Artificial intelligence developer Stability AI has unveiled Stable Audio 2.0, the next iteration of its text-to-music generation system.

The latest version helps artists and musicians with a wider range of creative tools and the ability to produce full-length music tracks “with traditional song structure and high audio quality” using natural language prompts, the company said Wednesday (April 3).

Stable Audio 1.0, released last September, captured attention with its ability to craft short audio clips based on textual descriptions. It was named one of TIME’s Best Inventions of 2023.

The new version expands on this foundation, allowing users to generate complete songs up to three minutes long at 44.1 kHz stereo. This extended timeframe opens doors for a wider variety of musical creations, from full instrumentals to structured compositions with intros, development sections, and outros.

“Stable Audio 2.0 sets a new standard in AI-generated audio,” Stability AI said in a blog post. “The new model introduces audio-to-audio generation by allowing users to upload and transform samples using natural language prompts.

Beyond the increased length, Stable Audio 2.0 also offers other features including new “audio-to-audio” capabilities that allow users to upload their own audio samples to set the style and sound of AI-generated outputs.

“With both text-to-audio and audio-to-audio prompting, users can produce melodies, backing tracks, stems, and sound effects, thus enhancing the creative process.”

The release of Stable Audio 2.0 comes amid a period of internal change at Stability AI. Ed Newton-Rex, the company’s former Vice President of Audio, recently departed due to disagreements over the use of copyrighted materials in training datasets.

“Companies worth billions of dollars are, without permission, training generative AI models on creators’ works, which are then being used to create new content that in many cases can compete with the original works. I don’t see how this can be acceptable in a society that has set up the economics of the creative arts such that creators rely on copyright,” Newton-Rex, who helped develop Stable…
