FL Studio adds stem separation and AI mastering in new beta
The latest beta of FL Studio is now available, adding AI mastering and stem separation to the DAW. Both features use FL Cloud, a new addition that was announced in August this year, and allows the popular software to become cloud-connected, meaning new features and audio content can be added remotely by Image-Line.
The latest version of the beta — FL Studio 21.2 — has added a much-anticipated stem separation tool, the first DAW to use AI to split fully mixed tracks into their constituent parts such as bass, drums, and vocal. The results depend heavily on the source material, and artefacts are often left behind during the stem-splitting process, but it’s a big step towards fully integrated AI tech inside a DAW.
