Bitshares AI music challenge! Win some BTS for creating music with AI!

in BitShares2 months ago (edited)


Check out, it's an AI based service for generating music from a very basic input such as a topic (like Bitshares), genres (like electronic) and general vibes.

See below, I used this platform to generate a song to encourage Bitshares users to vote for my Astro dev worker proposal, it's quite an impressive service and provides you two versions of each generated song for you to choose from.


You can generate 5 songs (each with 2 variations) for free each day, however you don't retain commercial ownership over the song with a free account.

Here's some of the songs I've generated: Digital Democracy, Binance Blues, Crypto Inferno, Rise of Bitshares, The Bullish Bitmix, Voiceless in the Blockchain, Crypto Hustle, Bitshares Hustle, Bitshares Money

From my limited testing, it's pretty good at generating at least 50 seconds of a track then ends with trailing music. You can continue a song, however you cannot ask the platform to generate further lyrics related to the song - you'll need to use chatgpt or provide your own lyrics.

So let's get to the purpose of this thread already!

Great timing:

Will Ad agency's utilize AI and license their own images/videos/music?

Probably, yeah.

If you've got a group of musicologists who can gauge whether generated audio is legitimately good, then that could save costs on song royalties, plus the song itself might end up succeeding.

The songs I generated took me 5 minutes to create prompts for, it's for sure good enough for 30 second segments. This contest itself it a test of what people can come up with too, it shouldn't take any contestant more than 15 mins to register and enter the contest.
