What is MIXTRAX?

Get ready to transform your playlists! Pioneer’s innovative MIXTRAX technology turns your music into a non-stop mix a club DJ would be proud of. The advanced software identifies and analyzes a variety of musical attributes, including tempo, beats per minute (BPM) and more to identify the perfect transition point for each song. During playback, tracks seamlessly blend together with a variety of DJ-inspired effects. MIXTRAX is a great way to enjoy all of your music, but works particularly well with upbeat dance/electronic and hip-hop tunes.
