DJ CFLO’s macOS Desktop Apps Stemverter 2 and 3vise Improve DJ Workflow

If you’re a DJ or music producer running into typical issues DJs have during sets and producers have while working on tracks — acapellas, instrumentals, and other separated sections of tracks are required, Serato files are corrupt — you’re in luck.

Stemverter 2 and 3vise are CFLO’s latest macOS desktop apps that improve DJs and music producers’ workflow.

Foremost, Stemverter 2 allows a DJ or producer to separate any song into its stems (Acapella, Instrumental, Drums, Bass, Piano, and Transients) using a simple drag and drop interface. Unlike other stem separation solutions on the market, Stemverter 2 converts files using local processing power and outputs files as hard copies for music production or live DJ sets. The latest version adds the ability for a user to batch convert files, choose between WAV or MP3 output, and employs ID3 cloning and smart file naming to make file management much easier for the user. It also supports macOS 10.12 Sierra – 11.3 Big Sur (Intel only).

3vise allows DJs one-click capability to scan and repair mp3s and “scrub” problematic ID3 metadata. Users can repair the source file in place, meaning they will not have to relocate the files or make any changes to their DJ libraries.

Stemverter 2 is a free upgrade for all Stemverter v1.1 users. For those who have not previously used the app, it is priced at $69. As for 3vise, it is available as a 100% FREE Download and supports macOS 10.12 Sierra – 11.3 Big Sur.

Denon DJ has just announced their latest controller, the LC6000 PRIME. Bearing many similarities to its renowned SC6000 PRIME, the Denon DJ LC6000 PRIME is billed as “the world’s most versatile DJ controller,” capable of  bringing “professional club-style layout, design, and control to both standalone and laptop-based DJ workflows.”

The controller features a stacked dual-layer waveform display, ensuring correct information for each track is clearly displayed around the larger waveforms. The 8.5” jog wheel, multi-function performance pads, 100mm dual-precision pitch fader, and navigation control allows for more creative mix control. Also, the entire set-up is powered by a single USB connection.

In related news, Serato has released Serato DJ Pro 2.5.1, which brings support for the LC6000 PRIME as an Official Serato Accessory.

Watch a Demonstration of Ableton Live 11’s Vinyl Synthesis Technology

Watch a Demonstration of Ableton Live 11's Vinyl Synthesis Technology

Italian DJ/producer John Type has demonstrated Ableton Live 11 in a creative video.

Via vinyl synthesis, Type has innovated playing and sequencing a vinyl record like a synthesizer with the new features of Ableton Live 11.  Vestax PDX-3000 and Technics SL-1210 turntables are impressively used to sync the beats of two distinctively different tracks to demonstrate the possibilities of vinyl synthesis. The Vestax PDX-3000 plays the melody of Daft Punk‘s 1995 single “Da Funk,” which morphs into the bass arpeggio of Donna Summer‘s 1978 classic “I Feel Love” because the analog pitch of the Technics SL-1210 changes the speed of the drums and Ableton Live 11 — via the Tempo Follower feature — stays in sync.

To pull off this impressive feat, a few pieces of hardware are required. Foremost, a turntable with MIDI pitch control — the Vestax Controller One / PDX-3000 or Reloop RP-8000 — is essential.  An audio and MIDI interface is needed to connect the audio from the mixer and control the MIDI turntable. As well, a MIDI controller is key.

Ableton Live 10 Suite / 11 Standard requires MIDI Envelope, Utility, and Auto Filter plugins to allow for this work to occur. Plus, a vinyl with a synth tone in the locked groove — commonly found in Battle Breaks / DJ Tools is key to allowing this DJ skill to be performed.

The tools and skills he used in the demo are available for free on his website. Type has also included a detailed breakdown of how he accomplished this.

Watch the three-minute video above.
