World’s First Real-Time Vocal and Instrumental Separation on new djay Pro AI
Algoriddim has unveiled djay Pro AI, a major update to djay for iOS, its Apple Design Award-winning music app, introducing artificial intelligence-based real-time music separation to allow users to mix individual components of music live for the first time.
A decade after the #1 global hit djay for iPad helped millions of users embrace the art of DJing, Algoriddim is excited to launch another revolutionary technology that will once again change the way people mix music.
“From the analog to the digital age, transformations in DJ technology have had a profound impact on music styles and genres as a whole. Neural MixTM is a major paradigm shift. Inspired by the auditory system of the human brain, it changes the way we conceive and mix music. It allows artists of all skill levels to experience and interact with music at an unprecedented depth,” said Karim Morsy, CEO of Algoriddim. “We’re incredibly excited to introduce Neural MixTM to the world and we can’t wait to see what artists and music enthusiasts create with djay Pro AI.”
djay Pro AI introduces Algoriddim’s brand-new, patent pending1 Neural MixTM technology allowing DJs to isolate, play, and remix singular elements from multiple tracks in real-time. This presents an opportunity to layer and swap individual elements of a track, placing the vocals or rhythm from one track directly onto another, allowing DJs to blur genres and redefine their style.
On screen, djay Pro AI provides intuitive sliders and controls, enabling users to seamlessly fade between percussive and harmonic components of a song, best suited for electronic music, or to create instant acapellas and instrumentals with the tap of a button, best suited for Hip-Hop related music.
Core ML and the Apple A12Z Bionic
Built from the ground up using Core ML, djay Pro AI is the first music app to fully leverage the Apple Bionic chip for real-time playback of music. Neural MixTM provides ultra low latency, pristine sound quality, and sample-accurate precision for seeking, scratching, and time-stretching. It does this while processing millions of audio frames per second through deep convolutional networks on the Apple Bionic and rendering high-resolution multi-track waveforms and video in real-time.
Other features of djay Pro AI include:
● Intelligent Automatic Mixing - Automix AI identifies rhythmic patterns and the best intro and outro sections of songs, calculates optimal fade durations and automatically applies parameter changes to EQs and filters for a seamless transition. Perfect for users who want to lean back and listen to a seamless automatic mix.
● Neural MixTM transitions - independently crossfades pairs of musical components of two songs so that a constant pace and energy is maintained throughout a transition without vocals or harmonies clashing.
● DJ Hardware compatibility – djay Pro AI works with an extensive range of MIDI controllers out of the box, offering over 30 new MIDI-mappable Neural MixTM commands that can be assigned to DJ hardware controls.
● UI Refresh – carefully adapted user interface provides intuitive control of new AI music features. A stunning new full screen view allows users to interact with individual waveforms for drums, harmonic, and vocal components per track, side by side.
