When Stem Creator will be upgraded? Bitrate of the stem file is 256kpbs max since 7years
I don't know if some of you still use or at least know the Stem Concept (from Traktor S5/ S8 and F1)?
If you do not, it supposed to separate your track in 4 different audio tracks and give you the ability to add effects or play with the volume on each one, which was a pretty cool concept when it was released (in 2015) and could be a good solution for producer to play live (by making gap and playing the gaped section instead for example).
Virtual DJ and Serato also propose the same concept nowadays.
So if you are a producer and you would like to use this format with Traktor, you have to use a tool call Stem Creator, which has been devlopped by NI and released at the same time as those controllers I mentioned above. This tool is used to make a .stem.mp4 file which will be recognize by Traktor (and it's the only tool)
The problem is: Stem Creator hasn't be updated since its release (it has been 7 years!) AND it allows you to create your own stem files BUT the audio quality of your sound will be 256kbps maximum so it makes it unusable..
Some of us already talk about it in another discussion but we do not have answers, here are the details if you want to have a look: https://community.native-instruments.com/discussion/2480/how-do-i-prevent-stem-creator-from-compressing-the-audio-quality-so-badly
I'm a big fan of NI products but this problem has never been solved and I think it's not really fair from them to make people dream with super commercials and ads.
For example they provide few stems files made by artists with a 'normal audio quality rate' to make a demo of their controller and it's super nice, really! But they explain you can do your own without precising the render of your track won't get a bitrate above 256kpbs...
And I'm a bit pissed to realize I get naive and you took my money for one expensive controller which was based on this concept..
I really count on the NI community to bring this problem up to make them treat it asap so if you have the possibility to let a like or participate on this discussion to make things change please do it!
Thank you if you took time to read all the topic, and your support
Wish you the best!
