What is Suno? Exploring the Viral AI Song Generator and Free Usage Guide 

It’s time to take an in-depth look into AI music generators. Generative AI has produced some remarkably similar to human artistic works since ChatGPT first appeared on the public’s radar in November 2022. Suno, an Intelligence-powered song generator, is the latest instrument that has become viral.  

 Artificial intelligence music generators are nothing new; examples include YouTube’s Dream Track and Voicify AI (now Jammable) and Adobe’s Project Music GenAI. However, Suno is different in that it can generate anything from basic prompts, including song lyrics, singing, and instrumentation. You can also direct it toward the genre you’re interested in, such as electronic chillwave or Delta Blues. 

 Using an unrestricted account, you may now compose entire two-minute songs in Suno’s new V3 format. According to the category you select, the outcomes can vary, but Suno has the potential to produce some very impressive outcomes. 

 However, what is the precise mechanism of Suno’s operation, who is the rightful owner of the music it generates, and how can one begin producing their robo-rock? We have provided all the answers you need to dive deeply into the bizarre world of artificial intelligence-generated music.  


 Suno, a web-based text-to-music generator, can quickly compose entire songs with just a written prompt. You may instruct it to create a “psychedelic British garage song regarding an acquaintance with a Nokia fixation,” and it will produce a few two-minute songs with lyrics, instruments, voices, and even artwork.  

 All of this is achievable with Suno’s free edition; however, those accounts have restrictions. You can only receive fifty credits for each day, and that’s sufficient for ten songs. Having a free account, you can also not utilize the songs on a commercial scale; thus, this is primarily a tool for experimenting and making music for your dog. 

 If you pay $8 monthly (or about £6.30 / AU$ 12.20) for the Pro plan, you will receive sufficient credits to create 500 songs daily. The songs are also available for professional usage; for instance, you can post the tracks to Spotify or Apple Music for sale or publish them on YouTube.  

 With the Premium Plan ($24 per month, or about £20 / AU$38), you can listen to up to 2,000 tracks daily, making Bob Dylan appear delightfully lethargic. Each of Suno’s tools is available to you regardless of your plan of choice, including a “custom” mode where you can create your very own lyrics and an “instrumental” mode where you can compose distinctive music. 


 Like most generative artificial intelligence systems, Suno’s exact workings can be more precise. I am still waiting to hear back. Thus, the information or songs on which the application has been educated must be clarified.  

 On a broader note, Suno functions similarly to large language models (LLMs) such as ChatGPT. With a wealth of information about training, including speech recordings in Suno’s instance, it can create creative music and lyrics in response to your commands. While LLMs usually function by predicting the words that are most probable to appear next in a particular order when dealing with text, this becomes quite more difficult when dealing with music. 

 For this reason, Suno employs transformer models and so-called diffusing models, which drive the operations of companies such as Midjourney. Speaking with Mikey Shulman, the chief executive officer and co-founder of Suno, in a conversation with Lightspeed Venture Partners, he stated: “There are advantages and disadvantages to both transformers and diffusion for audio processing.”  

 Regardless of the computational squabbles occurring within Suno, the artificial intelligence music-creating engine is among the best we have yet to witness or hear. Although it’s better at mimicking certain styles compared to others and produces very compressed results, it’s also the ideal project for a humid Saturday afternoon. 


 Suno is straightforward to use—perhaps too simple if your primary source of income is music. Visit the Suno website, create a free account, and navigate to the “Create” area to begin going.  

 You will find a little area where you may enter the song’s description. The most important thing to remember is to specify both the subject matter and the desired genre or style of music. You cannot request that Suno write in the aesthetic of a specific artist, given Suno does not yet hold licensing agreements with labels.  

 We requested Suno to compose an electronic chillwave theme song for TechRadar that would celebrate gadgets and technology. The resultant song, “Future frequencies,” is available for listening below (you can also get the lyrics by downloading the song on Suno). 

 It’s all right for a trial run. With its basic EDM synthesizer sound and The Weeknd echoes, it’s unlikely to win any Grammys. However, it’s another of the rare occasions when Suno got the TechRadar name right.

 Putting Suno through more difficult genre transitions yields more inconsistent outcomes. We sound like a robot Phoebe Bridgers pushed to create a Eurovision ballad, trying to make a solo guitar song about a “sad Robot that desires to be human.” Suno also had a lot of trouble writing electronic 90s rock-inspired birthday music for our friend.  

 Nonetheless, there have also been some surprisingly exceptional outcomes with blues music. Rolling Stone, for instance, created a delta blues track named “Soul of the Machine” (below), which has received close to forty thousand plays on Soundcloud and has a sound quality reminiscent of a low-fidelity Deep South recording.  

With “additional styles and genres” being one of the marketed advantages of Suno’s most recent V3 model, released on March 21, its adaptability ought to improve with time.  

 Refining Suno’s output with additional programs, such as Band in a Box, is also feasible to enhance the music and sound quality. Click the three dots next to the title of your song, select “download,” then “audio” to download the track. To add more to a song, select ‘Continue with this clip,’ create a new segment, and then pick ‘Get complete song’ to finish the song.  

 If you are not using any of the paid services, it’s evident that you cannot commercialize the results. Additionally, it would help if you credited Suno for the song. Naturally, this leads to a more extensive conversation regarding ownership and copyright.  


 The brief response is that if you pay for Suno’s Pro or Premier plans, you own the music created with it. Suno claims that if you are using it for free, it keeps ownership of the music you make.  

 However, this is not the same as copyright ownership. According to Suno’s FAQ section, protecting copyright for material created (entirety or just a part) with computational intelligence is a dynamic and complex field of law constantly changing and differing between nations.  

 For instance, creative works created by artificial intelligence alone and without human intervention are currently not eligible for copyright protection in the United States. However, Suno’s text-to-music capabilities need to be clarified here. Suno suggests speaking with an attorney if you genuinely need the most recent legal advice on your AI-generated excellence.
