Smule allowed us to turn our laziest vocal expressions into songs with their Songify app way back in 2011, now Samsung has apparently gone one step better by allowing us to turn what we hum into a song. Samsung’s secretive C-Lab has come up with ‘Hum On’ an app currently in beta that takes your most minimal vocalizations and turns them into something resembling music.
The app, which is currently in development on Android, allows you to tap the record button and hum a few bars, and the app will convert your vocals into musical notation, and play them back as a MIDI-like recording. You can edit the track if you hit a bum note or two, and you can also change the genre of the song by tapping ‘R&B’, ‘rock’, ‘orchestra’ or so on. In a short demo recently, a developer hummed a few notes into a Samsung smartphone and they were perfectly reproduced on the screen. ‘Hum On’ is early enough in development and there is no word on when it will be released.
