Welcome to an exciting new era of "visual" audio manipulation. R-MIX software — powered by Roland's newly developed V-Remastering technology in conjunction with VariPhrase — lets you see the components of a stereo mix as color-coded clouds of energy and harmonic matter as the song plays! Select your desired components of the mix, and freely edit them — an impossible task in the past. You can change panning positions and levels to individual instruments within a stereo mix, for example, and add effects to each element as desired. You can even independently adjust the pitch and speed of the playback, realized with VariPhrase.
How does this power translate to you? You can use R-MIX to easily create "minus-one" type karaoke files from existing songs by lowering the level of a pre-recorded vocal or any other instrument you select within each mix. You can also create your own remixes and mash-ups by using two pairs of stereo tracks within R-MIX. As a skill-building tool, R-MIX can be used to isolate any desired instrument within a mix, and then solo and slow down that element for study; isolate a fast guitar solo, for example, and slow it down to learn it. R-MIX can be used to clean up old recordings and master stereo mixes by adjusting individual instrument levels and applying noise reduction and effects, and all with ease and at a high level of sound quality.
High-Quality Sound R-MIX makes magic happen, but magic is meaningless if the quality is poor. With R-MIX, you get high-quality, natural-sounding results without undesirable artifacts, glitches, or over-modulated sounds. And once you've finished your project, you can export it as an audio file and play it on any standard music-playback device, or import the file into your favorite music-software program.
Effects and Noise Cancel Add effects only to any specific part of a mix, such as vocals, and clean up your mixes with the built-in Noise Cancel, which eliminates undesirable hiss and hum noises. Delay and reverb effects are also onboard, letting you add depth and expression to each element (or all) of your mix.
Create Your Own Mixes You can easily make "minus-one" type karaoke files from existing songs by lowering the level of the pre-recorded vocal or any other instrument you select. Using the same technique in reverse, you can solo an individual part and analyze it for study; slow down a fast guitar solo, for example, and learn how to play it. Create mash-ups and remixes with stereo files as if they were multitracks. The sky's the limit!
Fast Workflow With R-MIX, there's only one friendly screen to navigate. No need to switch screens or hunt through a maze of embedded menus. R-MIX's controls are designed according to natural workflow so you can work effortlessly. A built-in Help window is provided for each task so you can operate R-MIX without the need for a printed manual.
iPad Version Available! A simplified version of R-MIX called "R-MIX Tab" will be available for the Apple iPad. Use V-Remastering technology to extract audio elements from songs and easily create "minus-one" type play-along tracks from an audio file on your iPad!
