It only works if you have Windows 10 Pro?

@liquidsnake, it should work on whatever versions Docker runs on. so Windows 10 64-bit: Pro, Enterprise, or Education (Build 15063 or later) according to

firstly youre amazing for porting this !!!!!

amazing at so many levels !!!!

have to report on windows it fails at the docker cp to extract from the container, i can do it manually via powershell, not too sure why my js aint great to bug fix but wanted to changed the js but cant figure out how to get the python to point to the containerID as that chaanges everytime its ran i think *docker newbie
maybe not sure before i touch the code the UI in docker desktop for windows is diff instead of shared drives it has file sharing is that the same thing
willing to help if what i said makes sense lol
and thank you again azuki i appreciate you !!!

@freshvintijbatls, i have fixed the docker cp issue. if you download the latest .zip file it should just work. thanks!

Will give it a go ;)

The plugin loads fine and I have docker installed but when I highlight a clip and click start nothing happens other than the start button disappearing. I am on a late 2014 Mac Mini running 10.15.4

wait... are you telling me you can simply control python using native n4m?
terrific project, btw.

Hi, thanks a lot for your great job.

I managed to install Docker in Windows 10 Home Edition and launch Spleeter in Live 10. It does its job on my WAV file called "The Jack (Solo)" but when it has to open the final folder where the separate tracks, it gives me this error message :
"ERROR:spleeter:An error occurs with ffprobe (see ffprobe output below)

any ideas ?

Great tool.

On the conversion sometimes the sound is quite metallic.
there is any tips of a better sound quality after the conversion?

insane that this is free. thank you so much for putting this out here azuki :):)

windows link for Docker is a no go; this is the new juan for anyone looking:

Hey all, FYI i no longer support the Docker install method. Instead you can follow the instructions at to install Spleeter natively. You'll need a new version of this max device from

Docker might still work, I just can't help you if it breaks :P.

The docker version is still working for me on Mac OS 12.0.1 (Intel) in Live 11.

But is there a way to get 2 stem separation in the M4L version?

can anyone help me understand why spleeter's output .wavs cut off ever frequency above 11K? is this intentional and is it there a way to export with higher quality/high frequencies?
