A new AI tool called MusicLM has been released by American tech giant, Google, that allows users to create musical notation from text inputs.
The program, which a group of Google researchers developed, is comparable to ChatGPT, which transforms text commands into stories, or DALL-E, which creates visuals from written suggestions.
The AI program can be used to “turn text input into seconds, and even minutes-long music, as well as turn, hummed melodies into other instruments.” the company stated.
The researchers added; “The audio is generated by providing a sequence of text prompts. These influence how the model continues the semantic tokens derived from the previous caption.”
A “story mode” example is available in addition to the music modulation capability.
In this sample, the model is essentially given various text inputs with time durations for each form of music that needs to be made.
