Native Instruments Launches Stems
Yesterday, Native Instruments launched ‘Stems‘, a music format that allows DJ’s and producers to control individual parts of tracks.
The programme is designed to make it easier for DJs to mix tracks by picking out certain elements within a song and adding filters or tempo changes. Before Stems existed, if DJ’s wanted to isolate parts of a track in this way they’d either have to have access to original recording files or use software to filter out the chosen frequencies.
Stems is supported by the free Traktor 2.9 update, which also launched yesterday. The files themselves are available now from six retailers including Beatport and Traxsource.
