Use smart limits : allow song start and stop limits to move (in the limit defined by the smart limit maximum) while trying to perform a Beatlock mix.

Smart limit maximum : maximum move of start or stop of a song when allowing smart limits.

Limit BPM detection to : upper and lower bounds of BPM search. Limiting BPM width search avoid some BPM bad guesses and helps DJ Mix Pro to Beatlock better.
Tip : it's a good idea not to let upper limit be greater than ( lower limit * 2 ) since BPM detection easily mistakes with half or double BPM.

Allow tempo adjustment of percent : here you define the pitch change limits. See a mix occurs for more details.
Tip : Allowing changes more than 8 % usually leads to ugly results.

Sound output options tab

Sound output options tab


Sound out options : Many of the items on this tab will be grayed when sound is playing. You can change them at silence time only.

Soundcard updates per second: choose the number of times per second the soundcard receives sound buffers. If you choose too many times per second (more than 12 for example) your sound system will become CPU stress sensitive and may play dirty sound, but having many updates per second makes the program more reactive because you reduce the commands delay.

Number of soundcard buffers : choose the number of buffers the program uses. If you choose too few buffers, the program might become out of buffers if another program uses much CPU, but having few buffers makes the program more reactive because you reduce the commands delay.

Primary soundcard : sound output for songs in playing mode. It can be any of your system soundcard .
