How To Find The Best Mashup Software

What is the best mashup software on the market?


For DJs looking to get into making their own music in addition to playing other people’s music view mashups as kind of the ‘end all, be all’ of music making. But what about new DJs who want to do their own thing but have no idea how or where to begin?

Well for you newbies out there it is all about finding the best mashup software…mostly. Of course the software will only do so much for you; an ear for music, creativity and a desire to create something truly great are also required. But that’s up to you and for a different article.

Today my focus is helping you find mashup software so you can get start right away so keep reading!

A Word Of Advice

Before we get into the intricacies of mashup software let’s talk for a minute about what a mashup is and is not. Sure a mashup is technically combining 2 complete tracks together to create a unique track. But don’t think that you can just take your 2 favorite tracks, throw’em in the software and BAM you have a kick ass mashup.

That is not how it works. In fact producing takes more than just a love of music; it also requires more than a little knowledge of music theory. This means paying close attention to the little things in each song to see how well they go together. The software will do a lot of the work for you but it won’t do all.

Sound Quality

One of the first things the best mashup software has is amazing sound quality. You want to make sure that the software doesn’t skew the sound or blow it out. It doesn’t matter how good a mashup is if the sound sucks.

Creating your own mashups means paying close attention to bass, drums and any other instruments as well as the tempo.

It’s important to understand that by mashing tracks you’re basically going to be stretching out already-compressed music files. Some music and mashup traditionalists will tell you that when this is done using software compared to say high-end super techie studio products, it sounds awful. Well by comparison sure, but mashup software is a less expensive way to get your feet wet in the world of mashups.

Can You Use It?

This is a no-brainer but you need to be able to use the best mashup software you can find. Right now the software getting the most lip service is Ableton Live but Mixed In Key has also recently released its own software, Mashup.

Of course any beginner DJ can follow even the most basic instructions, but you also need to be able to read and understand different aspects of creating music. Mixed In Key will match the key for you so that’s taken care of but what about waveforms? Tempo? BPM? EQ? These are things you’ll have to understand before using the software.


File Support

Before you choose mashup software you want to know what file types does it support? In this day and age most DJs have MP3, but what about the other various file types out there? If you have tons of WAV files, make sure your software supports it—Ableton Live does.

Bells & Whistles

Ok so usually I would say that a good piece of software isn’t about the bells and whistles but the quality of the bells and whistles it has. But when it comes to mashups, the best mashup software should provide you with variety. You need to create an original track that’s unique and that people want to hear.

To do that you’ll need choices to do whatever you feel needs to be done to create a proper mashup. You’ll need effects, cut and paste options, looping and filters just to name a few. In fact it is the ‘bells & whistles’ section that keeps Ableton Live as the best mashup software. Mixed In Key is fairly new and without any real effects and limited editing options.

This is really a must because with limited options you’re limited in how good your mashups can be.


Price is always an issue when purchasing any type of DJ equipment, but since there aren’t a ton of options for mashup software you don’t have many choices. The new Mixed In Key software is inexpensive, around $40 (USD) but it is severely limited. A full version software of Ableton Live can run you more than $300 but it does offer a mashup DJ a lot and it’s a well-known and trusted software maker.


Ok in all honesty I put this category in here because Mixed In Key Mashup says you can create a mashup in 5 minutes or less. For the record you probably can do that, but you definitely shouldn’t. Creating any good music, including a mashup, takes time to make sure all components fit properly. This means you may need to create it, listen and change it.

If creating fast mashups is your goal then this is something you’ll want to consider when buying mashup software. But I think the best mashup software will have more features and functions instead of fast promises.
