After a rigorous five-week beta testing period, Native Instruments announced today that the release of the official, full version of Stem Creator is now available for free download via the Stems Music website. The new tool provides a simple way to create high-quality Stem files using a drag-and-drop interface and integrated mastering controls to fine-tune the final mixed Stem file’s sound. For example, a Stem file can contain a track split into four musical elements such as a drums stem, a bassline stem, a melody stem, and a vocal stem. Each stem can be controlled independently to create instant new mixes, mashups, instrumentals, acapellas, and more.

Native Instruments also recently introduced Stem file support in Traktor Pro 2, providing instant plug-and-play connectivity with Traktor Kontrol S8, S5, D2, and F1—the world’s first Stems-ready DJ controllers. The innovative software manufacturer also recommends using their advanced audio mastering techniques within Stem Creator, which can be used to during the final stages of the master dynamics process. To conclude this massive release, Native Instruments published a video interview with Through My Speakers label artist, NGHT DRPS, on how the Stem Creator software adds flexibility to his sets and how the program is used in the final mastering process.
