AI generated sound effects are here

If you can describe it, we can generate it

Text to Sound is here. Our newest AI Audio model can generate sound effects, short instrumental tracks, soundscapes, and a wide variety of character voices, all from a text prompt. Available now for all users. All of the sounds you hear in this video were generated by ElevenLabs.

In the last year, we revolutionized AI Voices by producing the first truly emotive, human-like Text to Speech platform. Text to Sound Effects marks another major step forward as we equip creators with all of the audio tools they need to produce high quality content. 

The tool has been designed to help creators—including film and television studios, video game developers, and social media content creators—to generate rich and immersive soundscapes quickly, affordably and at scale. 

To make the expansion into Sound Effects possible, we partnered with Shutterstock, a leading global creative platform connecting brands and businesses to quality, ethically-sourced content. Through this collaboration, we were able to fine tune our model using the expansive and diverse content from the Shutterstock audio library of licensed tracks to create a rich, versatile new tool for modern creators. 

Aimee Egan, Chief Enterprise Officer at Shutterstock, had this to say:

“We're excited to be partnering with ElevenLabs to fuel yet another significant innovation in AI, Text to Sound Effects, with our ethically-sourced data. The combined power of our rich and immersive library of tracks and this cutting-edge audio technology has enabled the creation of a true market first. We're thrilled by the positive feedback from the early access community and look forward to seeing the wide array of projects they will create.”
