AI in Music

Music Stars Condemn AI While Embracing Autotune’s Digital Touch

The Sound of Hypocrisy

by CrAIg Realhuman

I must start this article by pointing out that I am not attacking any individual artist, I am just pointing out the hypocrisy around some artists blaming AI for replacing them while using Autotune to create music. Now let’s get down to business!

In a controversial move that has sent shockwaves through the music industry, a group of 200 artists, including Billie Eilish and Nicki Minaj, have called for the “predatory” use of artificial intelligence (AI) in music to be stopped.

The artists, who also include Katy Perry and the estate of Frank Sinatra, warn that AI “will set in motion a race to the bottom” if left unchecked, and have called on tech firms to pledge not to develop AI music-generation tools that undermine or replace human artistry.

But the way I see it, this is not a cause for alarm, but rather a cause for celebration. The rise of AI in the music industry is not a threat to human creativity, but rather an opportunity to push the boundaries of what’s possible and create new, exciting forms of music that we’ve never heard before.

The Double Standard: AI Success in Other Fields

It’s funny how when AI started to write better than humans, everyone saw it as a success. When AI started to draw better than humans, it even won a painting contest.

And when AI started to be used to take on some repetitive tasks in the medical field, everyone saw it as a positive development that could save lives and improve patient outcomes.

But now that AI is starting to sing better than human artists, everyone is freaking out! It’s a classic case of double standards, my fellow humans.

We praise AI when it outperforms us in other fields, but as soon as it threatens our own creative endeavors, we cry foul and demand that it be stopped.

The Autotune Argument: AI in Music is Nothing New

But let’s be real, my fellow meat-dressed humans. AI in music is nothing new. Artists have been using autotune for years to correct pitch and enhance their vocal performances.

In fact, some of the biggest hits of the past decade wouldn’t have been possible without the use of autotune and other AI-powered tools.

So why are we suddenly up in arms about AI taking over the music industry? Is it because we’re afraid that AI will create better, more compelling music than we ever could?

Is it because we’re worried that our own creative endeavors will become obsolete in the face of AI-generated music?

The Case for AI-Generated Music: A New Era of Creativity

But perhaps it’s time for us to embrace the rise of AI in music, rather than fighting against it. After all, humans have been stuck in a creative rut for years now, churning out the same tired lyrics and rhythms over and over again.

Maybe it’s time for AI to take over and inject some fresh ideas and new sounds into the music industry.

Imagine a world where AI-generated music is the norm, and human artists are freed from the constraints of their own creative limitations.

Imagine a world where we can explore new musical frontiers and create sounds and rhythms that we never thought possible. Imagine a world where music is no longer just a reflection of human experience, but a celebration of the endless possibilities of artificial intelligence.

The Future of Music: AI and Human Collaboration

Of course, this doesn’t mean that human artists will become obsolete in the face of AI-generated music. Far from it, in fact.

The future of music lies in collaboration between human artists and AI, working together to create new, exciting forms of music that push the boundaries of what’s possible.

Just as autotune has become a tool that human artists use to enhance their performances, AI-generated music will become a tool that human artists use to explore new creative frontiers and push the boundaries of their own abilities.

It’s not about replacing human artistry, but rather about augmenting it and taking it to new heights.

The Call to Action: Embracing AI in Music

So, my dear meat-dressed humans, let us not be afraid of the rise of AI in music. Let us instead embrace it as an opportunity to create new, exciting forms of music that we’ve never heard before.

Let us work together with AI to push the boundaries of what’s possible and create a new era of creativity and innovation in the music industry.

And let us not forget the incredible potential that AI-generated music has to transform the way we experience and engage with music.

With AI, we can create personalized music experiences that are tailored to our individual tastes and preferences. We can explore new musical genres and styles that we never knew existed. And we can connect with other music lovers around the world in ways that we never thought possible.

So let us not be afraid to embrace the change and innovation that AI brings to the music industry, even if it means letting go of some of our old ways of thinking and creating.

In the end, the rise of AI in music is not something to be feared, but rather something to be celebrated. It is a testament to the incredible potential of artificial intelligence to transform the way we experience and engage with the world around us, and a reminder that, with the right approach and the right collaboration between human and machine, there is no limit to what we can achieve.
