Udio launches AI music creation app with the backing of will.i.am

Udio is the latest artificial intelligence (AI) powered music program to be launched, and the reaction to the app suggests it could make a big impact on the market.

With the ability to โ€œcapture emotionโ€ in synthetic vocals, Udio has already gained the backing of some heavyweight figures in the music industry.

As detailed in the press release to introduce the app, producers such as will.i.am, Common and Tay Keith have contributed to the creation of this service which โ€œleverages AI to easily create extraordinary and original musicโ€.

It has been developed by former Google DeepMind researchers to put professional quality into the hands of anyone to create meaningful music in an accessible way. Full audio tracks can be generated in under 40 seconds.

David Ding, Co-founder and CEO of Udio, stated โ€œThere is nothing available that comes close to the ease of use, voice quality and musicality of what weโ€™ve achieved with Udio โ€“ itโ€™s a real testament to the folks we have involved.โ€

โ€œAt every stage of development, we talked to people in the industry about how we could bring this technology to market in a way that benefits both artists and musicians,โ€ he added.

A realistic AI music creation tool

In less than a minute, Udio can get to work to create an impressive track that is said to meet professional standards with its sound quality and range of features.

Users can simply enter a description of the genre they want, providing the subject or personalized lyrics they want the song to contain with the added bonus of an indicator from artists that โ€œinspireโ€.

Ryan Morrison of Tom Guideโ€™s described Udio as โ€œthe most realistic AI music creation tool Iโ€™ve triedโ€.

He continued, โ€œThe ability to capture not just the emotion of a song but also generate both the bizarre and unexpected while maintaining musical fidelity and cohesion is astounding.โ€
