How Training Data Works for AI Music Models

Updated: Feb 25

Have you ever heard a song and wondered if it was composed by a human or an AI? The lines are blurring as Artificial Intelligence (AI) makes significant strides in the creative realm, particularly in music generation. But how exactly do these AI models learn to create music? At Rightsify/GCX, we're deeply involved in the world of AI music, providing high-quality music datasets to tech companies and training our own models. Today, we'll peel back the curtain and explore the fascinating process of training AI music models.

Data Acquisition and Preparation

Imagine a student learning a new language. They wouldn't just memorize vocabulary lists; they'd also learn how to identify objects, describe actions, and understand grammatical rules. Similarly, AI music models need more than just raw audio data to learn effectively. This is where data labeling comes into play.

Data labeling involves adding meaningful descriptions to the raw music data. These descriptions, called labels, help the AI model understand the various elements and nuances within the music. Here are some examples of how music data can be labeled:

Genre: Pop, rock, classical, etc.

Instruments: Piano, guitar, saxophone, gong, violin, etc.

Mood: Happy, sad, energetic, etc.

Musical elements: Chords, tempo, key, melodies, note swing, time signature, rhythms, etc.

Structural elements: Intro, verse, chorus, bridge, etc.

The quality and detail of these labels significantly impact the learning process. High-quality, accurate labels enable the AI model to:

  • Identify patterns and relationships between different musical elements.

  • Differentiate between various styles and genres.

  • Generate music that is not only technically accurate but also emotionally evocative.

At Rightsify, we understand the critical role of data labeling for AI Music. We employ a team of experienced music professionals to meticulously label our datasets, ensuring the highest level of accuracy and detail. This commitment to quality data labeling is a cornerstone of our success in developing powerful and versatile AI music models.
