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.

*Actually achievable amounts depend on input signal specifics.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

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 our 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. We call this impact equalization. As drum punch connoisseurs, we´re proud to say: It's simply awesome.

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 Graphical User Interface 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.

Customer Reviews

Press Quotes

"It amazes me that this plug-in is able to achieve so much while doing so little damage to non-drum audio." - Paul White, Sound on Sound

"Beyond the fact that Unmix::Drums is a great corrective tool, delivering extremely effective results, it also has huge creative potential. You can use it to bring the dynamics back into an overcompressed drum bus, or tweak the level of a kick drum within a mix, but it's also a powerful weapon for creating builds in DJ sets and injecting life into flat drum loops." - Computer Music

"Unmix Drums pulls off the virtually impossible with grace. Costing only $189, Unmix::Drums is a powerful tool for mixing, mastering, and restoration work. Highly recommended!" - Electronic Musician
