Unless you've buried your head in the sand over the last couple of years, I think you'll be familiar with the term artificial intelligence - or AI for short.

This emerging field is now at the forefront of technology and is arguably the most important development since the internet with generative AI apps like ChatGPT making countless headlines/

Now, as music lovers, humble bedroom producers, and professional DJs, AI DJ software is becoming more powerful, and essential to understand. 

In this article, I'm going to discuss the benefits of using AI in DJing and other creative pursuits, share some of the best AI tools for mixing music, and help you get started with DJ.Studio - the latest cutting-edge AI DJ software. 

Welcome to the future!

AI For DJs - An Overview#

Before getting into this article, you should also read my piece on AI DJ Software. In there, I give a more broad overview of what AI is and how it works, as well as addressing fears that AI will threaten or replace DJs. 

In short, AI is a type of computer system aimed to imitate the way a human brain can input, process, manipulate, and output data. 

And no, AI isn't a danger to DJs, it's a new tool that can boost creativity. In the same way that a hammer can be a dangerous weapon, it's mostly been used for good. 

What Is AI DJ Mixer Software? What Can It Do?#

AI DJ Mixer software is a type of application that uses some kind of artificial intelligence to assist with DJ mixing or the creation of a seamless mix of music. 

The AI systems are applied in a range of manners and depths, based on the design of the software. Some AI-powered DJing tools still require a lot of human input, while others are more self-driven. 

Some of the tasks that AI DJ mixers can help with, include: 

  • Music analysis - AI is often used to determine the musical key and BPM tracks, which is important information for DJs

  • Suggest new music - Platforms like Spotify's AI DJ feature can help users to find new music related to their listening preferences. 

  • Beatmatching - Beatsync and beatmatching features can be performed by AI, helping DJs to get their tracks in time at the click of a button. 

  • Transition creation - AI, as seen in DJ.Studio, can help to create seamless transitions between songs automatically

  • Harmonic mixing - AI can analyze the harmonic content of tracks and suggest compatible songs to mix, ensuring that they sound good together.

  • Automixing - AI can automatically mix tracks based on user preferences or preset criteria, creating a continuous mix without manual intervention.

  • Stem separation - AI can separate a track into its individual components (vocals, drums, bass, etc), allowing DJs to remix and manipulate tracks in creative ways.

  • Track recommendation - AI can recommend tracks to play next based on the current mood, tempo, and style of the mix, ensuring a cohesive set.

  • Dynamic EQ and effects - AI can automatically adjust equalization and apply effects in real time to enhance the sound quality and adapt to the changing dynamics of the mix.

  • Playlist curation - AI can assist in creating and organizing playlists by analyzing track metadata and user preferences, ensuring a well-rounded and engaging selection of music.

These are just some ways that DJs can use AI in their process, depending on what DJ app or software they're using. 

6 Reasons Why You Should Use AI DJ Tools#

While some troglodytes may be afraid or too snobby to take advantage of AI in their DJing, there are several benefits to using it:

  • Time-Saving: AI DJ mixers can significantly reduce the amount of time spent on tedious tasks. This allows DJs to focus more on the creative aspects of their sets.

  • Precision and Consistency: AI tools ensure precise beatmatching and harmonic mixing, which can enhance the overall sound quality of the mix. They provide consistency, reducing the chance of human error.

  • Enhanced Creativity: With features like stem separation DJs can experiment with different elements of a track in ways that were previously time-consuming or technically challenging.

  • Real-Time Adaptation: AI can adjust mixes on the fly, responding to the energy of the crowd or the DJ's immediate needs. This dynamic adaptability can enhance the live performance experience.

  • Accessibility for Beginners: AI DJ mixers lower the entry barrier for aspiring DJs. With automated features, beginners can create professional-sounding mixes while learning the basics of DJing.

  • Stress Reduction: By handling the technical aspects of DJing, AI allows DJs to focus on the joy of performing and connecting with their audience, reducing stress and increasing enjoyment.

AI DJ mixers offer a powerful toolkit that enhances both the technical and creative aspects of DJing. Embracing these tools can lead to more innovative, engaging, and professional performances.

DJ.Studio - The Best AI DJ Mixer Software#

If you're looking for one AI-powered DJ tool that is more cutting-edge and beneficial than all the others, it's DJ.Studio. 

I think what sets DJ.Studio apart is that it's specifically designed around building AI tools for DJs, rather than just adding them on as an afterthought like many other apps do. 

DJ.Studio gives users a unique way to interact with DJing and AI, offering the perfect combination of DJing tools and AI. 

Rather than working like standard mixer and deck software, DJ.Studio takes inspiration from timeline music editors, to create a new workflow process of mix creation. 

These steps show you how to harness the power of DJ.Studio 

  1. Open DJ.Studio - Use the downloaded app for the most power, or you can run it in your web browser for a more streamlined experience. 

  2. Import Music - Start by importing your music library into DJ.Studio. You can upload tracks from your computer or synced DJ software (rekordbox, Traktor, Virtual DJ, Apple Music), or integrate with streaming services like Spotify, YouTube, and Beatport. 

  3. Analyze Tracks - DJ.Studio will automatically analyze the imported tracks to determine their BPM, key, and other relevant metadata. This information is crucial for creating harmonically and rhythmically compatible mixes.

  4. Create a Playlist - Start a new project, and add tracks to the playlist. Here, you can either manually arrange, or take advantage of the AI automix.

  5. Automix - Use DJ.Studio's AI auto mixer to instantly create the perfect playlist order using harmonic mixing, and beatmatching, and generates seamless transitions. You can set parameters to guide the automaker, like transition style, and a preference for key or BPM-based ordering. 

  6. Edit and Refine - Listen to the automated mix. If necessary, make manual adjustments to transitions, effects, or track order. DJ.Studio allows you to fine-tune every aspect of the mix to match your creative vision and use stem separation and sampling to further enhance your mix. 

  7. Export Mix - Once you are satisfied with the mix, export it in your preferred format. DJ.Studio supports various audio formats, including MP3, WAV, and can even be used to create music videos. 

  8. Share and Distribute: Share your mix to social media platforms, streaming services, or DJ-specific sites. You can also save it to your device for offline playback or further distribution. This gives you the perfect tool to quickly make promotional mixes to grow your online reach. 

Other AI DJ Mixer Software#

In addition to DJ.Studio, and several other AI DJ mixer software options are available, each offering unique features and capabilities. Here are a few noteworthy ones:

  • Spotify AI DJ -

    Spotify recently added an AI DJ feature, which is pretty cool, but I don't think it's very useful for real DJs. It essentially mixes a dynamic AI voice platform with Spotify's personalization technology, to bring you a constant stream of new music, narrated by a virtual AI DJ voice. You can use this in the Spotify mobile app. 

  • Virtual DJ - 

    This features AI-powered Stem Separation, which lets you isolate certain elements of tracks on the fly. 

  • RaveDJ -

     RaveDJ is a free, easy-to-use AI DJ app that automixes tracks from YouTube and Spotify. While I think it's far from professional, it's still fun to mess around with.

I started DJing when I was 15. Started a record label, residency by a club in Bristol. I’ve played at all the biggest clubs in Bristol (and the small ones) and have entertained thousands of dancers! I love writing about music, DJing, and technology. I've been blogging for DJ.Studio since the start of the project, and am always happy to answer questions and help fellow DJs out!
