Mix SoundCloud in Cross DJ.
Mixvibes introduces a breakthrough feature on all its platforms: the possibility to stream and mix tracks from SoundCloud. In other words, unlimited music at no extra cost.

Your SoundCloud account, in Cross DJ.
Log in to your SoundCloud account to have your sets, favorites, stream & tracks directly in Cross DJ.

Unlimited Music.
Explore, play and mix all SoundCloud tracks directly within Cross DJ. Get millions of tracks on your device - from your favorite producers to your closest friends.

Fast loading.
Load the track and play it right away. It's almost as fast as locally-hosted tracks. And no need to wait the end of the analysis before kicking it!

Retrieve BPM, Key & Hot cues.
Once a track is analyzed, it's analyzed for good. Cross DJ remembers the track meta-data of the SoundCloud tracks you played previously. (Key analysis only on Mac/PC & iOS versions.)

Share your mix.
Record your mix and share it directly on major DJ platforms. No re-processing needed, it's all built in Cross DJ. (Only for Mac/PC & iOS versions.)

No premium account needed.
You don’t need to have a SoundCloud Pro plan to mix SoundCloud in Cross DJ.

Through Facebook we received this mix. I am happy to share and open many welcome comments and questions

This mix was played and recorded on an iPad using only streamed tracks from SoundCloud. No external audio interface, no controller, no MIDI, nothing but my trusted KRK headphones. No post production or edits / fixes after the recording, uploaded straight from my iPad to SoundCloud.
I've left each glitch and mistake in the mix, so you can hear what is possible to make without prelistening and with streamed files. If you invest a little time into the preparation, setting up CUE points and so on your mix will be a LOT better than mine ;)
This is the moment what I personally been waiting for years and years: DJing with streamed tracks on a mobile device. Freakin' cool! I encourage you to do the same thing, try it and taste the future of DJing. The SoundCloud integration great, and the key/BPM detection works perfectly.
Of course it's only the beginning, this is not the replacement of the CDJs and turntables, yet. But as soon as HD audio streaming will be available streaming will be used in every DJ booth.
- make a SoundCloud playlist with the tunes you wanna play, this mix's playlist is https://soundcloud.com/moarrr/sets/simo ... dj-mix-the
- favourites are also accessible, and you can search for any tune on SoundCloud
- artists and bands, please upload full songs or proper edits, the fade in fade out preview clips are a bloody pain to mix
- once your device analysed the track the info will be there for ever. this is very useful
- be brave! there is no need for pre listening the next track. if you know your music and/or you set up CUE points it's easy to mix since the SYNC works well
- there was a SoundCloud breakdown, or some sort of downtime during I recorded this. the tracks been played, but the search was unavailable.
- Cross DJ doesn't do tracklist for you (like Traktor DJ for example), so you have to do it manually
- obviously since the bitrate of the streaming this is not club ready (yet) but it can be totally okay on small gigs, house parties, radio shows and so on
- there was only one situation when the beat detection was wrong and the SYNC was not working well, I left it in the mix, you can hear it at 31:25, otherwise it was really reliable
- this recorded at the third take, and this was the first time ever I used Cross DJ on iPad, however I played with the Android version many times, and I've played handful of proper gigs with Traktor DJ
- I've used the iPad version, mainly because of the key detection (it's an iOS only feature at the moment). According to my experiences it's doesn't matter which system you are using, the SoundCloud integration in Cross DJ works on Android and iOS too.
So pick up your phone or tablet and start mixing. It's great fun!
Feel free to post your questions as comments, I will answer them as soon as I can.
