Roland's R-Mix Music Software is designed to let you enhance a stereo mix visually.
According to Roland, V-Remastering and VariPhrase technology combine to allow musicians to see individual pieces of the stereo mix as a color-coded cloud of harmonic matter. Effects, center-cancelling and more can be applied directly to the cloud, and positioned anywhere in the mix.
The mix is broken down into three components - frequency, panning and level. R-Mix makes it possible to view the actual individual instruments within the mix, with each instrument able to have the three aforementioned components adjusted.
The software uses one-screen operation, with menus and navigation described as straightforward.
- View the elements of a stereo mix as color-coded clouds of energy and frequency matter onscreen
- Select and manipulate any element within a stereo mix
- Create “minus-one” type karaoke files from existing songs by lowering the level of the pre-recorded vocal or any other instrument you select
- Create your own remixes and mash-ups by using two pairs of stereo tracks within R-Mix
- Isolate a desired instrument within a mix, and then solo and slow down that element for study
- Clean up old recordings and master your stereo mixes by adjusting individual instrument levels within a mix and applying noise reduction and effects
- Compatible with Mac and Windows
- Simplified version available for Apple iPad
R-Mix will ship in December, and will be released in conjunction with R-Mix Tab, a stripped down version for iPad. No pricing info at this point.
