Where To Find Free Stems For Music Production
Cymatics has always put a major focus on providing music producers with all the audio stems for every melody loop we include in our sample packs. Having access to the track stems can be a major advantage for producers because it gives you more control over the sounds being used and opens more opportunities to alter and arrange them to your liking.
Now newer producers might be asking, what are music stems?
Stems are the groups of individual elements that make up a track. Commonly mistaken for multitracks, stems can be a single track or multiple tracks grouped together with processing/fx applied to them.
For example, the vocals in a song would be one stem, this vocal stem could contain the main vocal, as well as ad-libs, and harmonizing tracks - all with their own fx applied exactly the same as it is in the full mix.
Now that we’ve covered exactly what music stems are and how they can help your music production, we’ve put together a short list of our best sample packs that include all types of track stems.
Orchid - Premium Sample Collection
A personal favorite, with over 3GB of content, including melody loops, one shots, guitar loops, drum loops, and percussion loops. And the best part is every melody, drum loop, guitar, and vocal comes with full stems included.
Orchid actually ended up having so many different stem files we had to make two separate folders for them because the amount of files was so big!
And like everything Cymatics releases, everything in Orchid is 100% royalty free.
