• Tesla rolls out Holiday Software Update with much-needed and cool new features
  • The Holiday Software Update also introduces the music-making app Trax
  • Tesla owners can now create their own masterpieces while charging or waiting inside their vehicle

Tesla CEO Elon Musk was not kidding when he remarked earlier that the electric vehicle maker is rolling out an important Holiday Software Update. Earlier this week, the company began releasing the new build as an early Christmas present to Tesla owners. But, some owners may not be aware that the new update comes with a new music-making app that could help cure boredom and bring the creativity out of Tesla owners.

Several Tesla owners, including YouTuber Oliver Ryan, discovered that the latest Tesla Software Holiday Update includes the Trax app that helps users create their own music. Unlike other music-making apps, Trax is very easy to use and lets users produce multi-track and keyboard-based compositions that include popular musical instruments like Roland’s TR-808 drum machine, says Engadget. Users can also save their masterpieces in the app and use them later.

Tesla describes this cool feature in the release notes of Tesla Software Holiday Update:

In addition to creating a visual masterpiece with the Tesla Sketchpad, you can now make audio masterpieces with TRAX. Simply add some instruments, adjust the tempo, and record multiple tracks to start creating original music right in your car. Once you are done, SAVE your music and LOAD it for future playback.

Tesla Ceo Elon Musk earlier teased about a fun new music addition coming to Tesla vehicles. Although the majority of the owners are happy and satisfied with getting Spotify, the addition of Trax music-making app is indeed a delightful present. It is worth mentioning that audiophiles are praising the quality of the audio system of Tesla Model 3.

The electric vehicle maker hired engineers who previously worked at Band and Olufsen to create the best audio system they could with off-brand components for a fraction of the cost, says Electrek. The Tesla Model 3 audio system sounds better than the $12,000 Band, and the Olufsen brand on Audi A8 adds the report. With the arrival of Trax, it looks like Tesla Model 3 is dramatically rolling into an interesting music studio.
