Meta’s MusicGen AI Could Revolutionize Music Production

Meta, formerly known as Facebook, has introduced its latest language learning model (LLM) called MusicGen, designed to generate AI-generated music. Developed by Meta’s internal Audiocraft team, MusicGen functions similarly to ChatGPT but focuses on creating music based on text descriptions provided by users.

Users can enter a brief text description specifying the type of music they want to hear, click the “Generate” button, and within a short time, MusicGen produces a 12-second track based on the provided instructions. For instance, a user can request a “lofi slow BPM electro chill [song] with organic samples,” and MusicGen delivers audio reminiscent of the popular YouTube Lofi Girl radio.
