MXX is a creative AI technology company. We have built the world’s first AI engine that atomises, re-constructs and edits any music to video, instantly.
Our first product is MXX Edit Suite AI, which allows creators everywhere to add amazing commercial soundtracks to their videos through a simple, totally intuitive desktop application. Now, anyone can simply create a brief against short form video with intensity rises, fades, dropouts and climax points, load any track, and immediately listen to the track edited to the brief.
Our patented AI has learned to atomize and re-construct existing music. • Users import any video into the application • Users then create a brief using a simple, shape-based interface for how the music should accompany the video action.
• They then search multiple connected libraries with millions of licensable tracks where any track can be loaded into MXX Audition Pro and auditioned against the brief. In just seconds, MXX Audition Pro edits the track to fit instructions laid down by the user.
• Once the perfect track is found, the track self-edits through the AI engine to match the brief. MXX Edit Suite AI makes responding to the demands of today’s media fast and simple.
