What does artificial intelligence mean for the future of music production? In a new survey, music producers weighed in on AI and whether the burgeoning field will be a friend or foe to their creative ends.
Verses from the contentious AI Drake—among other artists—are blowing up on streaming services, while big tech innovators such as Google are forging the future of text-to-music production with their new generative AI tool, MusicLM.
