Allen & Heath Updates Xone Mixed In Key To Version 3.0
Create Perfect Mash-Ups
Allen & Heath have updated their harmonic mixing software, Xone Mixed in Key, to version 3.0. Using a patent-pending process for key detection, the new version, which the concern calls “next-generation,” provides even more accurate results, including multiple keys for more variety, and now integrates with Native Instruments Traktor, M-Audio Torq, and Ableton Live.
The new version detects keys like a human musician. To accomplish this task the company hired two professional musicians to analyze hundreds of songs.Â Their results were inputed into an artificial intelligence technology to teach Version 3 the technique.
Xone Mixed in Key analyzes MP3 and WAV files, identifies the key of a track, and highlights which other tracks are harmonically compatible.
Version 3.0 can also show multiple key results for a single audio file if the results fit the song perfectly. For example, if the song is equally compatible with A Minor and D Minor, Xone Mixed In Key will show both results. This gives DJs more creative freedom about choosing which songs to play next. Additionally, Version 3.0 contains improved ID3 Tag support to store key results into MP3 files. Version 3.0 integrates seamlessly with other DJ software such as Native Instruments Traktor, M-Audio Torq, Ableton Live, and music players like Apple iTunes, where Mixed In Key can create harmonic iPod playlists.
Xone Mixed In Key is available for Windows and Mac OS X as a digital download for $58. Every purchase comes with free lifetime upgrades. More information on Allen & Heath Xone Mixed In Key 3.0.
