Adding & Removing
Right-Click on the Field Header to display the menu of available fields. Select or deselect any of the desired fields that you would prefer to be displayed.
When a field is added or removed the changes will be immediately displayed in the File List. There is no limit to the number of fields that can be displayed, but the more fields that get added will limit the amount of available space that each field can display.
Re-positioning & Resizing
Each field has the ability to be sorted by left clicking on the preferred field in the Field Header. Clicking the first time will sort the field in an ascending order (A-Z). Clicking on the same field a second time will reverse to a descending order (Z-A).
Key detection values displayed in the File List offer important information for mixing harmonically. The Key can be displayed in musical (ie. F#) or harmonic value (7B) in the Settings menu based on the scale preferred.
To change the setting from musical to harmonic (or vice versa) simply click on the Key Display value in the deck or alternatively go to Settings Options and set keyDisplay to the desired value.
When the key value is set to Harmonic it displays the keycode and color of the track based on the harmonic scale or Camelot Wheel.
To learn the basics about Harmonic Mixing and the Camelot Wheel please see this How-to Guide to get started.
The Key Difference field displays the difference in semitones based on the active deck. If the key matches or is off by 1 semitone to the current track on the master deck, a check mark will appear beside the key value to indicate that it is safe to mix harmonically.
A bright check mark indicates the song key in the active deck is compatible with the file in the browser
A darkened check mark indicates the song key in the active deck is off by 1 semitone with the file in the browser
No check mark indicates the song key in the active deck is NOT compatible with the file in the browser
Selecting Automatic Key Match from this menu will change the key by up to one semitone on the opposing deck when a track is loaded. If the track has a greater difference than one semitone, it will remain unaffected.
