Is Native Instruments’ Stems the Format of the Future?

We’ve been eager to experiment with Native Instruments’ new Stems file format since it was announced back in March. Now that it’s finally here, DJcityTV’s Mojaxx has been playing with it around the clock.
In case you haven’t heard, Stems is Native Instruments’ attempt to create the first format specifically for DJ use. In a nutshell, it enables DJs to mix and blend four elements of a track.
DJs and producers will be able to assemble their own files with the Stems Creator Tool, which will be released soon.
So far, the only DJ software that supports Stems is Traktor. It’s possible that other companies might support it in the future, though.
Watch our review above and let us know if we should carry Stems on DJcity and if you would pay extra for them.
