At Meta AI, we believe in the power of open source music technology to revolutionize the way music is created and innovated. With our latest introduction, MusicGen, we are harmonizing technology and music like never before.

MusicGen, part of our AudioCraft framework, is an open-source text-to-audio music generation model that has garnered attention in the AI community. This powerful auto-regressive Transformer model has been meticulously trained using 20,000 hours of professionally crafted music data. Now, musicians and creators can generate music based on textual descriptions or audio prompts.

What sets MusicGen apart is its ability to compete with Google’s MusicLM. With features like direct estimation of acoustic feature token sequences, parallel acoustic token sequence estimation, and the capability to generate both unconditional music and music conditioned on melodies, MusicGen offers a limitless creative playground for music enthusiasts.

But that’s not all. We believe in making our technology accessible to all. That’s why MusicGen is open-source, allowing developers to freely access the source code and model weights. With this, MusicGen becomes a versatile tool for music creators and innovators, fueling audio innovation and revolutionizing the landscape of music creation.
