagiarism checker to ensure that none of the generated music and lyrics plagiarises from the hit songs. Our plagiarism checker makes SAM one of the most ethical AI music tools ever developed.
