MarsPhoenix;3194486 said:Uhhhh.A LOT of bands and representatives I've talked to did NOT know what the term 'stem' referred to at first. I've had to say "I mean the separate instruments" quite a few times.I think our friend is going to be just fine.
braddavisrevue;3195971 said:I get it people. But why use STEM? when TRACK is more commonly used in the industry. 'STEM' led me to believe there was so more to it then it actually is. So, no problem.
