Adobe Teases AI-Powered ‘Photoshop for Audio’

Adobe shared this sneak preview of a new project that promises to be a sort of AI-powered Photoshop for audio.

Project Music GenAI Control, an experimental project from Adobe Research, lets users generate music from text prompts, and then provides fine-grained control to edit that audio for their precise needs.

The new tools begin with a text prompt fed into a generative AI model. A user inputs a text prompt, like “powerful rock,” “happy dance,” or “sad jazz” to generate music. Once the tools generate music, fine grained editing is integrated directly into the workflow.

Users can transform their generated audio based on a reference melody; adjust the tempo, structure, and repeating patterns of a piece of music; choose when to increase and decrease the audio’s intensity; extend the length of a clip; re-mix a section; or generate a seamlessly repeatable loop.

“One of the exciting things about these new tools is that they 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,” explains Nicholas Bryan, Senior Research Scientist at Adobe Research.

Project Music GenAI Control is being developed in collaboration with colleagues at the University of California, San Diego, and at the School of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University. Details on availability are to be announced, but Adobe describes this it ‘an early-stage generative AI music generation and editing tool’.
