Whiteboard

Some free stems to download: http://assets-cdn.native-instruments.com/public_downloads/free_stems_for_traktor_pro_2.zip

Stems SDK free downloads (registration required):
http://www.stems-music.com/stems-is-for-developers/

NOTE -- we need to read the SDK license extremely carefully and probably get a lawyer's advice as to whether it is GPL-compatible.

UPDATE: The SDK license is finally available and it's not good news:

Maybe reverse engineering or clean room design could be an option? Again a lawyer's advice would be a good idea.

some sort of V1 bare-minimum support -- maybe giving the user the option to load all four in one deck (full mix) or arbitrary combinations of the stems: TODO
shared beatgrid for the four tracks: TODO
some sort of group-specific master sync: TODO
skins and controller support: TODO
