I am trying to automate some items within the Mixxx application. I have listed below what I am using…
- Ubuntu 20.04
- Mixxx 2.0.0
Right now I have it where the library will auto scan the folder the music files are contained in. When a song is added I just press ALT + L then press ENTER. The newest song(s) appear. I want to try and achieve where after the scan picks up the new music, how can I place it in the AutoDJ playlist automatically?
Now, options - preferences I see the following options–
- Load track to next available deck
- Add track to Auto-DJ Queue (Bottom)
- Add track to Auto-DJ Queue (Top)
Now I am trying to understand what this is telling me… does this mean that something has to happen to have the song auto load to the AutoDJ queue? When a file is added to the library and discovered do I just add it to the deck and the autoDJ goes from there? What would be nice is if there is a way to auto play the music once its in the library.
Right now, (( I could be wrong )) but right now it just seems that the library can scan and show you a song is there but there is no way to auto play that song once its added to the system.
1.) The library scan auto scans the folder itself every so often without resetting the application or doing it manually
2.) Once the song is added from the library, it que’s itself up so auto DJ can take over and play
Basically its pretty automated, and all your doing is adding songs to the folder, Mixxx takes care of the rest. I will also say I am fairly NEW to Mixxx and still learning it a bit. If there is a process that can be relevant to my explanation that would be awesome!!
I look forward to the feedback and thanks for taking the time to help me out and see what my
