HOT GEAR Audionamix XTRAX Stems Software Audionamix has released XTRAX Stems 1.1, the latest update to its fully-automatic stem creation solution. It provides com- patibility with Native Instruments’ Stems file format, allowing DJs, remix artists, and producers to more easily integrate stem components into Native Instruments’ Traktor line of digital DJ software and controllers. 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 to then incorporate results into live sets by adding export compat- ibility with Native Instruments’ Stems file format, an open, multi-channel audio file containing a track split into its musical elements.
