About Soundraw

Soundraw Shibuya-ku, Tokyo

SOUNDRAW is a music composition service for video creators. Simply specify the genre, the song length and the instruments you want, and the AI will generate music for you based on your needs. You can then choose a song you like from the generated music and customize it further: move the hook (or “high point”) of a song, change the tempo, or change the intensity of a bar to make the music fit your video perfectly.

Key benefits

  • Democratizing music composition
  • Be involved from the beginning
  • We value diversity
