Google researchers have created an AI music generator from MusicLM text. And although the company itself has not yet made the program available to the public, it has uploaded a series of samples that were created with the new product.
The generator “writes” several minutes of music based on text prompts or transforms a tune whistled or hummed into a microphone into full instrumental compositions, according to The Verge.
Among the posted examples are 30 second “songs” (no lyrics, just imitation). Also, the show sticks to a certain genre and uses these tools.
If you set the format to story mode, indicating the sequence of certain musical fragments, AI generates a musical mix that is as close as possible to the technical task.
The demo site also features options for 10-second imitations of specific instruments, 30-second pieces of music based on descriptions of famous paintings, and 8-second sketches of a specific genre (there’s even music suitable for jailbreaking or “accordion death” ). -metal”).
From the examples, it can be seen that MusicLM can mimic the human voice, which correctly conveys the overall tone and sound of the voices, even though it’s actually not even a set of words, but rather a set of letters.
Previously, several technology companies have already tried to create such generators: there are programs that are credited with writing pop songs, copying Bach better than a person could do in the 90s, and accompaniment of performances. Live.
One of the latest versions uses the AI StableDiffusion imaging engine to turn text tracks into spectrograms, which are then turned into music.
Google claims that all this is “from the last century” and that MusicLM can beat all other programs in terms of “quality and suitability for the application”, as well as the ability to perceive audio and copy a melody.
However, the company is still cautious about the development: it will not be released to the public due to the “risk of potential misappropriation of creative content.”
Therefore, for the moment, the only people who will be able to use the results of MusicLM’s research and work are other developers of AI music generators: Google is ready to share data for education and peer analysis.
