Stability drops a banger
Gm. Controversial subject line today, I know. But I’m sorry, it’s just the truth. With the exception of Wagon Wheel, country music is just inferior to AI music. Disagree? Let me know why in the DMs 👇

Audio Gets A Bit More Stable
Forget all the drama; if there’s one thing that Stability AI can do, it’s produce bangers.
They did it before with Stable Diffusion, conquering the text-to-image space.
Now they are doing it again with Stable Audio, their attempt to conquer the text-to-audio space.
State Of The Art
Audio generation is traditionally tough for AI diffusion models because diffusion are usually trained to generate a fixed-size output. In other words, audio models are decent at producing 30-second soundbites, but bad for producing full songs.
However, Stable Audio is, as the kids say these days, built differently:
It allows for control over the content and length of the generated audio.
It is able to render 95 seconds of stereo audio at a 44.1 kHz sample rate in less than 1 second on an NVIDIA A100 GPU. In English: it is lightning fast.
The key to Stable Audio is a new model design known as latent diffusion, which operates similarly to Stable Diffusion’s art-generating model. Stable Audio starts with a whole bunch of noise, and slowly subtracts sounds until it reaches the desired outcome.
Now, for the important part: how does it sound?
I’ll drop some samples here and let you all be the judge for that one (s/o TechCrunch).
First, a nice ambient techno track:
Next, a trance Ibiza beachy mix:
Finally, something a bit more on the disco side:
So, fire? Or trash?
Respond and let me know!
Why should I care? There’s never been a better time to be artistically and musically challenged.
A Banksy Got Everyday Investors 32% Returns?
Mm-hmm, sure. So, what’s the catch?
We know it may sound too good to be true. But thousands of investors are already smiling all the way to the bank, thanks to the fine-art investing platform Masterworks.
These results aren’t cherry-picking. This is the whole bushel. Masterworks has built a track record of 16 exits, including net returns of +10.4%, +27.3%, and +35.0%, even while financial markets plummeted.
But art? Really? Okay, skeptics, here are the numbers. Contemporary art prices:
outpaced the S&P 500 by 131% over the last 26 years
have the lowest correlation to equities of any asset class
remained stable through the dot-com bubble and ’08 crisis
