Audioshake uses AI to deconstruct songs into their stems so that they can be monetized in new ways. With customers ranging from major and indie labels, to music publishers, indie artists, and producers, Audioshake’s professional-quality instrumentals and stems have been used for samples, sync licensing, re-masters, re-mixes, spatial audio, gaming, and more. Called the “cleanest separation” stem tech by DJ Mag, the company is the winner of Sony’s 2021 Demixing challenge, beating out all other sound separation offerings, including from companies like Facebook, Byte Dance, and others.
