Hundreds of labels adopt Native Instruments’ STEMS technology
Native Instruments is consistently at the forefront of cutting-edge DJ technology and their newest development is no exception. Back at Winter Music Conference in Miami, the company unveiled STEMS, a brand new file format for DJs which allows songs to be packaged into separate, playable layers. A single song in the “.stem.mp4,” for instance, could contain a file for bass, a file for vocals, a file for drums,etc. Now some of the earliest adopters of the technology have been revealed, and a quick glance at the list of labels will surely silence any potential skeptics.
Ghostly International, M-nus, Hotflush Recordings, Hypercolour, Toolroom Records, Spinnin’ Records, Noir Music, Dim Mak, Rejected, and Get Physical are just a few of the hundreds of imprints which have signed on for the technology thus far.
