Mixing in key is a great way of making your transitions sound smoother and improving the overall quality of your mix. Serato can detect and display the key of your tracks to help you mix harmonically, see how in the video below!

  1. This feature is really great! I don’t pay attention for a long time to key mixing. After I start to use it, a lot of tracks sound better during mix time. But I don’t stick to it. Sometimes I just mix tracks, which aren’t in key.

  2. I only mix in key for YouTube/MixCloud mixes. Out in the clubs so long as you’re keeping the energy in the right spot, nobody really cares or notices when you go up and down different keys

  3. Thank you for this video. I wasn’t aware that you could change the keynote to make it the same as the other track within the Serato software. Now that I know this, I’m going to purchase the pitch n time expansion. Once again, thank you very much for this video lesson. Greatly appreciated.

  5. As an old-school (retired) DJ I can honestly say that harmonic mixing (in key) is irrelevant. You may disagree….but why…when playing the same song in counterpoint (2, or 4 or 8 beats behind) chords and melodic notes struck in subject, most of the time, seem sour and out of tune when in contrapuntal? In conclusion: The most significant underlying “nose-to-the-grindstone” rudimentary mixing principle for the DJ is: matching rhythm patterns.

  6. Hey I’m new to your channel. I hope that I can learn a lot from you. I just got myself a SB3 and really am excited to learn some things so I can try my hand in djing
