This system is designed surely keeping the audiophile in mind. The presence of iPad and iPhone docks and also the ability to mix tracks proves this fact. This audio system is mainly intended for the club going younger generation .It allows bringing the same ambience to your car.
In a conventional audio system each track is played individually. There will be pause in between two simultaneous tracks. This won’t create much of a party atmosphere. The MIXTRAX system combines two music tracks by providing beautiful transitions and effects. This enables you to play your entire play list as a smooth continuous audio track. The effect will be the same as that the one you get from a club where a DJ is playing music. So throw in a couple of neon lights and disco balls and you got yourself a club on wheels.
How the system does this is that while a music source is identified, its entire tracks are analyzed by the inbuilt software. Various musical features like tempo as well as the beats per minute are sampled and identified. This allows the system to group the tracks according to the type of music. That is all the songs that comes under the Beat category will be tagged in a separate play list and so on. When the person chooses to play a certain track the software analyzes the best transition point in a song and switches to another track and so on. This constant blending and mixing of the tracks gives a true club like effect.
Different types of mix styles can be selected by the user like active, simple and standard .This would determine the intensity of transitions used and mixes required. If the user wants the mixed track can be moved to a USB drive or to a memory card for later use.
The new model incorporating the MIXTRAX technology will be launched in auto expo 2012 .There is no much information about the price as of now.
