"Audioshake's smart & innovative AI technology gives power to composers, artists, artists estates and admin copyright holders alike to extract key performances, and isolate and split instrumentation into individual stem files taken from a flattened recording wav. By creating instrumental stems from original recordings, where the session files were once considered lost or have suffered damage over the years, Audioshake gives access to new functionality and new revenue streams for older copyrights."

How Cleopatra uses AudioShake

"Audioshake AI gives me the ability to create an instrumental draft mix within minutes on the fly, to send out to music supervisors and editors before they commit to a placement. It allows for more flexibility when considering music for a placement. It’s a game changer for music editors, giving the possibility to take trailerized music to the next level of storytelling."

How does AudioShake technology help Cleopatra?

"I personally found it to be a perfect tool to use when pitching music catalogues that have no previous instrumental mixes for synchronization placement opportunities. On the creative A&R side of the coin, I also found the platform helpful with offering remix productions more robust quality files to work and reimagine with. It's very helpful for creating new artist collaborations from music’s most historical performances, and for maximizing opportunities to create/recreate more revenue from iconic recordings."
