LOS ANGELES, August 1, 2013 – Audionamix, the industry’s leading sound separation specialists and developers of the revolutionary ADX Technology, contributed audio isolation services to Verve Music Group for their latest release, Verve Remixed: The First Ladies. The album, now available in stores and on iTunes, was produced by Dahlia Ambach Caplin and Todd Roberts.
Audionamix’s solutions empowered the mixing talent on Verve Remixed: The First Ladies by providing isolated vocals and their corresponding instrumental residuals from original mono master recordings of Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Sarah Vaughn, Billie Holliday and Dinah Washington, to name a few. These elements allowed the DJs of 10 tracks to remix with complete creative freedom. Verve Remixed: The First Ladies features RAC’s remix of “To Darn Hot” and Pretty Lights’ take on “I Put a Spell on You.” Other DJs who contributed their talent include Maya Jane Coles, C2C, Pontus Winnberg of Miike Snow, Flume’s Jackin House, Toro Y Moi, Azari and III, and DJ Carnage and Victor Niglio.
Ambach Caplin comments, “One of the big obstacles we always had in producing the Verve Remixed series was the lack of multi tracks. This time around, thanks to Audionamix, we were able to give some of today's best producers and DJs extracted vocals and instrumentals. The evolving technology Audionamix uses and constantly works on perfecting is a game changer for projects like the Verve Remixed series, and the results on Verve Remixed: The First Ladies speak for themselves.”
Audionamix and Verve Music Group previously collaborated on several recent releases including isolating Fitzgerald's voice from the instruments on her 1956 recording of “What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?” which provided producer Jay Landers with a clean a cappella version of the song for a virtual duet with Rod Stewart. The song was featured on his 2012 album “Merry Christmas Baby.”
For Barbra Streisand’s unreleased titles album “Release Me,” Audionamix worked again with Landers to separate instrumental bleed on the 1973 original recording of "Mother And Child." Using their technology and expertise, Audionamix was able to preserve Michel Legrand's arrangements, orchestration and performance after 39 years in the archives. The track was re-mixed, mastered and released as part of Streisand’s top-selling 32nd album.
Another vocal isolation was performed on Edith Piaf’s legendary “La Vie En Rose” for Andre Bocelli’s January 2013 album Passione. And for Natalie Cole en Español (from Verve/Universal), Audionamix provided isolated elements for the multiple Grammy Award-winner to perform another virtual duet with her father Nat King Cole on “Acércate Más” (“Come Closer to Me”).
Audionamix’s audio separation solutions also serve the film and television markets, providing solutions for removing licensed music from locked assets for home or foreign distribution, creating surround sound versions from mono or stereo, and isolating tracks (either music or dialogue) for special venue performances, among many other services.
“Our solutions allow for the manipulation of audio elements so that assets can be repurposed for new applications,” says Rick Silva, VP of Production at Audionamix. “Whether it’s a virtual duet or remix, or a content owner trying to create something new, our proprietary technology – backed by our expert audio deconstruction engineers – enables dormant assets to be monetized and creativity to be unleashed.”
The proprietary algorithms developed by Audionamix essentially reverse engineer locked, mixed audio recordings into separate tracks. “The company has become the premier destination for sound separation over the last five years,” adds Arnaud Dudemaine, VP of Operations at Audionamix. “We are proud of the solutions our ADX Technology brings to the process of creation and repurposing iconic content.
