Introduction to AI music

In recent months, the music industry has witnessed a rapid evolution driven by advancements in artificial intelligence (AI). Among the groundbreaking innovations are AI music generation tools like Suno and Udio. These tools have revolutionized music production, inspiring artists and composers worldwide. In this article, we’ll explore the capabilities of these tools, provide a basic step-by-step tutorial, and discuss their impact on music creation.

The Fast Development of AI Music Tools

Suno V3 and Udio represent the cutting edge of AI-driven music composition. Their algorithms analyze vast amounts of existing music, learn patterns, and generate original compositions. Unlike traditional music software, which relies on human input, these tools autonomously create melodies, harmonies, rhythms and even vocals from simple prompts. Let’s dive into how you can use them to create your own music.

Step-by-Step Tutorial: Creating Music with Suno V3 and Udio

  1. Choose Your Style:
    • Both Suno and Udio recognizes various music styles, from classical to electronic. 
    • Find out what style of song you want to generate and write it in the prompt. 
    • Both music generators will suggest a random prompt, like: a song about a reunion of childhood friends, jazz
  2. Input Parameters:
    • Specify parameters like tempo (for example 130BPM), mood (melancolic, happy, uplifting), and instrumentation in the prompt.
    • Suno and Udio will generate a melody and even vocals based on your input. 
    • Suno creates music of about 50 seconds, Udio about 30 seconds, which can be extended later.
  3. Review and Edit:
    • Listen to the two versions of the generated music and decide which sounds better.
    • Generate other versions with the same prompt or extend your favorite songs.
  4. Export Your Composition:
    • Once satisfied, export your composition as an .mp3 file.
    • For further fine tuning edit the music in an AI-based digital audio workstation (DAW) like RipX DAW.

Enhancing Music Production

  • Inspiration: AI tools like Suno and Udio spark creativity. They offer fresh ideas and unexpected chord progressions, pushing artists beyond their comfort zones. Suno has a great function: Explore. Use it to experiment with various genres.
  • Time Efficiency: Instead of spending hours composing, artists can use AI-generated material as a starting point, saving time and energy.
  • Collaboration: AI tools facilitate collaboration between musicians. Imagine a guitarist collaborating with an AI-generated orchestral arrangement!

Legal Usage and Possible Drawbacks

While AI music tools are exciting, they raise legal and ethical questions:

  1. Copyright and Ownership:
    • Who owns the rights to AI-generated music? The artist, the AI, or both?
    • Legally, it’s uncharted territory. Open questions remain about royalties and licensing.
  2. Originality and Plagiarism:
    • Can AI truly create something original, or is it just remixing existing content?
    • Detecting plagiarism in AI-generated music poses challenges.
  3. Loss of Human Touch:
    • Some argue that AI lacks the emotional depth of human composers.
    • Are we sacrificing authenticity for efficiency?
  4. Bias and Representation:
    • AI models learn from existing data, which may perpetuate biases.
    • How do we ensure diversity and fairness in AI-generated music?
  5. Limited Sound Quality:
    • Suno and Udio generates radio quality music, which is far from the professional studio quality (CD quality) at this moment, but these music generation technologies are advancing so fast that CD quality may soon be available for the public. 


Suno and Udio exemplify the fusion of art and technology. As we embrace these tools, let’s explore their potential while remaining vigilant about legal, ethical, and creative implications. The future of music lies at the intersection of human creativity and AI innovation.
