Survey shows the Love/Hate relationship Music Producers have with AI

A new survey of 1,533 music producers dug into their perspectives and experiences with AI in music production

Conducted by BPB, it offers a data-driven overview of the state of AI, its implications for the future of the music industry, and the love/hate relationship that producers have with it.

Many music producers have already tried AI music production tools, with 86.6% saying that they will eventually replace at least some of the tools that they currently use.

But 73.1% of surveyed also think that AI music generators will at least partially put them out of a job in the future.

Areas where producers see AI taking over include:

  • Effects and mixing processing
  • Mastering services available online
  • Remix and demix processing
  • Sound synthesis and music generation.
