Revolutionary Technology

A New frontier in Djing

VirtualDJ uses advanced AI technology to separate any song into a multi-track, during the mix, in real-time. Allowing DJs to adjust on the fly the components of their tracks (vocals, instruments, kicks, hi hats, etc) to create new mash-ups, remixes and transitions. This opens the door to whole new ways of mixing that were simply not possible before, and will forever change the way DJs mix.



VirtualDJ first introduced real-time stems separation back in 2020, and started this revolution of DJing. Since then, the hardware market kept evolving, opening up new possibilities of what can be reasonably done with consumer laptops. Today, VirtualDJ 2023 uses our latest Stems 2.0 engine, that offers the best quality in the market for stem separation, with incredible clarity on acapellas!

Our Stems 2.0 engine gives you extraordinary clarity in acapellas. By isolating the vocals-only part of the song the DJ can be creative in whole new ways. All easily accessible using the stems performance pads for instant isolation, or gradually isolate the vocals using stems on EQ option.


Original source:

Our Stems 2.0 engine can as easily remove the vocals and play only the insturmental parts of any song. Additionally you can isolate or remove just parts of the instrumental, such as drums, bass, hi-hat and melody. Get creative in whole new ways. The possibilities are endless!

Full Quality

30x speed

In addition to delivering the best sound quality in the market, our stems separation has been carefully optimized to also be the fastest.

Stem separation speed on a typical PC gamer laptop with Nvidia RTX is 30x (that means 2s to split 1mn of song), and 20x on a new M1 Mac.

Full Speed

700x speed

But our stems separation can also be run in Fast mode, with a reduced (but still impressive) quality, to save even more on resources, or to run on older hardware.

With then just 0.08s to split 1mn of song on a PC gamer laptop, this is by far the fastest stem separation on the market.
