The Motion Engine is the musical core of Motionmixes. It guarantees an organic musical flow, stunning transitions, and it always creates music that sounds as if your audio design is being played live to match your content.

Is fast data transfer more than just a catchphrase for you? To guarantee a professional workflow in complex broadcast setups, Motionmixes includes a network feature, which allows you to connect as many clients (computers) as you want. Basically, every modification gets automatically transferred to the other clients. The installation is simple and quick.

DATA MANAGEMENT

 

It is easy to import your own audio via drag and drop to use every feature of Motionmixes. Motionmixes supports WAV and AIFF files. MP3s are converted during the import and stored as WAV.

AUDIO IMPORT

With the Motionmixes Recorder you have the ability to record your arrangements in realtime and save them.  Everything you play through Motionmixes can be recorded and then be easily imported as a new button. In addition, you can define a second audio input to record: for example your voice, together with the played music.

RECORD TO BUTTON

Motionmixes is controlled by a unique and intuitive Button User Interface. The shape of a button defines the character of the music it contains: Intro, loop, drop and outro. You will be surprised at how easy and comfortable it is to create musical structure and harness the full potential of music.
