Unleash Creativity with Output's Co-Producer Suite: A Deep Dive into Pack Generator

If you’re a music producer, you understand the endless quest for the perfect sound to elevate your tracks. Output, the renowned audio brand, is stepping into the AI music creation arena with its Co-Producer suite. The first jewel in this crown is the Pack Generator – a tool designed to inspire and assist music-makers in crafting unique, royalty-free sample packs effortlessly.

What is Output’s Pack Generator?

 

Imagine a tool that allows you to conjure your ideal sound using simple text descriptions. That’s exactly what Output’s Pack Generator does. This browser-based beta software empowers you to create personalized sample packs by entering prompts that capture the essence of your desired sound, whether it’s a synth chord progression, ambient sounds, or a disco beat.
 

Here’s a breakdown of how Pack Generator works:

  1. Text-Based Description: You input your vision into a straightforward text box, specifying details like genre, key, tempo, and even moods or scenes.
  2. Algorithm Magic: Hit the ‘Generate 4 New Packs’ button, and Output’s algorithm analyzes your text, curating four sample packs in response.
  3. Preview and Download: Each pack comes with a preview track showcasing the sounds. Listen, choose your favorite, and download the 30 royalty-free samples and stems for immediate use in your Digital Audio Workstation (DAW).

Output’s Pack Generator stands out from other AI music tools by aiming to inspire creators rather than replace them. It utilizes a blend of generative AI and authentic audio samples from real musicians, avoiding the use of copyrighted material. The algorithm doesn’t create entirely new samples but intelligently resynthesizes sounds from Output’s extensive library to align with your request.

Gregg Lehrman, CEO of Output, emphasizes the company’s commitment to bridging the gap between AI capabilities and human creativity. He believes AI should streamline the music-making process, freeing creators from mundane tasks like scouring for sounds.
