MixedInKey and Platinum Notes

Although there are tons of software available today for DJing, there are two programs I highly recommend purchasing to use with Ableton Live, Platinum Notes and MixedInKey. You don’t have to use them, but I find using them makes for a quicker workflow and helps me build better DJ sets.


  • Finding the key, tempo, energy, and cue points for each song.
  • Helps build a quick set list and know how songs will transition together.

Platinum Notes

  • Makes sure all the songs in your set are at a well-balanced volume
