To protect creative integrity and artists’ rights, uploads must be free of copyrighted material. The company uses Audible Magic’s content recognition technology to prevent such violations and ensure user compliance.

To further protect artists, Stable Audio 1.0 and Stable Audio 2.0 were trained on AudioSparx data, which consists of over 800,000 audio files, and artists were given the option to opt out of training the model Stable Audio.

The new model can also produce tracks up to three minutes long in 44.1kHz stereo, a significant improvement over Stable Audio which could only produce tracks up to 45 seconds long. The three-minute generation includes all the necessary elements for a song such as melodies, backing track, sound effects, etc.
