What is a STEM file?

A STEM file is an open multi-track audio format, that 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.
