Mixed In Key Mashup 1.5
Mixed In Key announces the release of Mashup 1.5 (Mac and Windows), a free update to its software application.
The application lets you beat-match two or more song files, edit them, and render the result as a new audio file. The software works in conjunction with Mixed In Key 5, and is designed to simplify the process of mashup creation.
Mashup 1.5’s user interface works as follows: Import songs into it from your Mixed In Key library, where they’ve been analyzed for harmonic content. Mashup will then do a tempo analysis and display each song in the browser area with its BPM listed.
Next, drag a song into Mashup’s audio editor, and its tempo will become the master for the project. If you’d prefer, you can manually enter in a different master tempo. As soon as one song is in the editor, the others in the browser display a harmonic compatibility rating in reference to the master song, helping you choose key-matched material. Then drag other songs into the editor window, and they’re automatically beat-matched to the master tempo, using Mashup 1.5’s time-stretching algorithm.
Then you can start editing. Mashup lets you graphically edit each song’s volume, as well as three bands of EQ, with breakpoint-style automation. You can also select and silence portions of the song.
New in Mashup 1.5 is the ability to adjust phase on individually selected segments, and use cut/copy/paste for editing song files. The updated editor allows you split an audio track intomultiple segments, which can then be moved around, to create your own arrangement. You can now loop audio by pasting multiple times.
When you’re done editing, you can export the result out as 320kbps MP3 file or a 16-bit, 44.1kHz WAV file.
