    Hi,
    which is the best software for automatic DJ mixes.
    It should analyze the tempo and speed and create basic auto mixes which are 'acceptable'.
    It also needs a way to mark favorite tracks.

    I got a bunch of songs to hear through and like to find my favorites and ban songs I can't stand at all.

    So the idea is that I throw in the collection, the software analyzes the songs and creates a continuous auto-mix and I can just listen to the music, while doing something else and once I hear a good/bad song I click to mark them.


    Idea ?

    There are various apps that can do what you ask: Virtual DJ, Megaseg, Traktor ...

    That being said, none has such an intelligent algorithm to create something artistically acceptable. The result will be fairly random and and not so pleasant. For mixing and (above all) compiling playlist, the human touch is still fundamental

    I find it easier to just click through the tracks on good old win amp i know its painful with 100's - 1000 tracks cos i do it myself but you pick up speed when u get it going , and trust me a lot quicker than the way your thinking a track can be skipped and binned within seconds .

    It depends on personal preferences, I only used Traktor since 2004, cannot speak for others.

    AFAIK any sw will analyze tracks. But for the acceptable mixes we can discuss.
    I (once) tested Traktor in this way, but for each track I had to add start marker, then create a custom playlist sorted by BPM, then switched on the autopilot, but the result wasn't that great after all, just acceptable beatmatch.

    See above - create a custom playlist.

    See above - the result wasn't that great after all.

    Correct.
