Updated: October 20, 2023
Have you been looking for an online music mixer that also works with Spotify? Mixonset is the best DJ app available on iOS that makes it simple for anyone to make a smooth music mix. Here’s a step by step guide with in-app images to quickly show you how this music mixer app works.
Mixonset is the best DJ app to mix your favorite playlists into a seamless party mix – just like a pro DJ. It’s an online mobile app that helps you mix songs automatically. Here’s a few Mixonset tips to help you hack your party, so that you can become the heart and soul of any event.
Let’s set the scene: there’s a party coming up and your friends have asked you to be in charge of the AUX cord. Even if you have the world’s best music taste, it’s going to be a problem if you’re armed with nothing more than an iPhone and a few Spotify playlists. Above all, nobody wants to be at a party where the music sucks.
1. The Mixonset App is Free
First things first, install the Mixonset Spotify mixer app on your iOS device completely for free. The Mixonset app is publicly available on the iOS App Store and it is compatible with Spotify Premium, TIDAL, and your personal iTunes MP3 library. Since the Mixonset online music mixer is free, anyone can instantly sync their iPhone music libraries with Mixonset for any last-minute parties you might have.
Apart from the Mixonset Basic version which is completely free, Mixonset also offers a Mixonset Pro version with additional mixing features and discovery options. Furthermore, all Mixonset users get a free 1 month trial to fall in love with the Mixonset Pro experience.
2. Syncs to Your Favorite Music
This step is kind of underrated. Nevertheless, it’s important to have your music on hand whenever you want it DJ mixed. After all, what’s the point of rebuilding a whole new playlist just to mix on a separate app? At Mixonset, we help you do things as simply and easily as possible while making the loudest buzz.
When you log into Mixonset through your Spotify Premium subscription, you can immediately access your saved Spotify playlists. It’s this seamless user experience that lets you mix your Spotify library as easily as possible. Besides Spotify, you can also seamlessly sync your Mixonset library with a premium TIDAL subscription (HiFi or Premium), SoundCloud Free account, Apple Music, or iTunes.
Furthermore, Mixonset also has your favorite songs, artists, and albums on hold so that you can easily mix your favorite playlists with your smart DJ mixer at a moment’s notice. It’s magic in music mixing form!
3. Smart Mix Your Playlist
You’ll see all your tracks once you’ve clicked into the playlist. From here, it’s just a matter of pressing the bright red Smart Mix button – it’ll do all the tough work. In short, Smart Mix is a combination of the simplicity of shuffle, and the intelligence of automix.
Your AI DJ mixer will analyze your playlist and transform it into a music mix. Once the purple loading bar is completed, it’s going to generate a purple dot as a transition point, and you’ll have a seamless mix.
Do you want to mix with a DJ transition at a particular part of the track? It’s easier than counting 1, 2, 3 with Mixonset. Just drag the purple mixing dot to wherever you want the mix to happen.
4. Boost Playlists with New Tracks
Don’t have enough tracks in your playlist for a party? Easy. Just reset discovery on the queue page and you can simply boost your playlist with new tracks up to 300% discovery. That means that if you have 50 songs already, you can fill the gaps of your queue with another 150 new songs at the right moments of your mix.
You can use the discovery feature before you Smart Mix. As a matter of fact, the discovery feature is nestled in the playlist page amongst all the unique music filters. Alternatively, you could also discover new tracks within the queue page simultaneously while your favorite songs are being mixed. This way, you’ll get the chance to enrich your queue on the go even when you don’t have enough tracks to listen to.
Another great reason to use discovery is for the DJ crate digging experience. You can replicate it by just finding the vibe of tracks you already love. Like so many other great Mixonset features, Fill the Gaps is made as intuitive as possible so that you can be the DJ without needing to do the hard work.
5. Pro Tip: Curate Your Mix with Filters
You might have some songs that are less suited to a house party nestled somewhere randomly within one of your fun playlists. It’s probably for the best that your “lo-fi” tracks don’t get played when everyone is getting hyped up. That’s why you can use music filters to curate your queue instantly to create a musical atmosphere that is energetic and fun. To this end, you can use Mixonset’s Vibe Filter to filter out the tracks that aren’t “Intense” or “Wild”.
Equally important in the smart DJ’s arsenal is the BPM Filter. In brief, you can use it to play songs that are of a similar tempo, therefore creating a more seamless and smooth music mix that people can dance to. Pro Tip: use the BPM filter if you have a specific genre in mind, since genres generally have different ranges for beats per minute! According to Ableton, this is a BPM rule of thumb:
- Dub: 60-90 bpm
- Hip-hop: 60-100 bpm
- House: 115-130 bpm
- Techno/trance: 120-140 bpm
- Dubstep: 135-145 bpm
- Drum and bass: 160-180 bpm
Mixonset’s automatic song mixer is already known by lots of wedding planners, bar owners and party hosts all looking to throw the perfect party with incredible music mixes. Now that you know about it, it’s your turn to show off your DJ mixing skills. The next time you find yourself with nothing more than a sick playlist, an iPhone, and some speakers – you know how to take over the AUX cord and set the tone for any musical moment!
