No one likes having to deal with copyright issues, so I built a royalty-free cover generator.
What it does
Takes a song name, download a midi instrumental, download lyrics text to speech, and merge them
How I built it
Used php to fetch information and send bash commands to the server.
Challenges I ran into
The online services do not provide lyrics and midi files for all songs. Merging files and dealing with filename quotes were also challenges.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
It works for SOME songs.
What I learned
How to scrape information of the web and run media related bash commands in the backend.
What's next for Song Cover Generator
Finding better services for lyrics and instrumentals, syncing up the singing and music.
