Mixed in Key has teased a new DJ software, which looks like a simpler, smoother take on Traktor, but with a few mysterious twists. Analysing the screenshot above – which has just appeared on the Mixed In Key Facebook page – we can see (naturally) key detection and energy level built in to the library, pointing to a strong recommendation engine.
Also, If you look closely, you can spot the words “dynamic playlist” on one of the folders above the library, indicating some kind of auto playlist or smart crate option for dynamic playlist creation. But it’s the mysterious coloured patches around the waveforms that we suspect are hiding the features that Mixed In Key is hoping will stand this DJ software out from the rest. What are they covering? Well by the look of it, with a beta due soon, we won’t have to wait long to find out.
If the company can crack from the off the really big task any new DJ software has to deal with – namely, being compatible with pretty much all the main DJ controllers, out of the box, no fuss – then this could be an interesting alternative to the big boys. Mixed In Key certainly has enough goodwill out there to be capable of making a dent in the market if the price and features are right.
