Meta has introduced AudioCraft, a framework that generates high-quality, realistic audio and music based on brief text descriptions or prompts. The open-source AudioCraft framework includes MusicGen, AudioGen, and EnCodec. MusicGen, an AI-powered music generator, learns from existing music to create similar effects, which has raised ethical and legal concerns related to intellectual property rights. AudioGen, another part of AudioCraft, is designed to produce environmental sounds and sound effects rather than music. EnCodec is an improved version of a previous Meta model, which effectively models audio sequences to create novel audio. While Meta anticipates potential benefits for musicians and composers, it also recognizes the ethical questions, misuse potential, and biases of these models.
