Beat Jumping with Cue Points: Official Tutorial for DJs

Cue Points mark different parts of your song, and help you locate the parts that you want to play. They are like little flags that say “Here’s an interesting part at 30 seconds, and another one at 1 minute.”

Most DJ software supports up to 8 cue points per track, but you have to set them manually. Fortunately for you, Mixed In Key will detect the best cue points and set them automatically, so you don’t have to do everything by hand. Our cue points “snap” to the beatgrid, so they will always be on beat.

We invented this technology, got a patent on it, and enabled all Mixed In Key fans to use it. It’s a huge time-saver for everyone.
