Recently, Microsoft announced that their AI chatbot, Copilot will create the original songs based on the user prompts. Microsoft Copilot has recently collaborated with Suno, a Cambridge-based AI music creation platform to enhance its capabilities. This latest collaboration enables Microsoft Copilot to generate the short form of songs with just single text prompts.
The generated content consists of instrumentals as well as it also contains developed lyrics and authentic singing voices. Microsoft announced that you don’t need to have a proficiency in music making, you just need to have a skill for fantasizing music.
If you find this concept familiar, it is because Meta and Google have their own versions, such as MusicGen and Instrument Playground. These two alternatives operate similarly but they have their own AI model instead of relying on their party Apps.
For generating creative music, users just need to sign in to their account and enable the plugin Suno, then, users can think of their desired music and describe it in words. Like, you can create the prompts, ‘make the music by using the chirping of the birds’ or ‘create the folk music that is used to call the cattle in Sweden.’ Then, Suno will compose a unique and original song.
Other tech companies like Meta’s open-source Audio Craft are also testing their AI generative tool that generates the song based on the text prompts, as a result, it also generates the original music track.
The users who will use the Suno for free will be restricted from monetizing the AI-generated songs on video and audio platforms like YouTube and Spotify. But they will give commercial rights to their premium users.
One point needs to be noted that users who generate songs for free will have no rights to own the song but Suno will reserve that right. Nevertheless, free users are allowed to share their creations on social platforms or use them for non-commercial purposes.
This Suno technology has been praised for its AI music-generated capabilities that compose creative and unique songs based on user prompts.
CEO of Suno Prithvi Sankar stated that this partnership with Microsoft will bring Suno music generation capabilities to the broader audience.
He further said that he believed that AI has the potential to make it available for everyone to create music and unlock new levels of creativity, and this AI integration will be a major step toward that vision.
Currently, this Suno integration within Copilot is only available for the United States and Canadian users. But Microsoft further plans to expand its availability to other countries very soon.
