Stems - A New Format For DJ’s

Yesterday, Native Instruments announced a new open source music file format called Stems that will allow DJ’s to manipulate tracks like never before.  Stems will break down songs into four different parts like bassline, melody, vocals, and drums.  This way, DJ’s can now manipulate these four different parts separately with effects, cue points, loops, or whatever else one’s heart desires.  The new format uses MP4 coding and the onus will be on the industry producers to create these partial files in conjunction with their normal track duties when music is made.

[Review] Traktor Kontrol S8 Controller

The Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S8 is the latest and greatest DJ controller from NI that can operate as a completely Stand-Alone 4-channel mixer, has touch sensitive controls, high quality user-replaceable faders, and dual high resolution screens for all the Traktor information one could need without glancing at their laptop.  The Remix decks controls replace the jog wheels and pitch sliders for each deck, so it may not be for everyone… Check out our review video to see our thoughts.
