Audio file management with a twist: Stem separation and generative AI music

Generic cloud storage apps don’t specialize in audio file management. They tend to have limited playback controls and don’t search through audio file metadata. SoundGen Drive makes it easier to find the right tracks when you need to, with vocal removal, stem isolators, and AI audio continuation.



Target individual audio files in your library and apply stem separation to gain access to the solo instrument tracks.



Pass a melodic audio file into SoundGen’s AI composer to hear new arrangements for that same melody.



Don’t know the words to describe the sound you want? Choose a few basic terms and SoundGen will handle the rest.



SoundGen loads inside of Audio Design Desk, so you can easily drag and drop any file onto the audio timeline.

How does Soundgen work?

Type a description of the music you’d like to generate or select from preset terms and tap the prompt magic feature to turn it into a rich text description. Musicians with existing melodies can upload their own audio files. SoundGen will use the text description to transform the uploaded audio into the preferred style. Short clips can be extended into longer tracks in the same style. Users can import videos and write descriptions of what they see in the video, and SoundGen will create music for them.

What is the SoundGen magic prompt feature?

Sometimes it’s hard to come up with a detailed description of a music idea. To solve this, SoundGen provides a list of terms you can pick from. You can expand on them with your own thoughts or take your best stab at writing something from scratch. Once you have a sentence or two, use the magic prompt tool to generate a full paragraph describing the music you’re requesting in seconds flat.

How can I share or download my generated music? Is my work private or public?

Each song or sound effect you create in SoundGen comes with the option to share publicly. Click on the share icon, located to the right side of each track in your playlist.
