Oct 30, 2023

In the music production world, every sound counts. Each individual track, known as a stem, contributes to the overall masterpiece. At RoEx, we strive to make your mixing process as smooth as possible with our flagship product, Automix. This intelligent tool takes your stems, applies AI-powered mixing, and delivers a polished mix, ready for mastering.

If you’re a GarageBand user, exporting your stems for use in Automix is a straightforward process. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you transfer your stems from GarageBand to Automix:

Step 1: Prepare Your Project in GarageBand

  • Organise Your Tracks: Ensure all your tracks are labelled and organised. This will help you keep track of your stems during the exporting and uploading process.

  • Mute Effects: Temporarily mute any corrective effects on your tracks like EQ or Compression. Automix will handle the processing, ensuring a seamless mixing experience.

Step 2: Exporting Your Stems from GarageBand

  • Select Track: Click on the track you want to export.

  • Solo the track: Click on the headphone icon for the specific track you want to export

  • Export Track: Go to ‘Share’ in the top menu, then select ‘Export Song to Disk.’

  • Choose Format: Select ‘WAV’ as the export format for the highest quality. Repeat these steps for each track you want to export.

Step 3: Uploading to Automix

  • Log in to Automix: Visit the RoEx platform and log in to your account.

  • Create a New Project: Click on ‘New Project’ and give your project a name.

  • Upload Stems: Click on ‘Click to upload tracks’ and select the stems you exported from GarageBand.
