What's the Difference Between STEMS & MULTITRACKS?


The terminology often gets confused. So frequently, people might be asking for stems when really they require the multitrack, and vice versa.

It's a common misconception and, sadly, the wrong terms get thrown around all the time.


The main difference between the two is as follows:


STEMS


  • Stereo files created from groups within a mix

  • Usually, around 5-10 stems are given

  • Examples: Drums, Bass, Guitars, Keys, Vocals, FX, Misc

  • Mixed (usually)



MULTITRACKS


  • ALL of the individual elements in a mix

  • much higher track count

  • Unmixed (usually)


They're the bullet points, but feel free to watch the video below for some more detail and also some examples of where you would require each one!
