Mixed In Key has released Mashup for Windows and Mac OS X, a new software application that lets you quickly and easily beatmatch two or more audio files, edit them, and save the results to a new audio file.
Mashup uses Mixed In Key 5’s harmonic algorithm to find compatible songs, and makes the process of mash-up creation incredibly easy. Import songs into Mashup, and it will analyse them for key and tempo. Next, drag a song into Mashup’s ultra-fast 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 added, the song browser will show you which other songs in your collection are 100% harmonically compatible with your original song. Then drag other songs into the editor window, and they’re automatically beat-matched to the master tempo, using Mashup’s professional time-stretching algorithm.
Now you can start editing. Mashup lets you graphically edit each song’s volume, as well as three bands of EQ, all with breakpoint-style automation. The editor also lets you select and silence portions of songs, adjust phase, slide them in time, and more. When you’re done editing, you can export the result to a 320kbps MP3 file or a 16-bit, 44.1kHz WAV file.
If you already use Mixed In Key 5, Mashup will load its database and will skip the analysis step. Mashup and Mixed In Key 5 work flawlessly with each other.
Mashup is available for $39 (approx. £24) and comes with free updates until Version 2.99.
