DeepRemix In Depth Video Review
Watch our video review to get plenty of examples of what DeepRemix can do with different audio files. See how to create instant backings, extract vocals, isolate drums and bass, solo guitar. No experience needed. The AI does the work for you. And once you have ripped the audio apart you can edit the layers – or remix to make something completely new.
What is DeepRemix?
Hit ‘n’ Mix’s new RipX: DeepRemix app does something that, up until relatively recently, would have been unthinkable in all but the most expensive, high-end software.
Put simply, it enables you to ‘rip’ apart your stereo MP3s and other audio files. Or, to put it another way, it separates out their individual vocal and instrumental parts so that you can do what you want with them.
DeepRemix offeres massive potential for remixers, DJs and producers who want to re-work mixes of their favourite tracks.
What’s more, you don’t even need any music production experience in order to use it. This is because DeepRemix uses powerful AI isolation algorithms to perform the separation, so it’s all done automatically. It sounds like magic, but it really can isolate a track’s vocals, bass, drum and other layers at the push of a button.
But this is just the start – once your tracks have been separated, you can start manipulating them in all manner of ways, mixing and matching layers right from within the software. You can apply effects, change the tempo, tweak the key, and even make new loops in real-time.
Your audio can be viewed and edited on an intuitive colour-coded display, where you can re-balance tracks by making volume, panning and EQ adjustments. Expect amazing results with minimal effort.
This is the kind of stuff that, not so long ago, would have required a team of experienced audio engineers and a roomful of equipment to make happen, but now it’s all there for you on your desktop.
Mix and match layers, apply effects, change tempo and key, all in no time at all. An essential app for those into the art of music production, and for all kinds of DJs, musicians, students and educators.

Who is DeepRemix For?
Originally HitnMix had in mind the DJ market for this product, as you can easily extract stems from songs that you can then import straight into DJ software like Tractor, or any DAW for further mixing, sample manipulation etc.
However, it has a whole bunch of other uses too. DeepRemix can be used by all kinds of musicians, students, and teachers for:
● Studying compositions and performances of yourself or others, viewing the precise volume, timing, and variation in pitch of each note over time and making subtle adjustments to hear the difference.
● Ripping and splitting MP3s and audio files into vocal and instrument parts, then viewing individual notes of any part and practicing against backing tracks.
● Creating new versions of songs and compositions and importing background images to match the feel of the music or for personalized inspiration.
● Experimenting with new sounds and effects.
● Importing samples or MIDI from existing works.
● Creating minimalist compositions with real-time editing of Loops, stored as Ripples.
● Experimenting with polystylism and polytonality by applying different scales to selections of notes.
Advanced Uses for DeepRemix
DeepRemix is especially useful for audio transcribers and those working in music publishing for:
● Quickly stripping out vocals and creating instrumentals from stereo masters for sync placement purposes, without needing to open a single, original multitrack DAW project.
● Ripping and isolating parts within MP3s and audio files and then exporting them as MIDI files to then import into notation software.
● Analyzing parts and then applying characteristics of those to your own mixes, plus lots more!
