2. Getting Started

2.1. Abrindo o Mixx

logo Once you’ve installed Mixxx, start by opening Mixxx and importing your music to the Mixxx library.

Windows

Clique duas vezes no ícone do Mixxx na Área de Trabalho. Alternativamente, navegue pelo seu menu Iniciar e clique no ícone do Mixxx, ou procue por Mixxx.exe.

Mac OSX

Double-click the Mixxx icon in the Applications folder. Alternatively, drag the Mixxx icon to the dock and double-click it there or search for mixxx in Spotlight.

GNU/Linux

Click the Mixxx icon in the applications menu or launcher of your desktop environment or perform a search for mixxx. Alternatively type mixxx into the terminal, then hit Return. If your audio interface is not accessible from Mixxx because it is used by other applications via PulseAudio, you may close and restart Mixxx using pasuspender mixxx. See Command line options for an overview of Mixxx’s command line options.

2.2. Importando seus arquivos de áudio

Mixxx 1st run - Choose music library directory dialog

Mixxx running on Windows 10 - Choose music library directory dialog

A primeira vez que você rodar o Mixxx, será questionado para selecionar uma pasta onde suas músicas estão guardadas. Por padrão, a caixa de diálogo aponta para onde normalmente as músicas ficam, mas você pode selecionar qualquer outra localização no seu computador.

Click Select Folder and Mixxx will scan your music library. Depending on the size of your library this could take some time. All the supported music files Mixxx detects will be listed in the Tracks - View and edit your whole collection.

Se você quer atualizar a sua biblioteca (por exemplo porque você adicionou ou moveu arquivos), você pode fazer isso com o menu Biblioteca ‣ Reexaminar Biblioteca. Se você quiser reexaminar em toda a inicialização, selecione menuselection:Preferências –> Biblioteca –> Reexaminar na Inicialização.

Aviso

No Windows 7 e 8 a caixa de diálogo de importação vai apontar para a sua Bilbioteca do Windows de “Música“, uma pasta de uso especial virtual. Você não pode usar estas pastas virtuais. Selecione uma pasta normal, usualmente “Minhas Músicas“, como mostrado acima.

2.3. Analise sua biblioteca

Library - Icon Analyze Mixxx automatically analyzes tracks the first time you load them in a deck, nevertheless it is recommended that you analyze them before playing live to ensure the beatgrids are correct. Furthermore, track analysis takes considerable CPU power and might cause skips in the audio — things you surely don’t need while performing.

Once you have imported your music library, press OK on the Preferences window. Go to the Analyze view on the left side panel of the library. This allows you to run beatgrid, key, and ReplayGain detection on tracks in advance. While analyzing, the progress in percentage and total queue length are shown.

2.4. Configuring sound input and output

Before you can start using Mixxx, you need to configure Mixxx to use your sound hardware in Preferences ‣ Sound Hardware. You do not need to configure all inputs and outputs.

The DJ Hardware chapter explains different types of DJ hardware and how to set them up with the the input and output options. For Mixxx to perform the best it can on your system, configure the other Sound Hardware preferences in addition to the inputs and outputs.

Internal mixing:

Use these outputs if you are not using an external hardware mixer. If you are using a controller with a built-in audio interface, use these outputs.

  • Master: all decks, samplers, microphones, and auxiliary inputs mixed together. This output is sent to the speakers for the audience.

  • Headphones: all decks, samplers, microphones, and auxiliary inputs assigned to pre-fader listening

  • Booth: same as Master output, but has a separate gain control

External mixing:

  • Decks 1-4: the individual unmixed decks to send to an external mixer

  • Bus Left/Center/Right: all decks, samplers, and auxiliary inputs assigned to each side of Mixxx’s crossfader

2.4.2. Input Options

Internal mixing:

Use these inputs if you are not using an external hardware mixer. If you are using a controller with a built in audio interface, use these inputs.

  • Microphone 1-4: live microphone or musical instrument inputs

  • Auxiliary 1-4: other sound sources

External mixing:

  • Record/Broadcast: When this is configured, Mixxx will record and broadcast from this audio interface input instead of the internal master mix. If you have a microphone plugged into the mixer, do not configure the Microphone 1-4 inputs.

Either internal or external mixing:

  • Vinyl Control 1-4: timecode input from turntables or CDJs for manipulating decks 1-4
