Microsoft Songsmith Lets you Create Elevator Music on the Fly!

Have you ever noticed that about half of all the ads Microsoft releases on the Web sound like a joke or a crappy infomercial? I mean, check the following ones out and don’t tell me they didn’t make you feel like crying:

And now, Microsoft has released yet another one — an ad for a new product from their Research Department: Microsoft Songsmith.

Microsoft Songsmith is a software that can generate musical accompaniment to match your voice as you sing. Just choose a musical style and Songsmith will generate music so that you too can feel like one of those people who compose music made especially for elevators. Isn’t that awesome? Hmmmm… not really, no… but it would be a load of fun to joke around with though, don’t you think?
