The Google team has introduced new generative artificial intelligence tools for the YouTube video platform, which will allow you to create music tracks using only a text description or a simple melody.
The first tool, called Dream Track, is already available to a small number of YouTube creators in the US, designed to automatically create short 30-second music tracks in the style of famous artists. The service can imitate nine different artists who have agreed to collaborate with YouTube in its development. Among them are Alec Benjamin, Charlie Puth, Charli XCX, Demi Lovato, John Legend, Papoose, Sia, T-Pain and Troye Sivan. The service can generate song lyrics, backing tracks and voices in the style of the artist.
Apart from Dream Track, YouTube also showcased other music AI tools, collectively called Music AI Tools, that let you create music tracks. In one video demo, YouTube shows how the tool can create a saxophone track by combining a melody the user hums with a text prompt that says “saxophone solo.”
The developers promise that participants in the Music AI incubator project will be able to test these tools by the end of 2023.
Interestingly, the announcement comes on the heels of YouTube’s announcement of new rules for working with content created using artificial intelligence.
