Zynaptiq has announced the immediate availability of UNMIX::DRUMS, their new source separation-based plug-in for controlling the level of drums in mixed music. Zynaptiq will be showing UNMIX::DRUMS at their booth 842 at the 139th AES convention, Oct 29th-Nov 1st, 2015, NYC. Here's the story in their own words...
UNMIX::DRUMS is the world's first audio plug-in that allows attenuating or boosting drums in mixed music, in real-time. Using advanced source signal separation (a.k.a. de-mixing, unmixing, sound extraction, sound isolation) technology under the hood, UNMIX::DRUMS provides frequency dependent drum level control that ranges from up to +18dB of boost to virtually complete removal* – while always sounding great. Whether used on a full mix or on a drum bus, UNMIX::DRUMS can be used to shape and enhance the impact of drums in a unique new way. Sporting an intuitive multi-level GUI, frequency dependent control of key parameters, a sample accurate sub-bass (re)synthesizer, a high-precision analyzer display, M/S operation and an output limiter, UNMIX::DRUMS opens up exciting new options for mastering, music production, sample-based music creation, mash-up artists, remixers and DJs.
* Actually achievable amounts depend on input signal specifics.
