Back in 2020, VirtualDJ introduced the first real-time stem separation for professional DJs. At the time, the feature started what is today shaping to be a global revolution in the entertainment industry, with more actors joining the wagon every day. But today, after 2.5 years more of research, VirtualDJ 2023 with Stems 2.0 takes it to the next level. Let’s take a look at the new technology.
The software has a new engine that now achieves a truly revolutionary stem separation that is almost indistinguishable from author-made multi-tracks. Based on advanced Artificial Intelligence and Deep Neural Networks Machine Learning, VirtualDJ 2023 can extract in real time from any track its basic components: acapella, instrumental, drums, etc.
Stems separation in VirtualDJ already wowed most of the top DJs in the world, including David Guetta. However, the new ability of VirtualDJ 2023 to get studio-like stems quality without the need to have the source material, truly opens the door to a new way of DJing for all. For instance, Stems 2.0 engine gives you extraordinary clarity in acapellas. This can be achieved using the stems performance pads for instant isolation, or by gradually isolating the vocals using stems on EQ option. Stems 2.0 can also extract the instrumental only. Moreover, you can isolate just parts of it like the kick, snare, piano, and bass.
With the software’s technology continuing to get better, it’s a must-try. Plus, VirtualDJ is free for non-commercial use and costs $19/month for professionals. You can download it on the official website.
