Imagine having your own virtual recording studio that can produce royalty-free music on demand using just text prompts.
if you Want a cheerful pop song for a video? Upbeat piano music for a podcast? Somber orchestral melodies for a film? Amper can make it happen.
The AI composes and generates original, royalty-free music based on your text description. For example, prompts like “a 60’s psychedelic rock song with a trippy vibe for a YouTube vlog” or “Sultry piano ballad in the style of Elton John, 2 minutes long” will generate fitting musical compositions tailored to these prompts.
After inputting a genre, mood and instrumentation, Amper’s neural networks produce a unique track using machine learning algorithms. When you say “Playful kids’ pop song,” Amper knows to keep it upbeat with fun synths and hooks. Ask for “Cinematic trailer music” and it delivers sweeping orchestral drama.
It analyzes patterns and structures from millions of existing songs to create cohesive new arrangements from scratch. The compositions incorporate proper musical progression, rhythm and melody – not just random notes. This allows Amper to produce music that sounds fluid, emotive and human-made.
For content creators, you can instantly score productions with tailored, royalty-free music instead of paying for licensing or hiring composers.
It’s like having a robot recording studio and composer at your fingertips.
While it’s convenient and maybe cost-effective for media productions, AI compositions may lack the subtlety and soul of music handcrafted by gifted composers. Still, it’s an impressive feat of technology with many practical applications.
Descript is an AI-powered voice cloning tool that allows anyone to create a digital clone of their voice or someone else’s using just a short audio sample. It also has text-to-speech feature.
It works by analyzing the unique qualities of a person’s voice and using machine learning to generate a synthetic version that sounds just like them.
For example, you can record yourself saying a few sentences, upload the clip to Descript, and the app’s algorithms will recreate their vocal patterns, tone, and inflections. This cloned voice can then be manipulated to say anything you type out. The results are scarily realistic – the cloned voice sounds indistinguishable from an actual recording.
This has some cool applications, like creating personalized audiobook narrations, generating explainer videos, and making video voiceovers using a loved one’s voice.
There are certainly positive use cases, however, there are ethical implications regarding consent and malicious use that must be considered. You should avoid cloning someone’s voice without consent and also avoid using it for deceptive purposes.

Chatgpt has the 3.5 amd GPT4 models. The GPT3.5 model is free to use but with limitations. while the GPT4 has access to extended capabilities through the extension options available for paid users.
Luckily, there are free Chrome extensions that takes the capabilities of Chatgpt from zero to hundred. Two of the most useful extensions are Summary and AIPRM.
Summary is a browser extension that can quickly summarize any web page using ChatGPT’s language skills. It extracts key ideas and talking points into a concise overview, helping you absorb information fast by distilling it down to core concepts. It is particularly useful for research and rapidly grasping what a document is about.
AIPRM takes things further by adding a list of curated prompt templates to chatgpt. These pre-made templates can be used for a variety of tasks like, draft entire blog post, keyword research, social media posts, and creating image prompts and fiction stories.
What I like most about it is that it gives a solid starting point for an article or script that can then be edited and refined by a human author. It queries ChatGPT to flesh out sections with paragraphs on a chosen theme. The AI handles the first draft, while the human provides the creative polish.
Summary and AIPRM demonstrates how AI writing assistants could augment content creation workflows. It’s exciting to see how AI writing & productivity tools complement human creativity and ideation.
Uberduck generates synthetic rap vocals from text lyrics, mimicking the style of famous rappers and singers.
This AI web app allows you to put in a lyric and select an artist to synthesize the vocals. For instance, inputting playful lyrics about “Winnie the Pooh eating honey in the woods” synthesized in the style of Drake produces a realistic rap rendition. The AI mimics the artists’ unique tones and flows, almost like you have all these artists at your beck and call.
With a library of hundreds of artists to choose from, like Eminem and Post Malone to pop stars like Billie Eilish and Ariana Grande, you can even make Frank Sinatra croon a customized song, and many more. The results make you feel like you have these artists on musical command.
While Uberduck hints at an exciting future where customized songs can be synthesized just for us, its advisable to limit this to entertainment (for fans to hear their favorite stars rap or sing anything they desire) and for educational purposes, to avoid legal implications.
