Boost Or Attenuate Drums In Mixed Music

UNMIX DRUMS is the world’s first audio plugin 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 your 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, our 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.

*Actual achievable amounts depend on input signal specifics.

Features

  • Source Separation-Based Control of Drum Level in Mixed Music.
  • SMOOTH and PUNCHY Boost Modes.
  • Sample-Accurate Sub-Bass (Re)Synthesizer.
  • Frequency-Dependent Control of Key Parameters.
  • Intuitive 3-way GUI Design.

Turn It Up (or Down)

UNMIX DRUMS is your after-the-fact fader for the drums. It takes a mixed music input and allows you to change the level of the drums relative to everything else, in real-time. Attenuate the drums to "headphone bleed" levels, or make them sit squarely in your face – the choice is yours. Adjust DRUM LEVEL and THRESHOLD, done.

Impact Shaping

UNMIX DRUMS doesn't only work with mixed music - you can slap it onto a drum buss, too. Adjusting DRUM LEVEL frequency dependently - using the slick breakpoint editor in the CURVES view - lets you shape the impact and punch of your drums like never before. Without touching a compressor or transient processor, and even if they're inside a full mix. Zynaptiq call this impact equalization.

Smooth Punch, Punchy Smoothness

Speaking of punch: UNMIX DRUMS offers two boost modes, SMOOTH and PUNCHY. The SMOOTH mode was designed with a dry, organic sound in mind, for natural sounding medium boost situations, as well as pre-processing for drum extraction applications. PUNCHY produces a very snappy, tight sound that can really make the drums jump at you. Both modes allow boosting the drum reverb, too, SMOOTH focusing on early reflections and PUNCHY on long reverb tails.

Off The Richter Scale

UNMIX DRUMS features the world's first and only sample accurate sub-bass (re)synthesizer. Adding punchy and clean low-frequency energy to your music or drums has never been easier. Simply raise the BASS SYNTH slider to taste – no level instabilities, false triggers or phase cancellation included. Whether subtly extending the frequency range on a jazz master or creating earth-shattering club beats of woofer destruction, the onboard BASS SYNTH delivers – with minimal effort.

Workflow Monster

UNMIX DRUMS features an intuitive 3-way GUI design. Rather than cluttering up your workspace, this layout ensures you see only the parameters you need to see – when and if you need them. With its level compensation feature, M/S processing, a hard-knee limiter, "kill-switch" style drum level macro buttons, and a plethora of carefully hand-crafted factory presets, UNMIX DRUMS delivers stunning results, easily and in an instant.

Copy Protection
This software uses the latest PACE copy protection, which allows you to place your activation on your machine or on an iLok 2/3 (not included). You will need a free iLok.com account to use our software, even for the demos – but you do not necessarily need the iLok dongle, if your machine has internet access (activation of a system without internet connectivity requires an iLok USB device). All required software is installed along with our plugins, but it's recommended that you download the latest versions directly from iLok.com.

CPU Load
While they are highly optimized, Zynaptiq plug-ins use a LOT of CPU due to the complex nature of the magic they perform. It is recommended that you set your playback buffer size to at least 512 or ideally 1024 samples for optimum performance.

As the plug-ins sport unique features not found in any other software, we highly recommend reading their manuals to ensure you get the most out of them!
