Google once again shows off its power by introducing an AI equipped musical instrument. Google has built Synthesizer that is able to produce music notes by itself with the help of Artificial Intelligence. However, the company did not intend to put the new innovation sale.

Yes, you won't be able to buy the synthesizer as Google decided to keep it out of the market. However, the search giant wants others to build their own AI based musical instrument like this synthesizer. The team behind the device is publishing the hardware designs and the software is already available on Github for people to assemble their own version of the synthesizer. The instrument isn't like any other Google product that company built for the revenue generation, it is totally research-based project. Some researchers from Google came up with the software idea of the instrument and then implemented it to the hardware.  

The Google’s new AI instrument contains an AI system named NSynth at its core to function. The system was built on neural networks containing single notes from thousands of musical instruments. This gigantic musical data helps the system to come up with new and multiple notes of different instruments. NSynth was developed by Google Brain AI research group which took help from Deepmind, Google’s another AI research firm. NSynth technology comes under Magenta, which is an open source project to implement machine learning into music and arts.

NSynth Super is the prototype hardware that works exceptionally well for the live performer and music lovers. The device is very sleek in design made up of the metal casing, it has four knobs and a white (multicolored) display in the center. The knobs are used to change the instrument, you need to drag your fingers in order to make music from it. The device let the user play combination of four instruments at once. At the corners of the screen you will get the most basic output of the instruments, but when you start sliding your fingers towards the center the combinations of different instruments kicks in.

With the decision to make the NSynth an open source project for the people Google demonstrated its capabilities in the AI research. The tech giant has proven that AI technology is not only for making billion dollars but it can also in help in building devices to boost up human creativity.
