Idolumic pairs new TuneSmith with Rhyme Genie 4.0

updated 08:25 pm EST, Mon January 2, 2012

Works with the rhyming software as a plug-in

Songwriters who rely on Rhyme Genie to help them find rhymes and finish lyrics will be getting a free add-on program called TuneSmith that comes with the latest version of Rhyme Genie, now at v4.0. Tunesmith goes beyond the rhyming dictionary and functions as a combination of an advanced lyric editor for multiple projects, a copyright manager and pitch journal that helps writers take a lyric or song project and manage it beyond just its creation.

Tunesmith even features an integrated audio recorder that can capture melodies, and catalogs both lyric revisions and song projects. The software can be used to help remember the writer/publisher split of royalties, oversee copyright registrations and manage recording details. The pitch journal acts like a diary of song submissions to publishers, and also remembers tracking hold periods, release dates and chart positions of the songs.

The add-on requires a licensed version of Rhyme Genie (which costs $25 for the first activation and $8 for subsequent installs on other machines) but is otherwise free and installable on as many computers as the user is licensed for. Rhyme Genie itself is distinguished from competing rhyme dictionaries by being able to go well beyond literal rhymes or syllable matching, allowing users to find things like final syllable rhymes, pararhymes, apocopated rhymes and rhymes based on consonance or assonance among many other variations. The program features over 300,000 entries and has nine million phonetic references.

The program works with both Mac and Windows computers. For the Mac a G4, G5 or Intel processor running 10.5.7 or higher is needed, while Windows requires Windows XP SP3 or later. The company offers free updates to Rhyme Genie for the life of the user's computer. Trial versions are available.
