Google is pioneering AI advancements for musical creation on YouTube. These innovations facilitate the generation of musical compositions based on text descriptions and simple tunes, replicating famous artists’ styles and complying with evolving copyright regulations.
Dream Track: Emulating Renowned Artists
Under trial with select US authors, the ‘Dream Track’ feature allows users to create compositions resembling the styles of nine famous artists, including Alec Benjamin, Sia, T-Pain, and others. This feature streamlines the process by handling text generation, phonograms, and voice parts in the chosen artist’s style, with resulting recordings uploaded to YouTube Shorts.
AI Tools Redefining Music Composition
Google is developing AI tools that enable music creation without traditional instruments. These tools transform hummed melodies into specific instrumentations, such as saxophone solos, or convert beatboxing into complete drum loops. MIDI keyboard chords can also be transformed into choir parts, revolutionizing musical composition.
DeepMind’s Lyria Model and SynthID Technology
These advancements are made possible through the implementation of the Lyria music AI model developed by DeepMind, notes NIX Solutions. Compositions created using Lyria are tagged with SynthID technology, ensuring track authenticity even after alterations such as MP3 compression or speed changes.
