Cue List, Side List, Autoplay List. Whatever you call it..

The lack of a specific cue list for automix is a bit of a bummer and would be a nice addition to really round out the software. I have a lot of songs and a lot of playlsits. It would be nice to be able to drop songs on some sort of short list to be able to either automix them or just organize them and have them disappear when I load them to a deck.

You can do this.
Create a playlist 'autoplay' or whatever.
Use this for automix feature.
Go to any playlist click at right (dotted menu) select add to playlist. Select your autoplay playlist.

To change order go to autoplay list, click dotted menu at right top and select Edit.

Automatic remove isn't present however you can do this by using dotted menu at right of each track.

It's not that the feature (autoplay) isn't there. It's that it suffers from poor implementation for the mobile DJ. I purchased both the tablet version of Cross and the PC version to test out for my company as I want to move away from VDJ7. It's seems as tho both programs suffer the same issue of poor implementation of autoplay.

The PC version has had a forum thread going for years asking to improve autoplay and make it more usable for the mobile DJ. I'm guessing since this request hasn't been addressed in years it is not a priority for developers. So far I love the software but a good implementation of autoplay is make or break for my company. Not because we like to slack at DJing. But because we do background music, break music for bands and we interact on the dance floor. So we tend to turn automix on and off multiple times throughout the night. I don't want to have to worry about manually deleting songs off a list. Or turning automix on and having it play a song I've already played because I forgot to delete it.

As for now it looks like I'll move on and test out some other alternatives but I'll probably check back in a year or so to see if things get improved upon.
