the displayed number didn't change


Which number? Displayed where?


The deck displayed BPM of the song playing in deck A. Usually when you adjust the pitch fader, it reflects the change. When doing the above, it did not reflect the change. Now that I think more, the pitch fader knob may have stayed centered. It may have shown the color shadow of where it was automatically adjusted to.

Wouldn't it have stayed the same because it was beat matched to deck B?

Also some skins show the track's original BPM on the deck rather than the actual live BPM after the pitch fader has moved.

Some of the DJs I know only play 128bpm.

Housey boring crap. Night after night.


I had a DJ for one of our boogies play six hours of the same baseline at a constant BPM. Man, this really got people aggravated. I would have rather listened to pink noise.

I keep right around 128 because the tracks I like to mix in that genre are 125 - 130 with a majority at 128. However, the energy of my song's change constantly. They give you a feeling of being faster or slower while being at the same BPM. 128 all night is fine if done right.

I would be interested to know the OP's NEED to stay at that BPM. I also wonder if the automix editor allows the change of BPM as well.


That would be boring on a club.
I see it in other eyes where someone wants to create a set for example a workout class.
They like to keep the bpm pumping and have the same beat for that hour or something.

Havent tried but here is something that should work (in theory)... tricky .. but all u need is a deck that your Automix deck will sync to.
- Enable Automix on Deck 1
- Enable Beatlock on Deck 2
- Set Deck 2 as MASTER Deck (use a 4 Deck skin for that or a custom button assigned as ... deck 2 masterdeck , so that syncing with Beatlock to be performed based on this Deck (2)
- Load any track on Deck 2 and start playing, use the Pitch fader to set its BPM to the desired value (the one that Deck 1 will follow) and set its Volume down
- Start Deck 1

This did work for me. I kept a running loop on the second deck. Each incoming song matched to it.
------------------

On my software, this doesn't work. The incoming track does ALWAYS mix into the loop. What do I make wrong?

Posted Sun 10 Nov 19 @ 8:12 pm
The reason why I want to have this feature is to avoid a strong tempo increase or reduction if the incoming track is much faster or slower than the running track.

On deck two set the looped track. Then, on deck one, load the first song on your automix list. Start it, then turn on automix. You should see it preload the next song in the list onto deck one.

I've seen a lot of great club sets that run at 128 all night long. I think it depends on the energy of the songs. I've seen BPM changes work also. To each his own. I don't think there is a wrong way if the audience is enjoying it.

True, but my point was the example of a workout class
The people who training in those classes like to have the same tempo through the whole workout for cardio etc..

I completely forgot about those "workout" CDs.

I have this one from 1994

This reminds me of the guy who went on Dragon's Den with his auto-mixing software...

Initially the idea was to sell mix CDs to the public, but when that didn't take off, he went into the fitness market.

His algorithm (however it's done) is the best I've ever heard from any kind of automatic mixing. It's a shame it never got taken up by any DJ software companies.

Where's the Gabba? owt under 170bpm is no workout... hang about they've got "on a ragga tip", fair enough XD

Hang on, 13 pence a track including a dub licence - that's bloody good value, I bought a load of those tracks back in the day and paid 10 times the amount [on C90's].

It was quite hard to pay attention to the music there!

IMO that's more of a sequence than a mix. Reminds me of Skrillex tracks - just a series of noises one after the other. :-)
