Colored, 3-band Waveforms
Don't miss a beat. These waveforms make every kick, snare, and thumping beat stand out.
Brand New Beat Detector
With a brand new beat detection system based on the latest academic research at Queen Mary University, Mixxx's beat detection is now deadly accurate. This means your loops, hotcues, and beatsyncing will be spot-on.
HID and Bulk Controller Support
Mixxx now supports non-MIDI devices using its powerful scripting system.
Mixxx 1.11.0 comes with HID presets for the following devices:
Traktor Kontrol F1
Hercules DJ Console Mk1
Hercules DJ Console Mk2
Hercules DJ Control MP3 e2 (driver no longer necessary on Linux)
Pioneer CDJ 850/900/2000
Whether you need to report your setlists to ASCAP or just remember the tracks you played last night, the new Session History feature keeps track of every tune you drop so that you don't have to.
This stunning new effect works just like a beatloop except when you release the button the deck jumps to where it would have been if you hadn't started the loop. Try it out by right-clicking on a beat-loop button.
A highly-requested feature, the new preview deck allows you to preview tracks in your headphones without having to load them into a main deck. Just click preview on any track in the library and it will start to play in your headphones.
The library search box received some much-needed love. Try out these example queries:
All tracks between 100 and 120BPM with rating greater than 4.
All tracks with "Aphex Twin" in the artist column.
All Electro tracks with BPM greater than 115.
For full details, see the Mixxx manual.
Now you can customize the crossfade period, re-queue tracks instead of removing, and more.
Point-and-Click MIDI Mapping
Getting your controller mapped is now easier than ever. Just click on the button or knob you want to map in Mixxx and then wiggle the control on your MIDI controller to wire it up.
New Sample Grid skin
With 16 sample decks, this skin is perfect for radio DJs and advanced beat-jugglers alike.
Skins now show the time so you can keep your eye on the clock while in full-screen.
Sample Deck Improvements

When there is room skins now include more sample decks.
