Mixed In Key has announced version 7.0 of their famous key detection software. This time they've added a powerful new feature for Traktor and Serato, automatic cue points. Placing cue points in tracks can be a time consuming process. DJ's have to load all their tracks individually, find suitable spots, then mark each cue point. With the latest update from Mixed in Key, the software will analyze tracks, detect the BPM/Key as usual, and it will set 8 cue points inside of the tracks.
