Is it Really AI Music or Just a Bunch of Presets with a Randomizer?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become an increasingly prevalent term in our modern society. It is touted as a revolutionary technology that can transform various industries, from healthcare and finance to entertainment and marketing. As AI continues to evolve and permeate different sectors, there is an ongoing debate about the authenticity and effectiveness of its applications. In particular, two areas where this debate is prominent are the generation of text and music.


Text AI or Just an Alternative to Research?

Text AI has gained significant popularity in recent years, particularly in the realms of blogging, copywriting, and email communication. Numerous AI-powered tools and platforms claim to generate high-quality content in a matter of minutes, promising to save time and effort for individuals and businesses. These tools often boast sophisticated algorithms that analyze vast amounts of data to create coherent and contextually relevant text.

Critics argue that what these tools produce is not true AI but rather a collection of words and phrases organized into sentences based on user input data. They claim that the AI models used by these platforms are essentially pre-trained with existing texts and templates, and the output generated is merely a combination of those pre-existing elements. These critics argue that such tools lack true creativity and originality, as they are limited to regurgitating information from their pre-existing knowledge base.


AI Music or Just Random Sound & Music Presets?

Similarly, music production AI has witnessed significant advancements in recent years. AI-powered plugins and software claim to assist musicians and producers in creating professional-quality music and songs by providing a range of tools and features. From generating musical ideas and melodies to applying effects and mixing tracks, these AI-based solutions aim to streamline the creative process and spark new musical possibilities.

Much of what these tools produce is not true AI music but rather a collection of sound and/or music presets with a randomizer. The generated music is often a result of predetermined patterns and algorithms, rather than genuine artistic expression. While AI can mimic certain musical styles or genres, it lacks the depth of human emotion and the ability to create truly unique and groundbreaking compositions. AI-generated music may be catchy and pleasant, but it ultimately lacks the soul and authenticity that human musicians bring to their work because it’s just selecting pre-recorded parts based on user settings.



Realistic Expectations for AI

In both text and music production AI, the debate surrounding the authenticity of the technology centers on the notion of creativity. While AI algorithms can process vast amounts of data and produce output that resembles human-generated content, they often lack the true essence of creativity that originates from human emotions, experiences, and individuality.

It is important to acknowledge the progress and potential of AI in these fields. AI-powered tools have undoubtedly increased productivity and efficiency, offering valuable assistance to professionals and novices alike. It is equally crucial to maintain a realistic perspective and not overstate the capabilities of AI. True creativity, originality, and emotional depth are elements that are deeply intertwined with the human experience and cannot be easily replicated or replaced by algorithms.



In conclusion, the question of whether text AI and music production AI are genuinely AI or just a collection of music or word presets with a randomizer is complex and subjective. While these AI-powered tools have undoubtedly made significant advancements, they still have limitations in terms of true creativity and originality. As we continue to explore the possibilities of AI, it is crucial to strike a balance between embracing its potential and recognizing the unique contributions that humans bring to the realms of text and music.
