Recent developments in text-to-music editing, which utilize text prompts to modify music, have opened up unique challenges and opportunities for AI-driven music creation. Traditional approaches have struggled with the need to train specific editing models from scratch, a process that is both resource-intensive and inefficient. Alternatively, using large language models to predict edited music has led to issues with inaccurate audio reconstruction.

Addressing these limitations, a new paper titled Instruct-MusicGen: Unlocking Text-to-Music Editing for Music Language Models via Instruction Tuning presents a novel solution developed by a research team from Queen Mary University of London, Sony AI, and MBZUAI. They introduce Instruct-MusicGen, an innovative method that fine-tunes a pretrained MusicGen model to efficiently follow editing instructions, delivering superior performance across various tasks compared to existing benchmarks.

Instruct-MusicGen adopts an instruction-following tuning strategy for the pretrained MusicGen model, enhancing its ability to adhere to editing directives without needing to…
