Amid the trend of fans using AI to create songs with famous singers’ voices, Grimes told fans that anyone is welcome to use her voice in a track and she’ll even split the royalties with them
A week later, the electronic artist has stayed true to her word, making it even easier for her voice to be added into music. Grimes has debuted Elf.Tech, an open-source software program solely dedicated to replicating her voice.
Currently in the beta phase, there have already been 15,000 voice transformations created using Elf.Tech. The software is powered by Triniti, a generative AI model dedicated solely to creating and distributing music.
The way the program works is fairly straightforward: a user inputs a recording of them singing, and the software churns out a rendition of the lyrics in Grimes’ voice.
If a fan chooses to distribute the song online, the same deal previously offered still stands. Grimes will lend her vocal likeness in exchange for 50% of the master recording royalties.
Along with debuting the software, Grimes has said that she’ll be releasing two new songs of her own sometime soon, the aptly-titled “Music for Machines” and “I Wanna Be Software.”
