Over the years, a large number of high-quality audio software have been introduced that have completely revolutionized the music industry. Today, there is already numerous such software available in the market, and yet more of them are being introduced every day.
Similarly, Chrome has also bought up an audio service called the Chrome Music Lab, which seems similar. However, it is a simple one with around a dozen basic experiments, but it is still a significant first step in this direction.
I love listening to music. If I could lose myself in music and explore its world, I would happily do it. A few days back, I came across a video on YouTube that slowed the beats of my favorite song, making it more soothing. I decided to try my hands at the same!

Chrome Music Lab – Song Maker
One obvious thing as a beginner is that we constantly seek to work on the best possible experiments. And with Chrome Music Lab, our focus mostly goes to the song maker tool.
The Song Maker lets you compose your songs by clicking on the rectangles on the grids. There are a total of 14 rectangles from top to bottom. Each rectangle in the vertical direction plays the notes ‘do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti, do‘ in the bottom-to-top direction.
Besides the play/pause button, there are two more options:
- The first one lets you change the sound of the notes to different instruments such as piano, strings, woodwind, etc.
- The second option, on the other hand, lets you change the sound of the beats.
It has only a few options: electronic, blocks, kit, and Congo. You can also change the tempo of your song by dragging the horizontal blue bar to any specified tempo.
On the right-hand side, there are three more options: Settings, Undo, and Save. The Settings option comes with a few essential options where you might need to make minor changes.
You can change the length of the bars, beats per bar, split beats, scale, start on, and the range of the notes.
Once you’re done creating the music, you can save your track and further share it on Facebook and Twitter. Also, you have to do is copy the link and share it with your friends or family.
All other experiments on Chrome Music Lab follow a similar pattern. You can create new rhythms and tracks and share them with others. You can set the mood on Chrome Music Lab and share it.
For some experiments, such as Spectrogram and Voice Snipper, you need to record the sound from an external source. However, the saving and sharing process for them is also the same as the others.
