Adobe Announces Photoshop for Music — Project Music GenAI Control

The tool is "set to change how people create and edit custom audio and music." Sounds familiar.

Adobe jumps on the bandwagon too and creates its own AI music tool, which is pretty much like Photoshop but for... music, following Google with its Music LM, Meta's AudioCraft, and Microsoft's AI music making in Copilot.

The company has introduced Project Music GenAI Control, an innovative AI-powered music generation and editing tool designed to "set to change how people create and edit custom audio and music." Announced at the Hot Pod Summit, this tool empowers creators to not merely generate music from text prompts but control the editing process within the same workflow.

It works like all other generative music AI tools: you just need to enter a text prompt like "sad jazz" or "powerful rock" to generate music tailored to your preferences. Once the audio is generated, creators can fine-tune it, adjusting tempo, structure, intensity, and the repetition of specific sections or extend track length, remix segments, and create seamless loops cater to diverse content requirements.

"With Project Music GenAI Control, generative AI becomes your co-creator. It helps people craft music for their projects, whether they’re broadcasters, or podcasters, or anyone else who needs audio that’s just the right mood, tone, and length," says Nicholas Bryan, one of the creators of the technology in the press release.

He further explains the advanced level of control offered by the tool, stating that "these new tools aren’t just about generating audio—they’re taking it to the level of Photoshop by giving creatives the same kind of deep control to shape, tweak, and edit their audio. It’s a kind of pixel-level control for music."

Customers seem to be less enthusiastic, though. "None of this sounds good, and Adobe Audition has barely been updated for over a year. No AI noise reduction or de-reverb which would ACTUALLY be useful," shares a user on YouTube. "It still sounds like General Midi instruments kit or sample-loop-cds from the 90s and the interviewer had to swallow a big chuckle at the "r&b"-example , but I appreciate the effort," comments another.
