Beat mixing is a skill used by professional DJs to blend two songs together seamlessly. Generally speaking, a DJ would beat mix when transitioning from one song to another, when appropriate. Beat mixing is not a vital skill for all DJs. It is however, a very powerful skill that can enhance your DJ performance, regardless of what type of audience you are playing to. It also allows greater creativity, and can provide a smoother sounding performance if done correctly.
OtsAV's Automated Beat Mixing feature allows you to perform perfect mixes every time, without the need to calculate or guess the intro or outro lengths of songs, match BPMs, adjust volume levels, or guess what type of mix to perform during a gig. Our philosophy on automated beat mixing is that every beat mix is clean, accurate, and would emulate (or better) what a professional DJ would perform in real life. Automated Beat Mixing is a very powerful feature, which can give you the edge over your competition!
The choice is ultimately yours! There is nothing stopping you from taking full control, and mixing on-the-fly. Automated Beat Mixing takes the guess work out of matching BPMs, setting appropriate volume levels, and knowing where to start and stop the mix. Imagine setting up a playlist of your most requested songs, pressing play, and walking away. Once your music is setup for ABM (Automated Beat Mixing), you can comfortably leave your console, knowing that the beat mixing will be professional, and in a lot of cases, better than what you could achieve manually. This leaves you to do other more important things, like mingling with guests, or taking that toilet break!
With the universal BeatMorphTM system, information only has to be set once and it will mix into any other beat-tracked song professionally and smoothly. OtsAV will automatically beat mix the songs over the maximum length possible while maintaining appropriate volume levels throughout the transition, changing the primary focus at the "magical" match-point, and will keep the songs in sync using time-scaling, and change the tempo leading up to the match-point if in "restore mode". Unlike other systems which require manual adjustments for every single song mix combination, and therefore are only good for assisting, the BeatMorphTM system is a set-song-once universal system which when set correctly will work automatically and effectively with virtually unlimited song combinations.
