Artificial intelligence has certainly broadened the scope for anyone to do and be anything. From web developers to graphic designers to writers, many people today are exploring the possibilities of this new technology. The latest software, Suno AI, is said to help people achieve their rock star dreams by making music creation accessible to everyone. In March, it released version 3, which enabled people to create full two-minute songs.

What is Shangnuo AI?

Suno positions itself as an AI-powered tool that transforms ideas into fully realized songs while democratizing music production for people of all skill levels. The tool was developed by Anthropic, a company that designs secure artificial intelligence technology. The American startup was reportedly founded by former members of OpenAI.

The team is made up of musicians and artificial intelligence experts from Cambridge, Massachusetts, according to its website. People come from places like Meta, TikTok, and Kensho, where the founding team worked before starting Suno. The co-founders are Mitch Schulman, George Cusco, Martin Camacho and Keenan Freberg.

Suno, which means “listen” in Hindi, has been widely used since the launch of the web application in December 2023 and in partnership with Microsoft, where Suno served as a plug-in for Microsoft Copilot. The startup has only been operating since 2022 and has raised more than $224 million in 58 rounds of funding, with participation from 135 investors, Dataconomy reported.

The partnership between Suno and Microsoft is significant, especially as leading tech giants like Meta and Google increase their focus on consumer AI audio generation technology and often collaborate with niche music tech businesses. “With this partnership, people can easily create fun, clever and personalized songs with simple prompts, regardless of their musical background,” a statement on Microsoft’s website said.

While creating new songs in the style of a specific artist could be “very cool and very fun,” Suno CEO Shulman told Axios that he doesn’t think the experience will be fun for consumers long-term.

“Most people can’t play an instrument and don’t understand complex software, which until now has been a barrier to creating beautiful music. Vocals are [also] A very important ingredient, it is one of [Suno’s] Differentiating factors. “

Is Suno AI free?

In addition to the Pro and Premium versions, Suno AI also offers a free version. The free plan offers 50 points per day, equivalent to 10 songs, while the Pro membership offers 2,500 points or 500 songs per month. The premier plan includes 10,000 points or 2,000 songs and is updated monthly. The Professional plan costs $8 per month and the Advanced plan costs $24 per month, both plans are billed annually.

The main difference between the free and paid plans is that Suno AI retains the copyright to the songs created through the free plan, while users own the rights to the songs created through the paid plan. Creators also have the option to purchase additional credits. The free plan allows two jobs to be run simultaneously, while the paid plan can run ten tasks simultaneously.

The app is said to feature complete songs, including vocals, and customization options to simplify and enhance the music-making process for everyone. It represents the future of musical innovation, where artificial intelligence and human creativity come together to create new melodies. Suno says it gives people the opportunity to try their hand at music-making, regardless of their experience level, from amateurs to professionals.

The new version, released on March 21, reportedly features better sound quality, more styles and genres, and improved instant compliance, including less hallucinations and more elegant endings.

Is Suno AI legal? Who owns the music copyright?

Schulman said the company wants to make music legally and ethically, so it blocks users from uploading other music as samples and pasting in other people’s lyrics.

So when a query containing the name of an existing band is entered, such as “Write me a Radiohead song about AI”, the application rejects the request with the following message: “This content cannot be generated. The song description contains the artist name: Radiohead.”

The co-founder added that even if the model was unrecognizable, “we didn’t want to infringe on his image rights.”

Regardless of which version of Suno is used, users retain all ownership and rights to any original content (including lyrics) they create and input into Suno. Likewise, Suno’s paying subscribers own the artwork that accompanies the songs they generate, but must abide by Suno’s terms of service.

The site issued a disclaimer regarding the AI-generated images: “Please remember that the nature of machine learning means that the output may not be unique to each Suno user, especially if those users entered the same or similar input into Suno Tip, so the artwork generated for other Suno users’ songs may be similar or identical to the artwork generated for your songs.”

Another important aspect it raises is that users may not have comprehensive copyright protection, so it advises members to “consult a qualified attorney to advise you on the latest developments and the extent of copyright protection for output generated using Suno.”
