5.1. Razdelki s predvajalnikom

A deck

Predvajalnik z naloženo skladbo

Razdelek s predvajalnikom omogoča kontrolo vsega, kar je povezano z virtualnim gramofonskim :term:`predvajalnik`om. Opise funkciji in dela z njimi bomo razdelili v sekcije.

5.1.1. Prikaz informaciji o skladbi

The track information section of the deck

Razdelek z informacijami o skladbi v predvajalniku

Naslov skladbe

The title of the track that was loaded into a deck is displayed on top. This is the same as the title listed under the Title column heading in the Mixxx library. This information is initially loaded from the tracks metadata.

Izvajalec skladbe

The title of the track is listed below. It is the same as listed under the Artist column heading in the Mixxx library.

BPM (Tempo)

Število na desni zgoraj je efektvno število udarcev na minuto v BPM skladbe. To je prepoznani BPM sklabe, prilagojen na želeno hitrost predvajalanja skladbe. Če ima skladba denimo 100 BPM in jo predvajamo s +5% je efektivni BPM, ki bo prikazan, 105 BPM.

Nasvet

Click directly on the BPM display and tap with the beat to set the BPM to the speed you are tapping. You can also use a keyboard shortcut, go to Uporaba tipkovnice for more information.

Time Elapsed/Remaining

By default it displays the total elapsed time in the track up to the millisecond. Clicking on the display switches to the Time Remaining view, which indicates how much time is left before the track reaches the end. You can change the default in Preferences ‣ Interface ‣ Position Display.

5.1.2. Prikaz valovne oblike

The deck waveform summary and waveform overview

The waveform summary and waveform overview of the deck

Razdelek s prikazom valovne oblike v predvajalniku, omogoča vizualizacijo sprememb zvoka, ki se dodaja skozi skladbo. V bistvu omogoča, da lahko svojo glasbo tako rekoč “vidite”.

Povzetek valovne oblike

The big waveform summary shows the waveform envelope of the track near the current playback position and is updated in realtime. The mouse can be used on the waveform to pause, scratch, spin-back or throw the tracks. Right-clicking on the waveforms allows you to drag with the mouse to make temporary pitch adjustments.

Nasvet

You can select from different types of displays for the waveform, which differ primarily in the level of detail shown in the waveform, in Preferences ‣ Interface ‣ Waveform Display ‣ Display type.

Pregled valovne oblike

The smaller, zoomed-out version of the waveform shows the various markers within the track as well as the waveform envelope of the entire track. This is useful because they allow DJs to see breakdowns far in advance. Clicking somewhere on the waveform allows you to jump to an arbitrary position in the track.

Virtualni gramofon

Črta virtualnega gramofona se vrti, ko se skladba premika, podobno kot oznaka pozicije na ploščah za drgnjenje. Na virtualnem gramofonu lahko z miško zaustavite, drgnete, zavrtite nazaj ali vržete skladbo - tako kot na pravih ploščah. Če izvajate kotaleče se zanke ali desno kliknete na ploščo med predvajanjem, se bo pojavila “duh” oznaka, ki označuje mesto, kjer se bo predvajanje nadaljevalo. Virtualni gramofon je v osnovi skrit in ga je potrebno vključiti v Mreža gumbov z opcijami predvajalnika.

Če je vključeno gramofonsko upravljanje, lahko prikazuje tudi kakovost signala časovno kodirane plošče. Aktivirajte opcijo v Nastavitve ‣ Gramofonsko upravljanje ‣ Na preobleki prikaži kakovost signala.

Povečava prikaza valovne oblike

Using the mouse-wheel everywhere in the waveform summary will zoom the waveform in or out. You can choose whether or not to synchronize the zoom level between the decks in Preferences ‣ Interface ‣ Waveform Display ‣ Synchronize.

Oznake na prikazu valovne oblike

Med miskanjem se lahko na prikazu valovne oblike pojavijo dodatne oznake:

  • Position marker: The static vertical line in the center of the waveform summary indicates the playback point of the deck.

  • Ritmična oznaka: Bele črte na prikazu valovne oblike prikazujejo lokacije dob v zvoku, ki jih imenujemo tudi ritmična mreža.

  • Oznaka cue iztočnice: Prikazuje pozicijo cue iztočnice.

  • Oznaka hotcue iztočnice: Prikazuje pozicijo in številko hotcue iztočnice, če je ta določena.

  • Oznaki za vhod in izhod iz zanke: Prikazuje začetek in konec zanke.

  • Prekrivalo zanke: Je grafični prikaz med začetkom in koncem zanke in spremeni barvo glede na to ali je zanka aktivna ali ne.

  • Obvestilo o koncu skladbe: Če prikaz valovne oblike utripa rdeče, je ostalo le še 30 sekund do konca skladbe.

Poglej Tudi

To learn how to get most out of the waveforms while mixing, go to the chapter Waveform displays.

Opozorilo

If you have a slower computer and notice performance issues with Mixxx, try to lower the frame rate or change the level of detail shown in the waveform in in Preferences ‣ Interface ‣ Waveform Display.

5.1.3. Mreža gumbov z opcijami predvajalnika

The Options Button Grid of the deck

Mreža gumbov z opcijami predvajalnika

The six buttons at the bottom right below the waveform allow you to configure the deck. Starting from the top-left and moving counterclockwise the buttons are as follows:

Prikaži ali skrij virtualni garmofon

Preklaplja vidnost virtualnega gramofona v Prikaz valovne oblike.

Preklopi ponavljanje

Ko je ponavljanje vključeno, se bo po koncu skladbe predvajanje začelo ponovno od začetka.

Izvrzi skladbo

Klik na ta gumb bo izvrgel skladbo iz predvajalnika. Namesto tega je mogoče uporabiti bližnjico na tipkovnici. Pojdtie na poglavje Uporaba tipkovnice za več informacij.

Gumb za prilagajanje ritmične mreže

Clicking this button adjusts the track beat-grid so that the current position is marked as a beat. This is useful if Mixxx was able to accurately detect the track’s BPM but failed to align the beat markers on the beats. For more information, go to the chapter BPM and Beat Detection.

Vklop/izklop kvantizacije

Če je kvantizacija vklopljena, bodo vse cue in hotcue iztočnice, zanke in ritmične zanke samodejno kvantizirane, tako da se bodo začele na dobi.

Zakleni/odkleni tonaliteto

Zaklep tonalitete zaklene višino skladbe, tako da spreminjanje njene hitrosti preko drsnika ne vpliva na višino. To je uporabno, kadar želite pospešiti ali upočasniti skladbo in bi se radi izognili “opičjemu” efektu, ki ga ima pospeševanje na vokale.

5.1.4. Gramofonsko upravljanje in kontrola cue iztočnic

The Vinyl Control Mode and Cueing controls of a deck

Način upravljanja z gramofonom in kontrola izotčnic v predvajalniku

Kontrole nad prikazom valovne oblike se nanašajo na gramofonsko upravljanje in so skrite v privzetem Mixxx user interface. Kliknite VINYL section expansion button v razdelku z miskerjem ali pa uproabite specifične Bližnjice za aplikacije za prikaz ali skrivanje tega razdelka.

Gumbi Abs/Rel/Const

  • Absolutni način: Pozicija sladbe sovpada s pozicijo igle in hitrostjo.

  • Relativni način:- hitrost skladbe je enaka hitrosti igle, ne glede na pozicijo igle.

  • Konstantni način: hitrost skladbe je enaka zadnji poznani enakomerni hitrosti, ne glede na stanje igle.

Gumb Off/One/Hot

Ta gumb določa, kako bodo obravnavane cue iztočnice v relativnem načinu delovanja gramofonskega upravljanja:

  • Off: Cue iztočnice se ignorirajo.

  • One Cue: Če je igla spuščena za cue izotčnico, se bo skladba prevrtela do te izotčnice.

  • Hot Cue: The track will seek to nearest previous hotcue point.

Za več informaciji o rabi gramofonskega upravljanja, glej Vinyl Control.

5.1.5. Kontrole za sinhronizacijo in določanje hitrosti

The rate control section of the deck

Nadzor hitrosti

Kontrole za določanje hitrosti omogočajo spreminjanje stopnje hitrosti predvajanja skladb. To je zelo uporabno za usklajevanje ritma dveh skladb v misku. To stopnjo lahko nadzorujete tudi s pomočjo tipkovnice. Za več informaciji glej Uporaba tipkovnice.

SYNC gumb

  • Levi klik: Spremeni hitrost skladbe, tako da se BPM in faza skladbe ujemata s tistima iz drugega predvajalnika.

  • Right-Click: Only changes the rate of the track to match the other deck but does not adjusts the phase.

Spremenjeno v verziji 1.11: Changed Sync mode (Ghetto Sync™)

Decks and samplers now pick which sync target to sync to on the fly. Decks can’t sync to samplers and samplers can only sync to decks. The sync target is:

  • The first (in numerical order) deck that is playing (rate > 0) a track that has a detected beatgrid.

  • The first (in numerical order) deck that has a track loaded with a detected beatgrid (could be stopped).

    So basically, if you sync a sampler and both deck 1 and deck 2 are playing a track with a beatgrid then deck 1 will win since numerically it is first. This will change again in the future once Mixxx gets a proper master sync feature.

Višina/hitrost drsnik

Drsnik omogoča spreminjanje hitrosti skladbe. Privzeti so koraki po 10% glede na originalno hitrost skladbe. Hitrost se povečuje s premikanjem drsnika navzgor, kar je nasprotno od tega, kar najdemo pri DJ gramofonih in CDJ enotah. Desni klik bo povrnil tempo na orignialno vrednost.

Prikaz višine in hitrosti

Tu se prikazuje stopnja pohitritve ali upočasnitve skladbe. Če je drsnik Višina/hitrost na sredini, prikazuje +0.0%, kar pomeni, da ni sprememb v hitrosti.

Višina/hitrost gumbi

Gumba plus in minus povečata ali zmanjšata tempo v korakih, kot se predvaja skladba, podobno kot da bi drsnik počasi premikali. Z desnim klikom so ti premiki še bolj fini.

Začasna spremeba višine/hitrosti (sunek)

Pushing the the left and right arrow buttons is like nudging the metal edge of a turntable, or the outer edge of a CD player. It will give the track a push or pull forwards or backwards. If the buttons are released the previous tempo is restored. The buttons can act as either a fixed pitch bend or a ramping pitch bend.

Poglej Tudi

To customize the amount by which the buttons alter the pitch of the track, the slider range as well as the direction, go to Preferences ‣ Interface.

Nasvet

Če se tempo skladbe spremeni, boste opazili, da se ton spremeni glede na uporabljeno hitrost (hitrejše predvajanje daje opičij zvok). Lahko vklopite Keylock, da obdržite konstanten ton.

5.1.6. Kontrole predvajanja

The transport controls of the deck

Transportne kontrole predvajalnika

Gumb za hitro previjanje nazaj

Dokler je ta gumb pritisnjen, se skldaba hitro predvaja nazaj. Desni klik na gumb bo postavil pozicijo na začetek skladbe.

Gumb za hitro previjanje naprej

Dokler je ta gumb pritisnjen, se skldaba hitro predvaja naprej. Desni klik na gumb bo postavil pozicijo na konec skladbe.

Gumb vzvratno

As the name suggests, this button plays a track backwards.

5.1.7. Kontrola zank

The beatloop and looping controls of the deck

Kontrole predvajalnika za ritmične zanke in zanke

V tem razdelku Mixxx vmesnika lahko kontrolirate (ritmične) zanke in določite točke zank v skladbi.

Gumbi ritmičnih zank

  • Instantna zanka: Oštevilčeni gumbi predstavljajo različno število dob . S klikom na katerega od teh gumbov se ustvari zanka iz določenega števila dob, ki se začne za taktom, ki sledi trenutni poziciji predvajanja. Kadar je zanka postavljena je ta prikazana na prikazu valovne oblike.

  • Loop roll:

    Novo v verziji 1.11.

    Right-click on any of the numbered loop buttons to temporarily setup a rolling loop over the defined number of beats. Playback will resume where the track would have been if it had not entered the loop.

  • Podvoji zanko: Klik na gumb plus bo podvojil dolžino trenutne zanke do največ 64 taktov. Dolžina prikaza zanke v prikazovalniku valovne oblike se bo temu primerno podaljšala.

  • Razpolovi zanko: Klik na gumb minus bo razpolovil dolžino trenutne zanke do 1/32 takta. Dolžina prikaza zanke v prikazovalniku valovne oblike se bo temu primerno skrajšala.

Gumbi za zanke

  • Loop-In: This button allow you to manually set the start point of a loop. A loop-in marker is placed on the waveform indicating the position. If clicked when a loop was already set, it moves the start point of a loop to a new position.

  • Loop-Out: This button allow you to manually set the end point of a loop. A loop-out marker is placed on the waveform indicating the position. If clicked when a loop was already set, it moves the end point of a loop to a new position.

  • Zanka: Označen tudi kot Ponovi zanko. Ta gumb določa ali je zanka aktivna ali ne. To deluje tako za ročno določene zanke, kot tudi za avtomatske, ki jih postavijo gumbi za ustvarjanje ritmičnih zank. Prikaz zanke v prikazovalniku valovne oblike, bo glede na stanje zanke spremenil barvo.

Nasvet

Če predvajate znotraj zanke in bi radi premaknili izhodno točko zanke naprej od trenutne pozicije v skladbi, pritisnite najprej gumb „Zanka“ in ko predvajanje doseže željeno pozicijo, pritisnite gumb „Izhod zanke“.

Poglej Tudi

Če je vključen način Kvantizacija, bodo zanke samodejno skakale na najbližjo dobo. Ta način v izhodišču ni vključenn in se vključi s klikom na Vklop/izklop kvantizacije.

Tako kot z zankami (glej zgoraj), bodo tudi hotcue iztočnice samodejno skočile na najbljižjo dobo, če je vklopljen način knvantizacija Ta način v izhodišču ni vključenn in se vključi s klikom na Vklop/izklop kvantizacije.

5.2. The Mixer Section

The mixer section

The mixer section

The mixer section of the Mixxx user interface allows you to control how the different decks and samplers are mixed together.

5.2.1. Channel Faders and VU Meters

VU meters

In the center of the mixer section are 4 VU meters. The two outer-most VU meters are for each deck, while the 2 inner-most VU meters are the left and right VU meters for the master output.

The light at the top of the VU meter indicates when the audio in the selected channel is clipping. If this light goes on, reduce the gain or EQs for this deck to eliminate distortion.

Line faders

The two large faders on either side of the VU meters are the deck volume faders, also known as Channel- or Line-faders. Adjusting these controls the volume of each deck.

Nasvet

Some DJ’s prefer to use the line faders over the crossfader for fading between tracks. Try it, you may like it.

5.2.2. Section Expansion Buttons

The section expansion buttons

The section expansion buttons

Above the VU meters in the mixer are the optional section expansion buttons.

If you click on either MIC, SAMPLER, or VINYL then you will enable control sections for interacting with:

5.2.3. Headphone and Master Mix Controls

The headphone and master mix knobs

The headphone and master mix knobs

Head-Mix Knob

Allows you to customize how much of the master output you hear in your headphones. It works like a crossfader between the stereo Master and stereo Cueing signal. If the knob is set to the left, you only hear the cueing signal which can be useful for prelistening tracks.

Opomba

Don’t forget to activate the PFL button on the deck you want to listen to in your headphones.

Head volume Knob

This button adjusts your headphone volume. You can adjust the volume of a single deck’s signal you are listening to in the headphones with the Gain knob.

Balance Knob

This knob allows you to adjust the balance (left/right orientation) of the master output.

Volume Knob

The Volume Knob controls the overall volume of of the master output. Adjust this knob so that the Master VU meters are just at the peak.

Nasvet

If the Peak indicator on top of the Master VU meter flashes, the master output signal is clipping (too loud). Lower the volume with using the volume knob.

5.2.4. PFL/Headphone Button

The headphone buttons of both decks in the mixer

The headphone buttons of both decks in the mixer

The headphone button is also known as the pre-fader listen or PFL button. Pressing this button allows you to listen and synchronize the track you will play next in your headphones before your audience hears the track (headphone cueing). You can select more than one PFL button simultaneously.

Poglej Tudi

Headphone cueing is only available if you have configured a Headphone Output in Preferences ‣ Sound Hardware.

5.2.5. Equalizers and Gain Knobs

The EQ Controls of a deck in the mixer

EQ Controls

Novo v verziji 1.11: Latch mode for Kill Switches

Gain Knob

Above these knobs, the gain knob allows you to adjust the gain of the deck. In general, you should adjust this knob so that at full-volume the deck’s audio is just at the peak of the center VU meters. This is so you can achieve the widest dynamic range for your track.

EQ Knobs

The low, mid, and high knobs allow you to change the filters of the audio. This allows you to selectively reduce or boost certain frequency ranges of the audio.

Kill Switches

The small boxes next to each EQ knob are called kills. Hold these buttons to fully remove that frequency range. Short click on the buttons for latching. When in Latch mode, click again to restore the frequency range. If the Kill switches do not work as expected, check the high/low shelf EQ settings in the preferences.

Nasvet

To return to the beginning of the track, right-click on the deck’s Fast-Rewind Button.

5.2.8. Cue Button

If the button is pressed, the play position jumps to an existing Cue point on the track or sets a new one, depending on whether a track is playing or not. If you have not set any custom cues yet, the default point is at the track’s beginning.

5.2.8.1. Setting Cue points

  • While playing: The Cue point is set via Play/Pause Button. A right-click on the button places a Cue point at the current play position on the track, and a Cue marker appears on the waveforms.

  • While stopped: Clicking on the Cue button places a Cue point at the current play position on the track, and a Cue marker appears on the waveforms. The existing cue point will be replaced.

Every track has a Cue point, by default on its beginning. Unlike with Hotcues, you can’t delete, but only move Cue points.

5.2.8.2. Using Cue Modes

You can switch between the CUE modes in Preferences ‣ Interface.

CDJ cue mode (default)

  • While playing: Tapping the Cue button causes the track to instantly jump to the location of the cue point where it stops the playback.

  • While stopped: Holding down the Cue button jumps to the cue point and starts playback as long as the button is pressed. If the button is released, the play position marker jumps to the cue point and the playback is paused. Clicking the Play button while the Cue button is down continues the playback.

Simple mode

  • While playing: Similar to the Hotcues, clicking the Cue button jumps to the cue point and continues playback.

  • While stopped: No action is performed.
