Beatport now offering Stems!

Beatport has announced partnership with Native Instruments to offer Stem audio files for sale, which will be released soon with a premium roster of artists and labels. Full details on the new service can be found in at Stems Music

Symphonic Distribution is partnered with Native Instruments in this new product offering and all clients interested in participating in the new product offering are welcome to reach out to us to get started!

Native Instruments developed the new initiative as a format for creative DJ’ing. As an open multi-track audio format, Stems enhances creative possibilities for DJs, producers, and live performers. A Stem file contains a track split into four musical elements: A drums stem, a bassline stem, a melody stem, and a vocal stem for example.

The Stem format provides the ability to freely interact with a track’s different musical elements. Each ‘stem’ can be controlled independently to create instant new mixes, mashups, instrumentals, a cappellas, and more. Create instant track edits, mash-ups, a cappellas, and more by bringing different Stem parts in and out of the mix.

If you’re planning to have your label’s releases available as Stems, get in touch at stems@symphonicdistribution.com to be added to the list of labels releasing music in Stem format and be the first to try Stems!
