A field guide to the latest music AI tidal wave

February 1, 2023

When we first started embarking on our creative AI research sprint in October 2022, we were mesmerized by the quality and speed of AI models in the visual and text worlds, especially the likes of GPT-3, Stable Diffusion, and Midjourney. In contrast, tools for AI music generation seemed to be falling behind when it came to access to high-quality, large-scale training datasets, leading to outputs that felt overly lossy or generic.

That gap is closing in real time: 10 new AI models for music and audio generation have been unveiled in the last month alone.

This analysis is part of our weekly DAOnload research pulse, which we send exclusively to paying Water & Music members as part of the buildup to our Season 3 launch on creative AI for music.
