How does one split sample "stems"?

I am trying to load MP3 songs into Live Intro to be sampled on PC.  In a YouTube tutorial, I saw a song split into its parts (i.e. vocals, drums, lead, and bass) by using the Command button on Mac.  The tutorial says that the Control button is the PC equivalent, but I tried pressing Control and the split did not occur.  Am I missing something here, or is it a limitation of Live Intro?

    What you are trying to do is impossible. You simply cannot load a track and then split it into its components.

    ...unless it's a stems format file. I think they're going to be *.mp4 files anyway. But otherwise impossible without a massive amount work, and only then you may not get it exactly as you asked.
