Mixxx 1.12 Beta Released!

Hi Mixxxers -- did you miss us? The Mixxx team has been quietly toiling for over 2 years to bring you Mixxx 1.12. This will be our biggest release ever and we need your help to make sure that it's our best ever as well. We've been doing alpha testing with our dedicated forum users for a while now and are ready to release Mixxx 1.12 Beta!

Available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.

There are too many new features and fixes to list all of them, but here's just some of the new things Mixxx can do:
  • 4 Decks with Master Sync
  • New Effects Framework with 4 Effect Units and 5 Built-in Effects:
    • Flanger
    • Bit Crusher
    • Reverb
    • Echo
    • Filter
    • More to come!
  • Configurable, Resizeable User Interface with 3 Brand New Skins
  • Cover Art Display
  • Music Key Detection and Shifting

  • 4 Microphone inputs and 4 Auxiliary inputs
  • MIDI Mapping GUI and Improved Learning Wizard
  • RGB Musical Waveforms
  • Hundreds of Bug Fixes and Improvements
  • New Pitch-Independent Algorithm for Better-Sounding Key-lock.
If you tried the Alpha release, be sure to check out the Beta.  There are a ton of new features and fixes even since then.  And we'll be updating the Beta every week, so you can always have the latest updates.

  1. YEAH! finally!
    thanks a lot!

  2. Дождались, я уж подумал, что разработка закончена. Благодарнасть вам

  3. Don't forget to make an announcement on the facebook and google+ Mixxx pages too!

  4. This release is amazing!

  5. May I ask if anyone comes across any new keystroke in the new beta version to drop me a mail at please please please. I use the software to mix tunes ok, but because I have no sight I use a screenreader. I depend entirely on the keyboard keys to use mixxx so any headsup would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

  6. I was afraid you had let it languish. This is excellent. I'll celebrate with a new mix when this new version comes out.

  7. Everyone I just want to thank you for the awesome work that you guys put into this! This program just keeps getting better and better. I think its finally to a point where this is going to be my primary Dj software.

  8. Help please!!! I have Mixxx software version 1.11.0 and the "Mic" function does not work. The "Mic" button lights up but the talk button does not, nor does it respond. The software recognizes my USB mixer in preferences and allows me to select it.
    If at all possible, can someone get back to me by today or tomorrow with an answer? I had to postpone a talk show last weekend due to the mic function not working and would hate to have to do so again this coming weekend.

    Thank you.

  9. Absolutely number one mixer ! It work perfectly on Mac.

  10. Hi,
    I tested the 1.12.b1 version on Windows XP 32 Bits, but when I run it, it says :
    "le point d'entrée de procédure SetCurrentConsoleFontEx est introuvable dans la bibliothèque de liaisons dynamique KERNEL32.dll" (The procedure entry point SetCurrentConsoleFontEx could not be located in the dynamic link library: Kernel32.dll, in english), so I can't execute it.

    Such a pity.

    Best regards.


  11. Thanks for testing E-Gwen! That is definitely not intended. We'll get that fixed ASAP and I'll drop a note here when the beta is updated.

  12. Ohhh yeaaaaaaaahh!!! we mised you!

  13. E-Gwen -- we updated the beta build and hopefully your issue is fixed. Could you please try again? Thanks for helping us make Mixxx great!

    1. It's Done.
      It works.

  14. Hi,
    It runs now, thanks.
    I manage to use Mixxx 1.12-b1, with Asio4all 2.12 on Windows XP 32 Bits.

    The new interface just makes me a little lost, but I was picking up the right buttons after several seconds.

    It communicates with iTunes 12.1.2 folder, that's ok.
    So, everyone can enjoy.

    Thanks a lot.


  15. Hi,

    I posted a message saying I managed to install MIXXX 1.12-b1 on Windows XP with your new version, but your server should have considered me as a robot.

    Nothing appears about it.


  16. Yeah,
    It runs now !
    I reply several times, but nothing is published !

  17. Qué laarga espera!!!!
    Por fin!
    Muchas gracias chicos.
    Quiero probarlo ya!

  18. Absolutely fantastic! Thanks to all of the contributors for all of your dedicated and continued hard work with developing Mixxx. Keep up the great work.

  19. are there any skins for the beta?

  20. Great work, really impressed by the Key Detection engine.

  21. Continue this way. Thanks!

  22. Thanks for all of the hard work to everyone behind creating Mixxx.

  23. Just BIG THANK YOU for your work!

  24. Great will be perfect if you put an automatic button Left-Right (desk 1 & desk 2).

  25. Great work! I am using mixxx for a long time and the new version seems going to be perfect... If I had one wish, I would prefer a smaller percentage of the scalling factor for the waveform. Sometimes it would be usefull to see approx. 1min in advance for a 10min track.

  26. il mio PC:
    windowsXP (32bit), CPU dual thread (2003)
    il mio portatile:
    Windows7 pro 32bit (oggi windows10 pro), CPU i7

    in entrambi i pc faccio molta fatica ad utilizzare i vinili (MixVibes2) a causa di diversi bug.
    peraltro non riesco a creare un account per parlarne sul forum, peccato.

    il problema l'avevo riscontrato anch'io. Disistallando Mixxx 1.11 e cancellando manualmente le cartelle che restano dopo la disistallazione, il problema sparisce (come spariscono molti altri problemi)

    scusate se ho scritto in Italiano

  27. does this mix video as well as audio?


  28. Mixxx 1.12 Beta works on Windows 10

  29. Awesome! Huge fan of mixxx and this release makes it feature complete in comparison to other DJ software. So excited for all the new effects and the ability to chain! I tried out the beta and it looks like it can even do key recognition now and the resizable GUI is awesome! Things are glitchy and slow still but I'm sure it'll be smooth by the time it gets to release -- great job guys!

  30. I tried to install this on Xubuntu 15.04, but I get a libprotobuf-lite8 dependency error. Ubuntu 15.04 derivatives are using libprotobuf-lite9. Is there away to get over this issue? 

  31. Had tried the beta but it began to freeze up after a added more of my library. I love the look and feel. Hope it gets fixed soon. The stable version has mic issues. Did not get a chance to see if the beta had them too.

  32. Any update on final release?

  33. When I download the new version will it keep my settings such as my created crates?

  34. I'm very happy to use mixxx as a dj software. Thank you

  35. sorry i do not like it to hi tach for a basic users like me ,be nice if you could make a simple version just for streaming into Seacond Life with mic able and auto dj streamline version would be nice .

  36. Download site broken. forbidden warning.

  37. Please suport on MK4 please! in 11.0 no input controler in Linux ;(

  38. I use Mixxx in a club and keep getting asked about using the TVs around the dance floor so when will Mixxx be able to play mp4/avi music video files and output the video to the video card and the audio to normal selected audio outs??? thanks
