Using AI to craft beats and compose music

4 min read


In the realm of creativity, artificial intelligence (AI) is hitting the right notes. From transforming visuals to analyzing data, AI's versatility is continually growing, and now it's making its mark on the world of music. Are you curious about AI's potential for creating beats, or even full songs? Let's dive in and find out more.

Can you use AI to make beats?

Indeed, AI's abilities extend to beat creation, thanks to algorithms known as Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs). In the music industry, these AI models are trained on a vast array of beats and rhythms. Once the training phase is complete, these models can create unique and fresh beats, revolutionizing how music is produced.

Even I am still learning about how this model responds, ALL of this tech is extrememly new and can be unpredictable (for now). The idea is to refine it, and teach it enough to bring it to a place that is extremely useful.

This platform ->Mirrorize.ai has this capability through generative AI, allowing users to generate custom beats in minutes. Whether you're a professional music producer seeking inspiration or a beginner exploring beat creation, these AI tools can be a game changer.

Are there other AI music generators?

Yes, several AI music generators exist that can aid in producing tunes. For instance, MuseNet is an AI model trained on a variety of instruments and styles. It can also compose music in countless genres, from classical to pop, and it's just one of many AI music creators.

One of the important things to note and realize is that a lot of these so-called music generators are simply algos picking pre-made samples and choosing based on tempo etc. Mirrorize is a true generator, nothing you hear is ever pre-recorded and will likely be extremely difficult to reproduce even with the same prompt.

Can you make a song with AI?

Absolutely! Visit Mirrorize.ai/music and use AI to compose music based on moods, genres, and themes defined by the user. Many producers will use this as a sampler, a place to generate something they want to hear vs randomly scrolling through youtube.

Beyond creating original music, AI can even generate lyrics. If you have seen tools like LyricStudio, they use AI to help songwriters come up with lines for their next hit, making the song creation process more streamlined and innovative.

How can I learn more about Generating Beats with AI?

AI models are constantly being trained on new data and engineers are always trying to understand them once they have learned what they know. In future blog posts we will feature artist from Mirrorize who are doing amazing things with audio prompt engineering!

Another more advanced approach comes from OpenAI's Jukebox, an AI model trained on music from various artists. It can generate music, including vocals, in the style of these artists, and can even be used to make singers "perform" songs they never actually sang.

The music industry is being reshaped by AI technologies. While AI can't replace the emotional depth and personal touch of human-made music, it can serve as a powerful tool for artists, providing a new layer of possibilities for creativity and expression. The evolution of AI in music creation is an exciting development, and it will be interesting to see how it continues to influence the rhythm of our lives.
