get ready for tens of thousands of new remaster releases

"Upmixing" is new AI driven technology that allows single track original recordings to be reprocessed into multi-track, heretofore considered impossible.

But AI can do it.

I still remember the first time I plugged a Commodore Vic 20 into our living room TV 40 years ago and started typing. After about an hour, I said out loud to my family "this changes everything"...

Abbey Road Studios programmer invents AI driven process:

The challenge dropped him at the leading edge of a field known as upmixing, in which software and audio engineers work together to transform old recordings in ways that were once unthinkable. Using machine learning, engineers have made inroads into "demixing" the voices and instruments on recordings into completely separate component tracks, often known as stems. Isolating the components of songs is a surprisingly hard problem-more like unswirling paint than using a pair of scissors.

But once engineers have stems, they can take the isolated tracks and "upmix" them into something new and perhaps improved. They might enhance a muffled drum track on an old recording, produce an a capella version of a song, or do the opposite and remove a song's vocals so it can be used as background in a TV show or movie.

I can't wait for some new remasters of Szell recordings! Sign me up!

. I judge any sound system by how tiring it is to listen to.
