Tech giant Google has launched an AI called MusicLM that generates music from text input.
The content MusicLM is producing what we call generative music.
Music that is created by an algorithm or machine learning model rather than a human composer.
The algorithm can be designed on different musical parameters, such as melody, harmony, rhythm, etc.
In a whole new exciting area in the field of music composition, sound design, gaming, etc.
Now, Google has pushed this area further by introducing a generative music AI.
So, what is MusicLM AI, and why it is so special? Let’s understand the same now in detail.
What is Google’s MusicLM AI?
If we define MusicLM in one line – It is a text-to-music generation system.
The users just have to feed the appropriate text prompts into it and the music will be ready.
After getting the text from the user, MusicLM analyses it and then deciphers it to the appropriate scale and complexity to form the composition.
It is not just limited to text inputs, in fact, it can also capture whistles and hummed melodies to generate the music.
One can instruct it to generate music from a combination of text, pictures, and captions. Also, can ask it to compose specific parts of the music with different instruments and so on.
The text-to-music generation MusicLM AI is trained on 2,80,000 hours of music dataset.
MusicLM is not the first Text To Music Generation AI
While MusicLM right now can generate the most complex compositions, it is not the first AI that can transform text inputs into music.
Open AI and Infact Google already have launched text-to-music generation AI in past. For example, Open AI’s Jukebox, Riffusion, and Google’s AudioLM. But, having a limited dataset these AI can’t generate complex compositions in comparison to Google’s MusicLM.
Google researchers say MusicLM outperforms the earlier AIs in several aspects, such as generating music at 24 kHz that is consistent for several minutes plus the quality of music is also awesome.
How to Access Google’s MusicLM AI?
Well, right now MusicLM AI is available in a few regions, however, Google has invited users to signup for AI Test Kitchen where they can access the MusicLM AI.
So, what are your thoughts about Google’s MusicLM which is a text-to-music generation AI? Let me know in the comments down below.
