Pioneer Mixtrax Technology Automatically Mixes Music Library Tunes


Pioneer today introduced MIXTRAX, a technology which creates a nonstop mix of an entire music library.

Designed for music lovers and the club-going audience, MIXTRAX takes the music from an iPhone/iPod or USB/SD device and plays it back with added transitions and effects creating a virtual DJ inside select Pioneer products. MIXTRAX is implemented in a variety of Pioneer car audio products and STEEZ products designed for the dance community.

MIXTRAX technology transforms a consumer's music library into customizable tracks that can be processed by select Pioneer products. Using Pioneer's free MIXTRAX music management software, the user's entire music collection is analyzed and various musical attributes including tempo and beats per minute (BPM) are identified. The software then tags each song and creates an assortment of playlists categorized in different genres and musical styles such as Beat, Chill, and Thump. The analysis of the software identifies the best transition points of each song in the music library and mixes and blends the tracks together, much like a DJ performing live.

Additionally, the Mix Style can be selected between Active, Standard and Simple, adjusting the intensity of the effects and transitions used, and the duration of each track within the mix. The custom MIXTRAX playlists can be transferred to a USB/SD memory device and played through an assortment of Pioneer in-car Audio Video products and STEEZ products, as well as transferred directly into STEEZ products for playback.

To quickly enjoy nonstop mix of music, a simpler version of the technology called MIXTRAX EZ is built-in to several Pioneer in-dash products for both in-car CD receivers and in-car Audio Video receivers. Featured in new in-car CD receivers, three types of DJ-style transitions (Flanger, Echo and Crossfade) and six sound effects (Backspin 1 and 2, Echo, Trans, Roll and Scratch) are automatically added between songs.

To further enhance the "dance club in your car" atmosphere, the illumination buttons and display of the in-car CD receivers pulsates and changes color. Two modes of illumination (defeatable), each with six color patterns, create different light effects.

The third in-vehicle implementation of MIXTRAX is in an iPhone App that can be used with Pioneer's AppRadio, the first in-vehicle product designed to utilize the smartphone's processing power, storage capacity, network connectivity and apps as the primary source for its information and entertainment capabilities. Similar to the MIXTRAX software, the MIXTRAX iPhone App compares the tracks stored in the iPhone's music library with Pioneer's list of analyzed music stored in its Internet servers to identify musical characteristics and create custom playlists with DJ style effects and transitions for a nonstop mix of songs that can be played back and controlled through the Pioneer AppRadio.
