Akai Pro to offer stem separation

Akai Pro Stems

Stem separation allows you to split tracks apart, process them separately, or use them to mix, splice and sample without songs and sounds for smoother, more unique transitions in a DJ set.

For four decades, Akai Pro has stood at the forefront of sampling technology, from the legendary S950 to the iconic MPC platform that laid the foundation for some of the most impactful music genres in our industry. This art of sampling from vinyl evolved into a craft, enabling producers to extract sections of records, chopped and re-pitched into slices, creating an entirely new composition. Renowned producers such as The Alchemist to DJ Premier have become pioneers in this sampling art form known as Crate Digging.

This allows for a unique take on both DJing and producing music and sampling. Gone are the days of filtering to attempt to capture seperate elements of a sound – enabled further by Akai Pro and elevated by use with their huge range of hardware.

With MPC Stems, Akai Pro opens Pandora’s box, seamlessly integrating stems separation into the Iconic MPC workflow. This innovation not only delivers superior sound quality but also enhances the speed of the sampling process, ushering producers and beat makers into a new era of sampling creativity.
