Frequently asked Questions
What is a myxstem?
A myxstem is a Stand-Alone-App version of a music album, featuring mute, solo, pan and fade of each stem (instrument) of every song, along with tempo control & looping. On their iPhone or Android device, listeners can build the perfect mix to play, learn- or sing-along, and also view the score, sheet music and lyrics.
What’s the quality of Myxstem stems?
When it comes to listening to all the artists you love, we prefer to use the authentic original quality stems provided by the licence holders. If, for whatever reason, the originals are not available, we can prepare high quality stems from the recordings.
Do I need the stems for my songs to make a myxstem?
No, we can prepare the individual stems from your original master project files if required.
If you prefer to supply us the stems yourself we have information on how to prepare your stems that we will provide during onboarding.
