DJs and music producers have been trying to split up the music and the instrumental sound for a long time, and have been successful as well. But there has always been a question of quality compromising since the output doesn’t come out good. But with this AI tool, it is now easier for them to get the music of their desire.
The all-new ‘Spleeter’ Software
The software is invented by the music company Deezer for the purpose of research mainly. The biggest win for the software is that when it’ll run on a good Graphics Processing Unit, it has the ability to split the audio into 4 stems 100 times faster than any manual process.
The users just need to upload a file and the Spleeter will easily split to up to five different audio tracks. Although the quality isn’t that perfect but can be used well and also the speed of the tool disposes the matter of quality to an extent.
Deezer knows very well that people have used Automated tools earlier for making a particular task easy, and took a step towards this tool with a lot of research done in the past.
“Sometimes get a robotic autotuned feel”
Technology blogger Andy Baio has mentioned various examples of the sample music posted on his Twitter. Andy believes this software will be very useful for those who create mashups.
He also practiced his skills by splitting and reorganizing the very famous “I’ll be there for you” by the Rembrandts and also said, “Nobody should have this kind of power.”

20,000 Songs were tested on the tool
Aurelien Herault, the Chief Data Research Officer of the parent company Deezer, claims that
20,000 tracks of various genres and with pre-isolated vocals were tested in order to let the tool
learn it’s a task by its automated features.
The application is mainly designed for DJ’s and Producers, but still not available as a consumer
tool laying in the market. But those who want to use it can simply upload their work on the interface.
Deezer’s ‘Splinter’ seems to creatively simplify the work for people. It is a great invention in
terms of Artificial Intelligence. With machine-based automation taking place in various sectors
such as scaling of textures in video games and also removing backgrounds from pictures, this is
a new track for the people in the field of music.
This software seems to make the work easy but you will have to download a few software for running the application such as Google’s Tensor flow or Python.
Herault mentioned earlier that the company is also using Spleeter for, “Complex Research tasks
such as music categorization, transcription, and language detection.”
