Mashup 1.5 Released, New Editing and Beat Matching Features

We wrote about Mashup at the beginning of February – but today we’ve gotten the word that a number of our key complaints about the first version of Mashup have been solved with the new 1.5 version of the software. The new version seems to bring the editing tools up a bit, with copy-paste capablities and looping. Check out the full press release below!

Miami Beach, Florida—April 4, 2012— Mixed In Key (Mixedinkey.com), proudly announces the release of Mashup 1.5 (Mac and Windows), a free update to its innovative and powerful mashup-creation software application. The enhanced features of the new version make it easier than ever to construct beat-matched and harmonically compatible mashups from two or more song files. Mashup 1.5 works in conjunction with the company’s harmonic-mixing application, Mixed In Key 5, to create a complete mashup-creation toolkit for DJs, producers, remixers, and podcasters.

“With Mixed In Key Mashup 1.0, we made it possible to create professional-sounding mashups in under five minutes,” says company president Yakov Vorobyev. “With version 1.5, you have even more creative control.”

New features in Mashup 1.5 include:

  • Improved beat matching
  • Cut/copy/paste editing of audio sections within a single track
  • Looping of audio
  • Splitting of audio tracks into multiple segments that can be easily moved around to create new arrangements.
  • Phase adjustment of individually selected segments
  • Numerous performance and stability enhancements

These additions augment Mashup’s already powerful feature set, which offers 3-band EQ with breakpoint automation, automatic import of the Mixed In Key library,

BPM and harmonic-compatibility rating of songs, customizable tempos, automatic beatmatching, selecting and silencing of song sections, bouncing to 320kbps MP3 or 16-bit, 44.1kHz WAV files, and more.

Mashup retails for only $39. If you’re a registered owner of Mixed In Key Mashup 1.0, the upgrade is free.
