    This always seems to work when digital DJ'ing too.

    Oh fuck key detection software. It's all pants. Just listen to your damn music. Does it sound good together? Good. Play it then.

    Fixed that for you.

    There's also a really, really interesting number group where you take it as axiomatic that 1+1 = 0.

    All of which is just to say: many of the things you think are natural laws, aren't. This applies even more strongly here, where the best advice is (and always will be) "trust your ears".

    I think I'm agreeing with you, btw.

    I tried using key detection software and it skull effed all my tracks meta data....probably user error, but it was enough to discourage future use! Now, I just use my ears.

    My first attempt at a harmonic mix is up on my mix cloud: mixcloud.com/knightsoftheround

    harmonic mixing is good for doing long blends.... u sould be able to tell if something is going good or not if it doesnt i normally cut it or dont play it... its more of a guide line to mixing i would say



    i read up on that mixed in key and its the best programme for it..but out of all the songs that got tested with it.. it was only 66% accurate waste of money imho
