Hit’n’Mix RipX DeepAudio

AI Empowerment. Audio Mastery.

Hit’n’Mix RipX DeepAudio is cutting-edge audio manipulation software that accurately isolates voice, drums, bass, sound effects, guitar, keyboard and other layers from full-mix stereo MP3s, WAVs and other file formats, using industry-leading AI source separation.

Additionally, DeepAudio includes tools for producing even higher quality separated audio, such as the Harmonic Editor, Unpitched Sound Editor, and Live Audio Repair & Clean-up.

Experience unprecedented access to – and control over – the notes, harmonics, unpitched sound and other core components of audio, such as amplitude, frequency and phase. All in a powerful but easy-to-use click & drag interface.

Audioshop® Sound Manipulation Tools

  • Powerfully, but easily, adjust pitch, time-stretch, copying and paste individual or groups of notes, sibilants and unpitched sounds.
  • Edit Unpitched tool displays all unpitched sound spread over the entire Rip, from its top to its bottom. Click & drag to select a region of unpitched sound and edit it.
  • Draw notes, drums and samples onto your rip with the Draw Sound tool.
  • Use the Split tool to cut notes into sections for further editing.
  • Piece together notes so you can edit as one, with the Join tool.
  • Quickly change the instrument playing notes, say from vocal to guitar, using the Replace Sound tool.
  • Clone characteristics such as pitch variation (e.g. vibrato), sound (timbre with volume) & panning from one note to another, for example to duplicate a real instrumentalist’s playing style, with the Clone tool.
  • Make fine pitch adjustments and slides simply by clicking and dragging, with the Draw Pitch tool.
  • Add fluctuations in pitch, formant, volume, and panning to notes, using the Apply Pattern tool.
  • Blend together the pitch, formant, timbre, volume and/or stereo panning of notes by clicking & dragging over them, with the Smooth Region tool.

Harmonic Editor

This is no Spectrum Editor – these are the actual harmonics that describe the sound of a note, and Harmonic Editor allows complete control over them.

Perfect for removing noise, adjusting timbre and creating interesting new sounds.

Clean & Repair Audio

Live audio repair and clean-up features for removing background noise, limiting foreground artifacts, reducing tones & hum, and purifying pitched and unpitched sounds.

Adjust overtone levels in notes and even regenerate fundamental harmonics, to bring back bass presence in vocals and instruments, lost during mixing & mastering.

Manipulate Audio With Even More Tools

DeepAudio editing features don’t stop there, including audio manipulation tools such as Chord Creator, Infinity Scale, Inharmonicity and the Beat, Panning, Pitch and Volume Mappers.

DAW Integration

Most leading DAWs can open audio clips for editing with DeepAudio. RipLink plug-ins are installed so that it can be used from Pro Tools and DAWs that support VST3 & ARA2.

For other DAWs, such as Logic Pro X, it is possible to work directly with RipX by setting it as the external sample editor, or by using general audio import and export methods.

RipScripts – Create Your Own Powerful Tools

For the ultimate in audio manipulation, DeepAudio supports RipScripts written in the Python programming language, and even includes a special editor.

Not only can you create a tool with its own UI, RipScripts have access to and control over the core building blocks of sound, such as notes, harmonics, amplitude and frequency.

In fact, the Audioshop and Harmonic Editor features described above are RipScripts.

DeepRemix Included in Hit’n’Mix RipX DeepAudio

deep remix

When you buy RipX DeepAudio, you get the core DeepRemix module for free.

As well as providing intuitive tools for adjusting pitch, time-stretching, copying and pasting individual or groups of notes, and so on, this supplies the layers panel for adjusting levels, stereo panning and EQing of individual instruments and sounds.

Also the Effects menu offers a powerful range of real time effects that can be applied via a slider. When you apply them during playback of a loop, your changes even get recorded as Ripples, so you can experiment to your heart’s content, then playback, edit and cut and paste the results wherever you like!

You can set the musical scale for a song (or let RipX detect it) and RipX can even automatically fit the pitch of notes in selected layers to that scale.

Furthermore, automatic Randomize options allow for the ultimate in creative inspiration for both Effects and Musical Scales.

Who is DeepAudio for?

For Pro Remixers & DJs

  • Export separated stems straight to WAVs to transfer onto a USB stick for mixing into a DJ set.
  • Create acapellas.
  • Remove drums, bass and vocals that might be in the way of other instruments, especially if the track wasn’t recorded as separate stems.
  • Change tempo and apply/randomize effects and key.
  • Mix and match vocal, instrument, percussion and effects parts between different songs and layers.
  • Extract and manipulate samples from within full-mix stereo files.
  • Transform old mono recordings to stereo.
  • Digitize and clean-up crackly vinyl.

For Sound Designers

  • Audio manipulation: Use Draw Pitch and other Audioshop Tools for interesting and original effects.
  • Use Harmonic Editor to create unique sounds from parts of others.
  • Use the Clone Pitch/Sound Tool to transfer audio attributes such as pitch and timbre from one sound to another.
  • Write RipScripts to programmatically adjust/generate original sounds, and even process audio using data files, such as generated by motion capture.
  • For Foley sound replacement, use the Replace Sound Tool.

For Audio Post Professionals

  • Extract artifact-free dialog from noisy footage.
  • Easy access to unintended notes, sounds and background/foreground noise that you may want to remove, or reuse/boost for effect (e.g. traffic, wind, fan hums, crowds, breaths, bleed from other voiceovers) – especially useful where frequencies are close or overlap, making them difficult to access cleanly in a spectrum-based editor.
  • Clean-up individual harmonics with surgical precision.
  • Efficient workflow with most major DAWs using the RipLink VST/ARA & AudioSuite plug-in.
  • Edit audio to video (macOS only).
  • Write RipScripts to programmatically adjust/generate original sounds, and even process audio using data files, such as generated by motion capture.

For Songwriters

  • Experiment with music and samples to create new ideas and creations. E.g. by adjusting tempo, effects, pitches, keys/scales and time stretching.
  • Set Musical Scale to analyze the existing key and set new keys. The Auto Pitch To Scale and Randomize options further enable creative experimentation.
  • Chord Creator helps create harmonies and build new chords from basic melodies.
  • Use the Draw Sound Tool to draw in notes using existing instruments or imported samples.

For Students & Educators

  • Study compositions and performances of yourself or others. View the precise volume, timing and variation in pitch of each note over time and make subtle adjustments to hear the difference.
  • Rip and separate MP3s and audio files into vocal and instrument parts, view the individual notes of any part and practice against backing tracks.
  • Create new versions of songs and compositions and import background images to match the feel of the music or for personalised inspiration.
  • Audio manipulation: Experiment with new sounds and effects.
  • Import samples or MIDI from existing works.
  • Create minimalist compositions with real-time editing of loops, stored as Ripples.
  • Experiment with polystylism and polytonality by applying different scales to selections of notes.
