Generate 4-minute compositions with 10 different instruments.

MuseNet is a deep neural network developed by OpenAI that generates musical compositions. It operates by learning from a vast amount of MIDI files, absorbing patterns of harmony, rhythm, and style, and then predicting sequences of music.

The AI can manipulate up to 10 different instruments and is capable of blending different musical styles, from Mozart to the Beatles. MuseNet utilizes the same unsupervised technology as GPT-2, which is a large-scale transformer model trained to predict sequences in both audio and text.

Users can interact with MuseNet in both 'simple' and 'advanced' modes to generate new musical compositions. It also features composer and instrumentation tokens to provide more control over the types of music MuseNet generates.

However, it should be noted that MuseNet sometimes struggles with unusual pairings of styles and instruments. It performs better when the selected instruments closely align with a composer's usual style.

Was great while it lasted. Too bad its been down for several months. The closest thing available now is Staccato AI.
