AUTOMIX POINTS



When VirtualDJ first analyzes a track for BPM, it also creates several POIs for different Automix types. Depending on the structure of the audio information, VirtualDJ will create up to 8 different Automix points. These points can be adjusted and deleted, however, if the track is re-analyzed the Automix Points will return to their originally analyzed positions.

Mix ‘Tempo’ Start/Exit
Matches the tempo of the outgoing and incoming tracks to make a seamless mix.
Mix ‘Cut’ Start/Exit
Used if the BPM of the outgoing and incoming tracks are too far apart to beat match.
Mix ‘Fade’ Start/Exit
Marks the very beginning/end of the track even if silence is present.
Mix ‘Full’ Start/Exit
Marks the very beginning/end of the audio of the track (no silence).


Depending on the Automix Type selected, each Automix Point has it’s own purpose and preferred order. If the preferred POI is not available, the Automix engine will select the next preferred point. Not all POIs are used in every Automix Type.
