Mixable Tracks

You can find Mixable Tracks by right clicking tracks ➡ Use ➡ Find mixable tracks

The Mixable Tracks feature is the successor of Similar Tracks in Rekordcloud. With this feature you can choose any track and Lexicon will give you a list of tracks that are mixable with the chosen track. The better organized your library, the more powerful this feature will become.

Usage

You can open the popup by right clicking any track and choosing Use ➡ Find mixable tracks.

This will present you with a popup with a some basic settings. By default, Lexicon only takes key and BPM into consideration. This can already give you some interesting mixable tracks.

The real power comes when you start using the mix rules where you can choose exactly what the resulting tracks should look like.

Next track

Mixable Tracks can be used during a performance. Once you find the track you want to mix, play it on your favorite DJ app while also selecting it in Lexicon. Click the Use as next track button to generate a new list based on that track. Keep doing that while you're mixing and Lexicon stays with you.

Organization

This feature becomes much more powerful with a well organized library. Adding proper tags, ratings, colors, genres or danceability will help tremendously here.

For best results, try to create a good organizational system. For example, you might use rating to indicate how mellow or aggressive a track is. This way, you can use the rating mix rule and only get a certain type of track. The same goes for other mix rules, like color, genre, danceability, energy and popularity. For most control, you can consider using tags to define every aspect of a track.

Options

By default, Lexicon only shows the basic options that should work for most libraries since BPM and Key is usually known. When you switch to advanced options, you will get far more choice.
