Native Instruments new open audio file format has well and truly arrived, so we went to East London to check out ‘Exploring Stems’, a presentation and Q&A from NI to get the real deal.
A massive thank you to everyone that entered our Stems competition with Native Instruments. We had literally hundreds of entries from across the globe and here are the winners…
We sat down with Ronny Kreiger from Native Instruments and discussed a few of the burning questions that artists, DJs and labels have been asking us here at Traxsource.
The world of DJing has changed forever. The new Stems files allow users to isolate drums, vocals and bass to open up a new world of possibilities and create mixes and mash-ups in real time.
Stems is a brand new open audio file that has been specifically designed to allow DJs and producers to create instant track edits in real time by isolating the drums, vocals and bass of individual tracks.
Stems were introduced this past Friday, March 27 at a WMC discussion panel (which included Brian Tappert (Traxsource) & DJ Craze) moderated by KCRW Los Angeles Music Director Jason Bentley. The new audio file format provides DJs, producers, and live performers the ability to mix with a track’s different musical elements individually.
