A new era for DJing starts now with Serato Stems

The wait is finally over: Serato Stems is here. After a successful beta period, this much-anticipated feature is now officially ready for use in live settings, and will unlock a new level of musical creativity that both DJs and audiences can look forward to experiencing.

The latest update to Serato DJ Lite and Pro 3.0 brings official support for the revolutionary Stems format, which allows DJs to create four different audio stems in real-time, and control those stems independently while maintaining the most supreme audio quality in the game.

Over 50,000 DJs from across the globe joined the beta testing period, contributing to over 1 million sessions to date and making it the most popular beta in Serato history. Now with the official release, DJs will be able to take their sets to the next level, creating their own unique sound with on-the-fly edits and smooth transitions that are made possible with Stems.

Skratch Bastid vs Stems

To celebrate this official release, world-renowned DJ and producer Skratch Bastid has crafted a new routine that showcases some of the possibilities for DJs with the new Stems format. The routine features songs from Fool’s Gold Records’ catalogue including tracks by The Brothers Macklovitch (A-Trak and Dave1 of Chromeo); Boston-based producer Durkin; and Saturday Love, a collaboration between DJ/producer Kon and vocalist Fiorious.

Introducing the RANE FOUR

In addition to the release of Stems, Serato is also announcing forthcoming support for the Rane FOUR, the first controller of its kind with dedicated stems controls. You can find more information about it here.
