Allen & Heath, manufacturer of the leading Xone mixer range, has teamed up with US software designer, Mixed In Key, to offer new software which enables digital DJ’s to analyse and harmonise tracks.
Xone Mixed in Key is Windows and MAC OS X compatible software, which analyses MP3 and .WAV files, identifies the key of a track, and highlights which other tracks are harmonically compatible. This eliminates the possibility of key clashes whilst performing live, and allows the DJ to analyse their entire music collection, discovering compatible songs.
Mixed In Key president, Yakov Vorobyev told us, “Xone Mixed in Key is a fantastic innovation for DJ’s, and eliminates the time-consuming and laborious task of manually detecting the root note of every track. Allen & Heath has a golden reputation in the DJ community, and we're excited to offer Xone Mixed In Key software to a wider audience.� Xone designer, Andy Rigby-Jones had this to say, “The explosion of digital DJ’ing over the past couple of years has introduced a wealth of technical advantages to the art of DJ’ing. Xone Mixed in Key is a case in point. DJ’s have instant access to thousands upon thousands of new music files and this software can quickly and easily enable them to put tracks into musical context.� Pricing and Availability:
Xone Mixed In Key is available as a digital download at a RRP of $58 USD. Both Mac OS X and Windows versions are available. More information:
