MixTape is a simple, beautiful and easy to learn application for making beat matched mixes.
By simply drag dropping the music you already have in iTunes (or from the finder), MixTape adds detected tempo and beats. Tracks are then dragged onto a workspace where they now "snap to grid" along their beats and play in sync. Precisely in sync. The live UI means you can always hear what's underneath the playhead as if it were recorded on magnetic tape and waveform images mean you can see the music in front of you. Finally automated volume and HiLo controls add that all important final polish to your creations.
Mixes can then be exported at a configurable bitrate back into iTunes to play on your Mac, iPod or iPhone; or exported losslessly.
You can even compose your mixes live - simply cue up your first track, start the live stream then continue to use your headphones to mix as usual. The live stream will also emit midi so lighting or VJ rigs can be kept in sync with the music as it is played.
Far simpler than either an audio workstation or a DJ app, MixTape embraces the Mac aesthetic to blend in perfectly with your desktop. Finally a short series of video tutorials emphasise 'show' over 'tell' to show what can be done and how.
Used by DJ's, gym instructors and just ordinary people... we mix our own music and you can too.

Innovative Simplicity & Easy Fun - This is the type of Mac app I was looking for. I wanted to simply make a custom mix of songs. My technical experience is via multi-track recording and editing, not live DJ mixing. Hence, this simple format using grids/tracks is more intuitive for me to use to create an easy mix. I have tested it and the beat matching works great, even for complex tracks! I tried doing something similar in GarageBand and the beat matching was a train wreck, no matter what I tried. GarageBand was designed to beat match loops, not entire imported songs. If you're looking to create a simple track mashup or your own "DJ" mix of songs without recording live, this is a great option. I love the newly updated support for Dark Mode. I hope the developer continues to expand and support this app as there are not a lot of options in this area. Thanks Atomic Droplet!
i paid for this? - i had such high hopes for this app. but as soon as i tried to import some mp3's it crashed and has continued to crash since. i can't even have it open for a minute before it crashes. what a disappointment. can't believe i paid 70 bucks for this....

Doesn't work as expected - I really wanted this to work. I bought it as a Mixmeister replacement since Mixmeister is no longer working on Mac. 1) Crashes all the time. I was already used to this on Mixmeister though. 2) The tempo (bpm) is set from the beginning for the whole mix. If you expect to do only mashups is fine. If you want to create a whole 70 min Mix CD this doesn't work unless you want the same Tempo the whole time. I submitted a request for refund.
DOESN'T WORK - I bought the app and after 30 minutes of usage the app crashed. It won't let me reopen the app and says there is an error. I don't know if this is a problem with my computer even though my computer is less then a year old or a pronlem with the app. either way, I would like a full refund.
could i please get my monery back - ui is not what it said it what be like i give you 5 stars for my money!please
