Amarok mixing mode

Amarok mixing mode

Description:

Probably I'm asking a lot but here is my proposal for Amarok 2.0:

Mixing mode: My proposal consist of some kind of "live DJ platform" built inside Amarok. I mean, the ability to mix automatically, with some rules determining how, the songs that are in the playlist at that very moment and to auto adjust the speed and BPMs at the same time.This would be great in case of playing disco/techno/trance... All this kind of music is thought to be played in a mix so actually the first minute of these songs are in fact created to be overlapped, mixed (just the bases, no voices etc). What I propose is to let Amarok mix by itself the end of a track with the next (as smoothly as possible) in base of data collected from the track (style, BMP, volume...). Would be wonderful this could be controlled in simplified extra panel that could resemble the dj mixing engines.

[I do mean an extra option that could be activated and deactivated; not a default mode]

Sure what I ask for is a lot, I know. What do you think?. Could it be possible at all to implement it?.

 All there

Well, as far as I'm concerned everything you're looking for is already there. Ever tried intelligent playlists? There you can configure which songs should be loaded (Genre, BPM, Artist...) Fading is also supported, at least with xine as a backend.

No, isn't that exactly. Intelligent mode let you "mix" songs provided you specified a long crossfade and the result mix is not done correctly.What I propose goes further. I'm saying that amarok shall decide (around a time you set, imagine 30 sec,) in which point the change between songs would be done. That's saying, let amarok decide where the firsts vocals are, or where the the song starts to intensify and around that point mix both song in order to have a smooth "crossfade/mix" and not a sudden change of song.

it's a cool idea, but how do you imagine this would work? How the heck would software know when to start the fade? It's already very hard to figure out the BPM kind'a properly, so doing this is simply NOT possible yet. It would need a library doing it, and I think a research project funded by companies or a university would be required to write such a library.

I couldn't have imagined It'd be such difficult. I'm not a software developer and I'm just giving an idea as an user. In the good side, isn't a good goal for anyone interested in audio development?.

True, I think it's interesting for some, and they might wanna work on something like this. But though it's not entirely trivial, I don't think they wouldn't think of this themself either. It's a bit of an obvious (but very hard to write) feature, I'd say.

I like the propossament.
I think that he wanted to say: a plugin to convert Amarok in a DJ turntable.

DJ turntable... manual and automatic, to put the BPMs in the "correct rythm".

yes, actually. But it shouldn't be as sophisticated, anyway.

Awsome.
And if it would be impossible, there should still be at least a built-in mixing table.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
