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 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.
"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," writes Mixed In Key president, Yakov Vorobyev.
"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," concludes Xone designer, Andy Rigby-Jones.
