Accusonus has released Regroover, which is described as "the world's first Artificial-Intelligence Beat Machine".
Based on Accusonus' patent-pending "advanced audio analysis" (a3) technology, Regroover analyzes your audio clips and extracts the underlying sound layers. Accusonus say that using these previously unreachable sonic elements, producers, musicians, DJs and sound designers are now able to remix, rearrange and manipulate their grooves with "unprecedented flexibility".
Regroover is a Virtual Instrument that aims to open up brand-new creative possibilities and extend traditional music sampling.
What you can do with Regroover:
- Unmix your grooves. In many cases, Regroover will identify and extract the original source components of your audio grooves or a combination of those components. Breathe new life into your old sound libraries using Regroover's technology.
- Rebalance and refine your groove samples. Precisely craft the sound of individual sound layers and add your favorite effects. Use Regroover to polish your beats or create different versions.
- Remix your beats and produce new rhythmic variations. Musicians traditionally take advantage of beat slicing to remix a groove. Regroover extends beat manipulation. Re-arrange the sound layers and use them to produce fresh beat variations.
- Play around with the A.I. engine and extract new sounds. Regroover's A.I. algorithm can identify music patterns based on several sonic characteristics. Experiment with the A.I. engine settings and reveal the underlying micro rhythms and hidden tempo patterns of your beat samples.
Price: $99. Regroover is available for Mac OS X and Windows in VST, AU and AAX plug-in formats.
