Based on my observations of the current exponential development and the results of my recent tests, I can now assert with 99% certainty the following prognostications for the music industry:

- The market for subscription-based library music is poised for obsolescence.
- Corporations will cease purchasing music licenses, given the feasibility of generating high-quality music.
- The creation of advertising jingles, including those with vocals, will be achievable in mere clicks, significantly reducing the fees that music producers can command.
- Analogous to the current situation with images, expenditure on music licenses will become a rarity.
- At least 90% of all commercial music studios will struggle to earn sufficient revenue for sustenance.
- Services like Spotify will be inundated with AI-generated music, which is increasingly indistinguishable from human-composed music (a trend that is already commencing).
- Consequently, manufacturers of digital musical instruments will experience a marked decline in sales.
- Music mastering, which has been predominantly better, faster, and more cost-effective when performed by AI for some time, will continue to evolve in this direction.
- AI services will automatically generate highly professional, detailed sound designs for silent videos based on the video content.
- The question remains as to what roles professional studios will retain—recording? Even this task is now achievable with comparable quality in home studios, and AI services are further optimizing the outcomes.

Although I have always pursued music as a sideline hobby, and thus am only peripherally affected, I am profoundly pessimistic about the future of the entire music market. I am particularly concerned for professional music studios. Within the next 12 months, we can expect the first noticeable changes, with dramatic transformations anticipated over the next 36 months.

Love the new site, and the new music! So fascinated by the music made with AI. What AI software is being most commonly used to generate music? I had no idea. Thanks for everything you do. Best resource on the internet by far!
