Elements Vs Stems

In ADD there are two main subtypes: Elements and Stems.


Stems are typically longer audio files that are made up of a series of smaller parts. In the stem pictured below, you can see 3 different elements divided by dotted lines. By pressing (⌘D) you will be able to separate this stem into individual elements. 


A very easy way to work with stems is by using the Presets from the Library window.


When double clicking or dragging a preset into the timeline, each stem will be assigned to a new track. All the stems together create a single composition.
