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.
