Zynaptiq Unmix Drums
Intelligent Drum Processor Plugin
Boost Or Attenuate Drums In Mixed Music
UNMIX DRUMS is the world's first audio plugin that allows attenuating or boosting drums in mixed music, in real-time.
Using advanced source signal separation (a.k.a. de-mixing, unmixing, sound extraction, sound isolation) technology under the hood, UNMIX DRUMS provides frequency-dependent drum level control that ranges from up to +18dB of boost to virtually complete removal*, while always sounding great.
Whether used on a full mix or on a drum bus, UNMIX DRUMS can be used to shape and enhance the impact of your drums in a unique new way.
Sporting an intuitive multi-level GUI, frequency-dependent control of key parameters, sample-accurate sub-bass (re)synthesizer, our high-precision analyzer display, M/S operation, and an output limiter, UNMIX::DRUMS opens up exciting new options for mastering, music production, sample-based music creation, mash-up artists, remixers and DJs.
*Actual achievable amounts depend on input signal specifics.

Turn It Up (or Down)
UNMIX DRUMS is your after-the-fact fader for the drums. It takes a mixed music input and allows you to change the level of the drums relative to everything else, in real-time.
Attenuate the drums to "headphone bleed" levels, or make them sit squarely in your face, the choice is yours. Adjust DRUM LEVEL and THRESHOLD, done.
UNMIX DRUMS doesn't only work with mixed music, you can slap it onto a drum buss, too.
Adjusting DRUM LEVEL frequency dependently using the slick breakpoint editor in the CURVES view lets you shape the impact and punch of your drums like never before.
Without touching a compressor or transient processor, and even if they're inside a full mix. Zynaptiq call this impact equalization.
Smooth Punch, Punchy Smoothness
Speaking of punch: UNMIX DRUMS offers two boost modes, SMOOTH and PUNCHY.
The SMOOTH mode was designed with a dry, organic sound in mind, for natural sounding medium boost situations, as well as pre-processing for drum extraction applications.
PUNCHY produces a very snappy, tight sound that can really make the drums jump at you.
Both modes allow boosting the drum reverb, too, SMOOTH focusing on early reflections and PUNCHY on long reverb tails.
Off The Richter Scale
UNMIX DRUMS features the world's first and only sample accurate sub-bass (re)synthesizer.
Adding punchy and clean low-frequency energy to your music or drums has never been easier.
Simply raise the BASS SYNTH slider to taste, no level instabilities, false triggers or phase cancellation included.
Whether subtly extending the frequency range on a jazz master or creating earth-shattering club beats of woofer destruction, the onboard BASS SYNTH delivers with minimal effort.
UNMIX DRUMS features an intuitive 3-way GUI design.
Rather than cluttering up your workspace, this layout ensures you see only the parameters you need to see, when, and if you need them.
With its level compensation feature, M/S processing, a hard-knee limiter, "kill-switch" style drum level macro buttons, and a plethora of carefully hand-crafted factory presets, UNMIX DRUMS delivers stunning results, easily and in an instant.
