Meta Unleashes Game-Changing Open Source AI Kit: Transform Text Prompts into Audio
Meta, the owner of Facebook, has unveiled an open-source AudioCraft kit that empowers artists and sound designers to produce audio using AI technology exclusively. This kit bundles three generative AI models: AudioGen, MusicGen, and EnCodec, which enable the creation of sounds from text descriptions, sound effects, music, and sound compression to achieve higher-quality results. With this innovative offering, musicians and sound designers have all the necessary tools at their disposal to compose captivating audio pieces.
The AudioCraft kit comes with pre-trained AudioGen models for those who want to get started quickly, while advanced users can access the entire code and model weighting, allowing for customization and training with their own data. This open-source approach also enables professionals and researchers to train the models according to their specific needs, without the risk of copyright disputes, as all pre-trained models use either publicly available or Meta-owned material.
