I can't take the file down even if I wanted to, once it's up on filefront it stays there until it gets pruned b/c of too few downloads. Which might have already happened as the link throws me an error.

Maybe so, but in my defense I *did* explain what stem tracks are in my initial post.

Same here. So for anyone hoping for stems for TKID or whatever, sorry, it ain't gonna happen. At least not without me moving around dozens of gigabytes of samples between drives and installing Cubase again. And frankly I have better things to do with my time.

Like I said, in some sessions if someone is using EWQLSO Platinum, you can have up to 50 tracks for strings, at least! For a 5 minute song, that's 250 minutes of .wav files, which is a lot of space...just for strings.
I see what you mean, but instrument families is a bit too limited IMO. You won't be able to do a whole lot of remixing with a single stereo track with *all* strings, for example. OTOH, when you start dividing everything up into sections, you end up with a ton of large files.
As for the SS stems, I rendered the outputs of the two instances of sfz+ I was using. 2x8 outputs, 16 tracks. So some things had to end up on the same tracks, e.g. flutes and clarinets are on a single stem track. That's also something to take into account: what your sampler can actually output as discrete tracks. Someone using a multi-timbral sample player with only one output won't be able to create stems at all :/
