Ever wondered how DJ gear is made? We’ll shed some light as we team up with Native Instruments to discuss this very subject in our BPM 2015 seminar.
The online stores are selling them, and NI has the hardware ready for them. And now you can make them. Yes — the Stems Creator is out in public beta today.
The open source Stems file format edges ever closer to release. And to tide you over, NI has released a teaser video of Stems files being mixed.
As NI’s open source Stems technology edges oh so slowly towards release, an official Stems website has appeared that should satisfy all questions.
NI has lopped the end off of a S8 and called it a Kontrol D2. Jared got a pair and used them with his S8, turntables, and just about anything he could lay his hands on. He wrote many words, and named it a review.
