Audionamix’s XTRAX STEMS Now Compatible with Native Instruments’ Stems File Format

Audionamix, the global leader in audio source separation, will introduce XTRAX STEMS 1.1 at NAMM 2018 (New ACC North Hall Booth #19201). The latest update to XTRAX STEMS, the world’s first fully-automatic stem creation solution, provides compatibility with Native Instruments’ revolutionary Stems file format, allowing DJs, remix artists and producers to more easily integrate stem components into Native Instruments’ TRAKTOR(tm) line of digital DJ software and controllers. The latest update, which is free to XTRAX STEMS customers, offers stability improvements and workflow enhancements to further streamline the creative process for live sets, mashups and remixes.

XTRAX STEMS automatically separates songs into three parts: vocals, drums and remaining music. Its simple workflow is optimized for DJs and remix artists looking to separate songs into stem components for easy remixing, sampling and a cappella creation. XTRAX STEMS 1.1 makes it easier than ever to incorporate results into live sets by adding export compatibility with Native Instruments’ Stems file format, an open, multi-channel audio file containing a track split into its musical elements.

“The XTRAX STEMS 1.1 update demonstrates our commitment to addressing our users’ specific workflow needs,” says Maciej Zielinski, CEO of Audionamix. “Adding compatibility with Native Instruments will open new creative pathways for our customers. Artists who use XTRAX STEMS and TRAKTOR now have a streamlined workflow for their creative process.”

To ensure a simple, intuitive workflow, XTRAX STEMS 1.1 allows users to import any song, automatically separate it into its three components, then export the separated content as a Stem file. This single Stem file can then be shared and used directly with TRAKTOR to independently control and process vocals, drums and remaining music elements.

Beginning on January 25, XTRAX STEMS customers can launch the application and download the free 1.1 update. Audionamix will be showing XTRAX STEMS 1.1 for the first time at NAMM 2018, including a product demo from Doc “Vaporz” Kylian, a Los Angeles-based artist, producer and audio engineer. Doc Vaporz specializes in audio source separation and will demonstrate how to leverage the strengths of XTRAX STEMS 1.1 and Native Instruments’ TRAKTOR to produce the perfect mashup.

“The ability to automatically separate my songs with XTRAX STEMS and control the individual elements in TRAKTOR opens my own catalog up to re-interpretation,” says Doc Vaporz. “It allows me to add more original flavor to remixes and mashups.”
