The Latest in AI Music + How to Create Your Own
An update on the world of AI generated music
First off – what’s up everyone? I am experimenting with a new newsletter tool called Beehiiv and have switched over from Substack.
So I hope this email finds you.
I wanted to lay out the latest in generative AI for those who liked to stay updated, and also leave a some helpful AI music links below as I get a lot of messages asking how to create AI-assisted tracks.
Now, if you’d rather watch/listen to the content below, I put together a YouTube video for you. Otherwise, read on!
The latest in AI music:
Someone made a ‘greatest hits’ style album for the best AI-assisted Drake music. I actually think that if it was an actual Drake album, it would rank top 3 in his discography. Don’t @ me on that one.
Legendary producer Timbaland got in on the fun, and created a Timbo X Biggie track using one of the Notorious BIG models.
The Verge wrote a fantastic article explaining the legal trap that AI music is setting for Google and other platforms. Actually a fascinating conundrum – highly recommended read.
Speaking of Grimes, because of the industry’s crusade against AI-generated music, her efforts in pioneering the legitimization of it are being hindered.
If you’re interested in creating AI-assisted music, here are helpful links:
‣ The go-to Discord – the community there is at the forefront of building the tools and training the models pushing the movement forward.
‣ An updated Model Tracker
‣ The best model making tutorial I have found
‣ This is a simple GUI I found to replace your vocals but only has a few models and is often busy.
That’s all for now. I’ll update you every month or so on the latest happenings in this space… because it’s moving super fast – and I find the industry’s reaction to it very interesting.
