THE BIG STORY
Stability AI releases Stability Audio for music and sound creation
Text, images, and now audio — Generative AI continues to push the boundaries across all mediums. Stability AI just released a new product called Stability Audio that can generate high-quality audio from text prompts.
Here’s what you need to know:
You can feed the app prompts for both music (like classical rock) and sounds (like raindrops on a window).
The platform can generate sounds across any genre and can mix and produce sounds from multiple genres too.
The output can be used for personal entertainment and commercial purposes, like audio content for an ad.
There’s a free version where you can generate 20 tracks of up to 45 seconds for non-commercial use. And the paid version comes with 500 tracks of up to 90 seconds and can be used for commercial purposes.
In our tests we found the tool to be quite capable. While you can’t produce tracks that can compete with professional artists (yet), the quality is more than acceptable for personal and commercial use cases.
You can sample various free tracks or sign up at no cost here.
