Cue Curve / Cue Point Detection Algorithm
The last version of Mixed In Key, released in January 2015, incorporated a new system that automatically detected and placed cue points for Serato and Traktor users. This new version continues to do that, but has incorporated some new functionality as well:
“The bottom of the audio player shows our new invention, the Cue Curve. If you see a tall peak that looks like Mount Fuji, that means you can drop a perfect cue point there.
Your Cue Points are always snapped to the beat. Mixed In Key will load the official Serato and Traktor beatgrid, and will make sure that your Cue Points line up. You can edit everything yourself, and sync with Serato and Traktor automatically.”
The new waveform view in Mixed in Key 8 allows DJs to quickly see the volume of the melody and the transients created by the drumbeat – which makes it easier to find sections of the song to place cue points.
Metabliss ID3 Tag Manager Built In
Mixed In Key has incorporated of their standalone MetaBliss ID3 tag manager app into this new version 8 of the key detection software. It allows DJs to treat their library like an Excel spreadsheet – jumping into individual ID3 fields and cleaning them up.
You can also quickly correct issues like extra spaces, extraneous promo links in the track comments, and change the case automatically to a number of options.
