After downloading Mixxx from our Website, you need to install it on your computer.

Windows

Double-click the Mixxx installation file and go through the installation wizard.

macOS

Double-click the Mixxx .dmg file and drag the Mixxx icon to your Applications folder.

GNU/Linux

No steps are necessary after you follow the instructions on the download page.

2.2. Upgrading Mixxx

You may safely install Mixxx on top of any previous version. You don’t need to uninstall the old version.

Your settings and library will not be removed or reset, but they may be upgraded when you launch the new version of Mixxx. Note that we do not guarantee that new configurations will work on older versions of Mixxx, therefore you may want to make a backup of your existing settings just in case.

Windows

Mixxx settings are in %LOCALAPPDATA%\Mixxx, which is usually something like c:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Mixxx. If you have trouble finding this folder, see these instructions.

macOS

Mixxx settings are in /Users/<username>/Library/Application\ Support/Mixxx

GNU/Linux

Mixxx settings are in /home/<username>/.mixxx

Copy this directory to a backup drive or somewhere else on your system to make a backup of your settings.

See Launching Mixxx from the Command Line for an overview of Mixxx’s command line options.

2.4. Uvoz zvočnih datotek

Mixxx 1st run - Choose music library directory dialog

Mixxx running on Windows 10 - Choose music library directory dialog

Ko je Mixxx prvič zagnan, vpraša za lokacijo direktorija, kjer je shranjena vaša glasba. V odnovi za dialog kaže na lokacijo, kjer so glasbene datoteke ponavadi shranjene, lahko pa izberete drugo lokacijo na vašem računalniku.

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.

Če želite osvežiti vašo knjižnico (ker ste denimo dodali ali premaknili kakšne datoteke), lahko to storite z izbiro opcije Knjižnica ‣ Preglej knjižnico iz menuja. Če želite knjižnico osvežiti ob vsakem zagonu, izberite Nastavitve ‣ Knjižnica ‣ Preglej ob zagonu.

Opozorilo

V Windows 7 in 8 dialog za uvoz kaže na Windows glasbeno knjižnico, ki je posebna mapa. Teh virtualnih imenikov ne morete uporabljati. Namesto tega uporabite navadno mapo, ponavadi je to “My Music“, kot je prikazano na zgornji sliki.

2.5. Analizira vašo knjižnico

Library - Icon Analyze Mixxx automatically analyzes tracks the first time you load them in a deck. This allows you to run beatgrid, key, and ReplayGain detection on tracks in advance. It also prepares the waveform overviews, detects file corruption, and calculates the BPM values.

For more information, go to Prepoznavanje beata.

Why you should analyze your audio files

If the tracks have never been played with Mixxx before, the library columns BPM, Duration and Key will be empty or unreliable (because the values are just read from the file’s tags if present and might be wrong). Pre-generating beatgrids gives you the chance to double-check the beat markers to make sure they are correct. Errors in beatgrids can cause difficulty when syncing tracks. Furthermore, track analysis takes considerable CPU power and might cause skips in the audio — things you surely don’t need while performing.

How to analyze your audio files

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.

  • To analyze a few specific tracks, hold down the Ctrl button, and select the tracks that you want to analyze or you can shift-select a range of tracks. Once they’ve been highlighted, click the Analyze button on the top right of the library section.

  • To analyze the newly added tracks, toggle the New label and then click Analyze.

  • To analyze the entire library, toggle the All label and then click Analyze.

  • The New and All toggle buttons are located at the top left of the analysis pane - just above the Preview and Cover Art column titles of the library.

While analyzing, the progress in percentage and total queue length are shown.

2.6. Nastavitve vhodnih in izhodnih naprav

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 input and output options. For Mixxx to perform the best it can on your system, configure the other Strojna oprema za zvok preferences in addition to the inputs and outputs.
