XNL Audio has announced the release of Addictive Trigger, an intelligent drum replacement plug-in for Windows and Mac.

NI’s Stem Creator – first standalone app developed specifically for Stem file creation

September 30, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 


Native Instruments has released the official full version of Stem Creator, the first standalone application developed specifically for Stem file creation.

Available now for free download via stems-music.com, the new tool provides a simple way to create high-quality Stem files using a drag-and-drop interface and integrated mastering controls to fine-tune the final mixed Stem file’s sound. Stems enables producers, DJs, labels, online stores, and the entire world to create their own Stem files and discover a new music experience.

A Stem file contains a track split into four musical elements: A drums stem, a bassline stem, a melody stem, and a vocal stem for example. Each ‘stem’ can be controlled independently to create instant new mixes, mashups, instrumentals, a cappellas, and more.

Stem Creator is designed for the sole purpose of processing audio files into the four-channel stem.mp4 format – streamlining Stem file creation for simplicity and ease of use. To create a Stem file, creators first prepare and export four isolated musical parts of a track from their DAW or audio editor, along with the final mixed version – five uncompressed audio files in total. Then each file is imported into the Stem Creator where a limiter and compressor are adjusted to match the stems with the volume and dynamics of the original stereo master. Standard metadata like track name, artist, and album can then be edited, along with advanced options like stem name and color, catalog number, and album art before finally exporting the finished Stem file.

Stem Creator is available for download at no charge. A developer toolkit will make the technology behind Stems readily available for anyone to integrate into future software and hardware.

Daft Punk Unchained – Official BBC Worldwide Trailer – Documentary

September 28, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The first ever documentary film on the most secretive duo in the world. The epic story of two uncompromising artists. With the participation of their closest collaborators and friends from Pharrell Williams to Nile Rodgers, Giorgio Moroder, Kanye West, Michel Gondry, Paul Williams, Peter Lindbergh, Leiji Matsumoto and Pete Tong.

Daft Punk Unchained, directed by Hervé Martin Delpierre, is the first independent film which explores an exceptional pop culture phenomenon of the last twenty years: Daft Punk. Between fiction and reality, magic and secrets, theatricality and humility, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo have created a unique artistic universe. Throughout their career they have remained determined to control every link in the chain of their creative work. The film highlights key moments of their story, from their first school band in Paris to their historic concert at Coachella festival in 2006 and their spectacular triumph at the 2014 Grammy Awards for the album « Random Access Memories ». In an era of globalisation and the expansion of social media, they have refused to show their own faces and they orchestrate every detail of their appearances as robots. The documentary includes archives of radio interviews with Daft Punk, rare footage and exclusive interviews with their friends and close collaborators from Pharrell Williams to Nile Rodgers, Giorgio Moroder, Kanye West, Michel Gondry, Paul Williams, Peter Lindbergh, Leiji Matsumoto and Pete Tong.

Trying to assign 3D touch to MIDI after touch

‘3D Touch’ is Apple’s name for the updated screens on its latest iPhones that let the screen sense how much pressure you apply to the display. The ability to sense pressure introduces new options for creating musical controllers and software instruments for iPhones. Previously, aftertouch has been dependent on having an aftertouch-capable hardware MIDI controller.
