This looks like competition for the established songwriters, and it is conceivable that future hits by the press of a button more or less automatically "written" by the computer. And the typical music consumer would probably not even notice it.
Will the "creative tool", as its makers call it, soon replace the big stars? If you want to get a picture of it, download the app for iOS devices and maybe soon be landing your first No. 1 hit ;-)
