OK. I will concede that the result is different - I would say, though, that
the ability to produce the first result suggests (strongly) that, somewhere
within the processing, the individual sources must be sufficiently well
separated to be identifiable.
I'd never claim that the result is perfect - it's sometimes extremely
difficult to hear what's going on.

In that case, I don't suppose that you will be successful ;-)
'exact' is a very difficult concept in engineers ;-) ... most of the time we
settle for "sufficiently useful/good estimates".
