Traktor Pro 2.10.1 + Stem View is one canny move by the guys and girls at Native Instruments, that will no doubt have all Traktor users brimming from ear to ear. There's no doubt whatsoever that STEMS have been a huge success, giving djs the ability to remix tracks (STEMS format) on the fly, but with the only setback being, you had to use either a D2, S5 or S8 controller to see the STEMS in action... Well not anymore!
This Traktor Stem View announcement also includes built-in support for Kontrol S4 users, a discount on Stems, and 65 free premium Stem tracks for everyone to download. This is music to my ears as I have an S4 and love STEMS, but just couldnt justify or was willing to make the jump to fully submerge myself into it - now I have no excuse. I had a quick play earlier and just like the last time I used an S8, I got lost in the music for 2 hours without even knowing... STEMS really do take your mixes to another level.The main overview of the new update...
- Traktor Pro 2.10.1 is a free update.
