Using the power of generative AI, Stable Audio, created by Stability AI, can whip up nearly any sound or song you want with a few simple text prompts. (Keying in “ambient techno, drum machine, peaceful, instrumental,” for example, resulted in a relaxed, new age track that wouldn’t be out of place in a chic lounge.) The model was trained on a dataset from a stock audio website (so it’s all legal), containing more than 800,000 audio files that add up to a collective 20,000 hours, and can be used for both professional and amateur projects.
