Native Instruments Stems is a brand new format allowing you to manipulate individual parts of a track within a single MP4 file. Loaded into Traktor or any Stem-compatible software, the MP4 can give the user access to drums; melodies, vocals, FX or any element the producer has decided to share.
It’s a whole new world for DJs and live performance, and for their latest FFL session Point Blank demonstrated how it all works using the new Kontrol S8!
If you want to learn more about Stems, Traktor and DJing in general, Point Blank’s features a complete DJ module that covers everything you need to know to master the decks. Every student gets their own workstation featuring the latest industry standard kit from Pioneer and you also get the chance to play out at the end of the module in one of London’s top nightclubs. .
