Have you ever imagined the existence of a program that can separate the components of a song? With the arrival of this new AI you can achieve it regardless of the type of music.
In recent years, the Artificial Intelligence it has become an important tool.
Now this technology has also reached the world of music. This time it is a creation of Alexandre Défossez, and the purpose of this is to separate by tracks the elements that are part of a song.
How does it work?
Artificial Intelligence is born with the intention of resolve any conflict. In this case, the problem we face is known as blind separation of sourcesand within that concept is the cocktail party effect, which is the ability of a person to concentrate from a conversation in an area where there is noise.
This Artificial Intelligence has implementations called Demucs and Conv-Tasnet who are able to separate the drums, vocals and guitars from the rest of the components based on the waveforms generated by these instruments.
The creator of this project explains that he trained his AI algorithm with more than 20,000 songs of all genres where the voices were isolated. Thanks to the neural networks, the program has been refined to the point that it is available to the entire community.
Another facet of this tool is its speed when processing a piece of music. It is estimated that it takes one minute to process a piece of music more than five minutes longyou know, if I needed more clues, it would take at most three minutes.
Programming as protagonist
The key element of this Artificial Intelligence is that it is in the programme. The creators used Python Anaconda to create a Demucs, and consequently add the attributed values and thus proceed to the decomposition of the song.
Once you have added the required commands and the song you want to fragment, a folder will appear that will contain four stereo audio files that divide the piece of music into drums, bass, vocals and others.
Separating audio and voice has become a headache for many record labels. Now, all those who have wanted to use the base of an existing song and innovate on it can get it thanks to this program.
