Native Instruments has updated Traktor Pro to version 2.10.1. This free update extends control of the Stems format to all Traktor users, and implements the Stem View directly into Traktor Pro’s Stem Decks, making it possible to control Stems with any Traktor setup or mapped third-party controller. The update also makes the Traktor Kontrol S4 officially Stems-ready.
As part of the Traktor Pro Update, NI is offering 65 Stem tracks for free! And partnering online stores are offering 25% off Stems releases for a limited time.
Adapted from the hardware display version for Traktor Kontrol S8, S5, and D2, the in-app Stem View provides a clear, color-coded overview of a track’s four Stems with multi-track control over the Stem track’s elements. Owners of the Traktor Kontrol S4 can now expand their performance possibilities and experience hands-on control of Stem files. Each stem can be muted and unmuted using the Remix Slot buttons and pads. And each stem’s volume or filter can be controlled using the loop encoders. Traktor Kontrol F1, is not left out of the action, and also becomes a powerful and portable way to control Stems.
Both demo and licensed Traktor software owners can start playing Stems right away with 1.5 GB worth of free Stems tracks available from native-instruments.com. The package includes 65 high-quality Stem files of varying tempos and genres derived from selected Maschine Expansions. Additionally, online retailers Beatport, Bleep, Juno, Traxsource, Wasabeat, and whatpeopleplay are each offering 25% off their repertoire of Stems releases for one week only – until February 29, 2016 – customers can enter a voucher code at checkout to receive the discount.
The free Traktor Pro 2.10.1 update is now available for download from the NI Service Center.
