About iZotopeAt iZotope, we’re obsessed with great sound. Our intelligent audio technology helps musicians, music producers, and audio post engineers focus on their craft rather than the tech behind it.
Check out the release announcement for a list of new features.
Although Mixxx 2.2.3 contains many important updates and bugfixes, it's possible some users may experience issues. If you do, you can still get our previous stable version, Mixxx 2.1.8.
Mixxx v2.1 has hit public beta for Mac, Windows, and Linux — download installers here. As a guide, the latest Mac beta (which I suspect are early betas) has crashed for me while analysing tracks, so don’t go using it where your career depends on it. That said, bloody good work Mixxx people. Apr 04, 2015 If you tried the Alpha release, be sure to check out the Beta. There are a ton of new features and fixes even since then. And we'll be updating the Beta every week, so you can always have the latest updates. Help Translate Mixxx In order to make this release rock in every language we need your help with translations! Apr 18, 2018 For users upgrading from Mixxx 2.0 or older, we have a few important announcements. First, if you are using Windows, you will have to uninstall any old versions of Mixxx before you can install 2.1 (unless you were using the 2.1 beta or release candidate). How to uninstall Mixxx varies on different versions of Windows.
Mixxx is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux.
- Mixxx accepted for GSoC 2020! Posted on 2020-02-20 by Jan Holthuis. Mixxx has been accepted as a mentoring organization for Google Summer of Code 2020, a global program that aims to bring more student developers into the world of open source development. This means that students have the opportunity to work on Mixxx full-time as a 3 month programming project and receive a stipend.
- Two years ago, Mixxx 1.11.0 was released, and at the time Mark expressed concerns about the lack of key features, and the future of the project under the open source free model. Since then, the Mixxx team took the words in the manner in which they were offered, and came back with a humungous upgrade. The public Mixxx 1.12 offers four decks, effects, and a generous serving of more stuff.
- May 02, 2015 Thanks to all of your help with alpha testing we just released Mixxx 1.12 Beta! We still need your help though! We've got a ton of work to do before we can ship 1.12.0 final. The plan is that the beta will be a rolling release that we update on a regular basis.
- Mixxx beta releases for users who'd like to test out new features at the expense of some stability. These releases may be unstable and we strongly recommend that you avoid using them for live performances.

It feels like ages since the last update to Mixxx. Personally, I’m a big proponent of opensourcesoftware (or FLOSS, if you like), but the nature of the beast means it just won’t have the resources to keep up with big companies like Adobe or Native Instruments. I would personally be quite happy moving over to one of the flavours of Debian-bases Linux, if not for the fact most of my music software doesn’t exist there. The situation is much better than it has ever been, with apps like xwax, Ardour or Blender. And now Mixxx has raised their open source game yet again.
The app isn’t perfect, though. There are several skins built in to this release, including one that’s almost certainly influenced by Ableton Live’s UI, but they all still feel a bit busy and cluttered and it can be hard to see what is where on screen when you first try it. Setting up isn’t as plug ‘n’ play as commercial offerings, either, with mapping options relying on DIY rather than a large existing library of controllers.
All in all, this seems like a solid beta from the team, and hats off to them for doing it off their own backs and in their spare time. While two years might seem like a long time to develop a new version of DJ software, when you think about how it’s done by a team of coders all around the world, as a hobby, the new features are not only welcome, they’re even more impressive. Take that Native and Serato!
Grab the beta straight from the Mixxx website and give it a go!
