Native Instruments opens a Stem-dedicated website
Native Instruments took advantage of the Sónar festival in Barcelona to officially introduce its new Stem format with a dedicated website.
The Stem format had been introduced earlier this year, but Sónar visitors had the opportunity to discover the multitrack audio format developed by Native Instruments for DJs during an event lead by Tony Nwachukwu along with Carl Craig, Luciano, Kerri Chandler and Alexander Cazac (Infiné label founder).
Native Instruments also opened the www.stems-music.com website on which you’ll find all the details about this new Stem format, and can discover the tools that will be released for the DJs to create and manage these Stems, including the Stem Creator Tool.
This is a free app in which you’ll import four elements (prepared WAV audio files) as well as a stereo master of the track. You can then edit the metadata (stem name and color, album title) and apply a compressor and a limiter within the software. The Stem Creator Tool will then export the stems to a stem.mp4 file.
The Stem format being opened, Native Instruments will also release an SDK so that hardware and software developers can make their products compatible with this format.
The Stem Creator Tool and SDK will be available this summer.
