De-Mix Audio using FluCoMa in Max

Taught by: Ted Moore

Sunday 26th March 4pm UK, 5pm Berlin, 8am LA, 11am NYC


The first time I heard an example of what this algorithm can do, I was super impressed. It broke apart a mono drum loop into three tracks. One had only the snare sounds, one had only the kick drum sounds, and one had only the cymbal sounds. This sparked a lot of thinking about how I could use this for creativity. Then I found out it also can break apart and identify specific sounds in real-time audio. In this workshop I'll show you how these tools work in the FluCoMa toolkit and some of the ways I've been using it in my own work.
