so you have sync, and you can determine with the key if tracks mix very well, why not write a program that can record transitions, then if a large enough database of transitions is established, just randomly pick one a mix two tracks together.

i guess this will be better then most DJs who use sync and key matching :D

I don't DJ but what was wrong with DJ'ing before? Why has this suddenly become an issue?

From music point of view, I have ( I think ) perfect pitch, I can hear a chord and know what it is right there and then, hear a scale and recognise the intervals but if I was a DJ, that wouldn't help me, neither would inaccurate software.

Whatever happened to intros and outros anyway? Surely a lack of tonality on a track in the intro/outro phase is still common?

intros and outros are fine, but every mix ?
the thing that first tripped me out when listening to DJs mixing electronic music was the mixing of riffs/melodies/soundscapes, thats where the true DJ skills come in, DJs who can find those magical mixes out of a box of tunes

anyone can mix hats and claps

well you just have to find the right tracks. some work better then others.

what i really hate is when people clash vocals. such a lazy mistake.

Border Community put BPM and keys on their vinyl.

I always mixed by ear and when I listened to some of my old mixes I was pleased by how they went together.

By the time you speed something up the key is surely changed anyway.
