Plan your playlist like David Guetta
David Guetta gets ready to play Festival shows by putting together a playlist. He sequences them together to hear how the mixes will sound in a real environment. You can do the same thing with our Mashup software and the same algorithm that David Guetta is using (he's been using our software called Mixed In Key for 10 years)
Tell a story with your mix
The goal of a DJ should be to tell a story through your mix, to create new and fresh sounds and experiences by blending music tastefully, and carefully. Oftentimes this comes down to track choice and harmonic transitions between said tracks.
This is where Mixed In Key’s Mashup software comes into play.
Analyze your music for harmonic compatibility
You can easily select the tracks we’ve been planning to play out and import them into Mashup's browser by dragging the files or playlists from iTunes or Finder.
Immediately Mashup starts to analyze those files, tagging and sorting them by bpm and track info.
Get mashup ideas
Once you select your first song from your playlist, you can now sort the rest of the tracks by harmonic compatibility to easily view which songs from your playlist mix well with others.
From here you can use the program as a reference point. You can now carefully plan out the mix with visual cues to what songs will mix well together. Create and record the mix directly in Mashup by editing the audio together by dragging more files into the Mashup window.
Edit your tracks
With a right click you can split, cut, copy and paste your audio in order to manipulate it to your desired outcome.
In the right hand side of your track selections you can alter the BPM, phase and volume parameters for quick beat matching, subtle editing and 3rd party VST plugin action.
Craft your own sound
With these tools we can quickly edit the audio to create breathtaking intros, tension building breakdowns, and uniquely mashed tracks for an unforgettable live performance.
