MixTape is a simple, beautiful and easy to learn application for making beat matched mixes.
By simply drag dropping the music you already have in iTunes (or from the finder), MixTape adds detected tempo and beats. Tracks are then dragged onto a workspace where they now "snap to grid" along their beats and play in sync. Precisely in sync. The live UI means you can always hear what's underneath the playhead as if it were recorded on magnetic tape and waveform images mean you can see the music in front of you (yes, it looks great on retina). Finally automated volume and HiLo controls add that all important final polish to your creations.
Mixes can then be exported at a configurable bitrate back into iTunes to play on your Mac, iPod or iPhone; or exported losslessly.
You can even compose your mixes live - simply cue up your first track, start the live stream then continue to use your headphones to mix as usual. The live stream will also emit midi so lighting or VJ rigs can be kept in sync with the music as it is played.
Far simpler than either an audio workstation or a DJ app, MixTape embraces the Mac aesthetic to blend in perfectly with your desktop. Finally a short series of video tutorials emphasise 'show' over 'tell' and creative commons licensed demo mixes both show what can be done and how.
Used by DJ's, gym instructors and just ordinary people... we mix our own music and you can too.

Ratings and Reviews
Prior to 1.3.1 Was amazing - now unusable
I have been holding off writing this as I was hopeful that I was going to get support. After the 1.3.1 update the application is totally unusable as the import functionality to bring new songs into the libary no longer functions. I have tried uninstalling the full application and reinstalling to no avail. I recieved an email communication from the support website when I first started having issues. All future communications have not been responded to. I paid $70 for software that now doesnt work and I can not get support. Dont waste your money
Easy way to make long mixes
I use MixTape Pro to make long party mixes. I was able to make a 3 hour mix for a party I was having, and it worked great. I mostly like it because it allows me to change the BPM which makes it possible to beatmatch, and adjust volume levels to easily fade in and fade out songs. I recommend watching the tutorial videos before getting started.
Keeps on crashing.
I’m really disappointed with this app. Like most users this app keeps on crashing, which makes it unusable. I emailed customer support and never heard back from anyone. Very disappointed that I spent a good amount of money for this junk.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
