Hip hop instrumental tracks using machine learning

My kids and I enjoy 90s hip hop music but some lyrics from that era have not aged well. What if there was an easy way to create reasonably good instrumental versions of these songs?

Polymath is a suite of tools that uses machine learning to convert any music library into a music production sample-library. Polymath uses Demucs behind the scenes to separates tracks into stems for various instruments (drum, bass, guitar, piano, other, and vocals).



Demucs Music Source Separation


Demo gods willing I will run through a few examples. I would also be interested to learn from attendees about other tools & methods for accomplishing this and other music production sample processing tasks!
