With Suno.ai, AI-generated music takes a revolutionary new leap forward. Rokk with a metal and hard rock streaming service that will pay artists more. TikTok offers direct links to Spotify, Believe develops new AI music identification technology, and other things signed by Danielle Johansson.
Suno.ai It’s called a new service that combines several artificial intelligence models to be able to create entire songs, including vocals and lyrics, with superior quality compared to previous tools. Researchers from Cambridge in the USA have been working for several years with different models, and in the fall of 2023 they gained a large following on… Sedition.
When they now launch everything as a simple and easy-to-use solution on the web, called Suno.ai, it has attracted a lot of attention because it is possible to create entire songs in a way that was not possible before.
Here’s an example, where I wrote the simple prompt: “80s pop song, singer, electro.”
Behind the scenes he is ChatGPT Which is used to create words in combination with the special form barking, which specifically creates song lyrics and vocals. Added to that chirpthe artificial intelligence model used to generate music.
So the basis is the lyrics, which then creates the song, which then, based on the analysis of what the previous model did, creates the background music that fits the song.
Two completely different versions of each router are created, and the quality varies slightly between the different types. Here’s another example where I wrote the prompt: “A metal song with a fast guitar solo”
The service is now released for free use, where you get 50 points per day for use, and for paid use in a professional version for $8 per month, in addition to the premium version for $24 per month. It is interesting in this context that you also have a layer called Enterprise planwhich can, for example, be used by companies to produce unlimited amounts of new music.
I haven’t yet been able to find exactly what you’ve trained the models on, but in communication across the various forums, it appears that you’ve trained the models primarily on royalty-free music, as well as a catalog that you can own the rights to.
One interesting function is that you can take lyrics from existing songs and feed them to Suno.ai, for example “Lucy in the sky of Diamonds”, and get new songs based on the line of text in the selected genre.
Stone It is the name of the new streaming service created by the German company Fair music. The service focuses on rock and metal music, and aims to generate greater returns for artists.
The basic idea is that by subscribing to a streaming service, metal fans should also be able to support their artists more explicitly, since the royalty pot is primarily for “their” genre and subscription revenue isn’t smeared over a lot of other songs. Music is like the usual big streaming platforms.
Rokk also uses a similar model to Tides Previously used, up to 10 percent of subscription revenue goes directly to the band that was listened to the most in a month.
The cheapest subscription is called Rokk HiFi and includes HiFi quality for all music for 119 SEK per month. The Rokk HiFi Pro costs 219 SEK per month and includes, among other things, FLAC files.
The service itself is described as follows:
“All your favorite bands, every subgenre imaginable, great recommendations and perfect playlists. More Euros per stream for your favorite bands. Live band support. ROKK pays up to 10% per user per month for your favorite band. High-quality audio and streaming Offline.
Initially, the service will be launched in the European Union and the United Kingdom, but will eventually be rolled out worldwide.
Tik Tok It will add an advantage Add to music app Which enables users to “save” songs directly into Spotify And Amazon Music. When you watch a video, you can click on the song and it is added to your “Like” list on Spotify. On Amazon, you can choose which list you want to add songs to.
Initially, the feature will be released in the US and UK, but it is planned to be released in more countries soon. Ole ObermanTikTok’s global head of music says:
TikTok is already the world’s most powerful music discovery and promotion platform, helping artists connect with our global community to drive engagement with their music. Add To Music takes this process a step further, creating a direct link between discovery on TikTok and consumption on the music streaming service, making it easier than ever for music fans to enjoy the full song on the music streaming service of their choice, thus generating greater value. For artists and rights holders.
Warner Music France And Edith Piaf Relatives/family will release an animated film about the singer’s life, and an AI version of Piaf’s voice will be used for narration.
The film is 90 minutes long and is set in Paris and New York during the period from 1920 to 1960. The content is based on her television appearances, photographs, special films and interviews she has given over the years. The soundtrack will consist of Piaf’s songs.
Alan FeeleyCEO of Warner Music France comments on the new film:
Edith is one of France’s greatest artists of all time, and remains a source of great pride for the French people. It is a delicate balancing act when combining new technology with heritage artists, and it was essential for us to work closely with Edith’s estate and treat this project with the utmost respect. Her story deserves to be told, and through this film we will be able to connect with a whole new audience and inspire a new generation of fans.
Tencent Music Entertainment It reported its third quarter this week, posting a profit of $6.4 billion on revenue of $21.5 billion. This is a profit margin that beats most other streaming services, but it is not the first time Tencent has reported profits.
In fact, Tencent Music Entertainment has been profitable every year since 2018, through its streaming services QQ music, Kugou music, Kuwo music, WeSing And Lazy sound.
Tencent saw the strongest growth in paid subscriptions, and at the end of September 2023 it had 245 million paid users, compared to Spotify which had 226 million paid users at the same time.
In total, Tencent had 558 million users of its flagship music service QQ Music, down from the previous year. So it seems that there is now a shift in China from free users to paid QQ users, while some free users are switching to other services.

Distributor BelievesIt is listed on the Paris Stock Exchange and also owns… TuneCoredeveloped a technical solution that, according to them, is able to identify 93 percent of all music that uses transcription, and 98 percent of music created entirely by artificial intelligence.
That was in relation to the third quarter reports Denis LadiguileriBelieve’s CEO revealed the new solution, describing it as “currently in production and working.”
Earlier this year, Ladegaillerie said Believe would try to prevent AI-generated content from being distributed through them: “We do not wish to distribute and do not distribute any content generated 100% by AI.”
Warner Music Group She has joined Universal Music Group, CISAC And so on about the variable distribution model that Deezer It is about to be introduced, first in France and then globally.
The change means that artists must reach 1,000 streams of their music by 500 unique users in one month to receive royalties, streams created in editorial and algorithmic playlists will be worth half that amount, and noise and non-music will be excluded from the playlist. Bowl of Kings.
