Can Your Current Media Player System Perform As Well As True Blend™?

The True Blend™ Media Player System (MPS) is a bold new AUDIO MIXING design that also provides an unprecedented level of SEARCH POWER, plus advanced PLAYLIST CONTROL.  Because the True Blend™ MPS is licensed as part of the Music MegaBase® Catalog (MMBC) Media Edition, it offers a searchable, user-modifiable, hit-music reference database—supplied with listings for more than 4,000 popular recordings.

By reading the notes below, you will discover how the True Blend™ MPS brings smooth gapless overlapping transitions to audio mixing.  True Blend™ is perfect for mobile DJs, 'live' events operators, and home entertainment users.  As you review True Blend™ capabilities, compare the True Blend™ experience with other software products which have an "auto play" mode that often produces annoying dips, clips, and gaps.

 

Comparing the True Blend Mixing Experience with Other Products

 

 

 

 

 

True Blend Media Player System

 

Most Other digital media player designs

 

Event:  Typical music file playback transition for AUTOMATIC advance in AUTO mode

 

OVERLAPPING transitions that automatically time and blend two stereo music tracks—from two discrete players; Track B begins playing at full volume as Track A starts to FADE*; levels and fade durations are logically controlled producing natural sounding concurrent audio; *True Blend can automatically adjust each track’s timing based on fade or cold (abrupt) endings; so, if a track ends COLD, the start of the next track will be heard to ADJOIN the end of the previous track

 

Non-overlapping transitions that generally consist of a gradual fade OUT for Track A, followed by a gradual fade IN for Track B; this single player design often results in unnatural premature fade outs for Track A, and clipped content for the start of Track B; typical “auto play” designs cannot reliably adjust for timing differences between fade end or cold (abrupt) end tracks—often, this results in a transition with a forced FADE for a track designed to end COLD

 

Event:  Typical music file playback transition for MANUAL advance in AUTO mode

 

OVERLAPPING transitions that automatically blend two stereo music tracks—from two discrete players; Track B begins playing at full volume as Track A starts to fade; levels and fade durations are logically controlled producing natural sounding concurrent audio; unlike other products, the True Blend™ design does NOT "dump" audio from the active player when a manual transition to the next track is executed

 

Non-overlapping transitions that generally consist of an immediate end of Track A audio, followed by a an immediate start for Track B audio; this single player design always causes the unnatural “dump” of Track A in order to permit the start of Track B

 

Event:  Fade durations applied for AUTOMATIC advance in AUTO mode

 

OVERLAPPING transitions that automatically blend two stereo music tracks—from two discrete players; Track B begins playing at full volume as Track A starts to fade*; shorter fade time applies a more aggressive fade slope but does not affect quality of blend as each track is reproduced in its own player; longer fades use a milder fade slope; *True Blend fade durations compensate for fade or cold endings

 

Non-overlapping transitions that generally consist of a gradual fade OUT for Track A, followed by a gradual fade IN for Track B; shorter fade time usually increases the unnatural effect of premature fade outs for Track A, and produces a more severe level “ramp up” for the start of Track B; typical “auto play” designs cannot reliably auto-adjust for timing differences between fade end or cold (abrupt) end tracks

 

Event:  Fade durations applied for MANUAL advance in AUTO mode

 

OVERLAPPING transitions that automatically blend two stereo music tracks—from two discrete players; Track B begins playing at full volume as Track A starts to fade; shorter fade time applies a more aggressive fade slope but does not affect quality of blend as each track is reproduced in its own player

 

Non-overlapping transitions that generally consist of an immediate end of Track A audio, followed by a an immediate start for Track B audio; changing fade duration has no effect because this single player design always causes the unnatural “dump” of Track A in order to permit the start of Track B

 

Event:  MANUAL and AUTOMATIC transitions during Preview Duration mode

 

User-selectable limited duration causes sampling of the first portion of each track on playlist; OVERLAPPING transitions automatically time and blend two stereo music tracks—from two discrete players; Track B begins playing at full volume as Track A starts to fade; levels and fade durations are logically controlled producing natural sounding concurrent audio

 

Preview (sample) mode feature may not be available; if present, non-overlapping transitions as described above are likely to occur

 

Event:  MANUAL and AUTOMATIC transitions during Programmed Duration mode

 

User-programmable duration permits assigning a precise (to within ¼ second) play time for each discrete track on playlist; OVERLAPPING transitions automatically time and blend two stereo music tracks—from two discrete players; Track B begins playing at full volume as Track A starts to fade*; levels and fade durations are logically controlled producing natural sounding concurrent audio; *True Blend can automatically adjust each track’s timing based on fade or cold (abrupt) endings; the True Blend™ design gives priority to pre-programmed durations, and seamlessly switches to calculated timing when appropriate; programmed durations are saved and automatically loaded with each track at run time

 

Programmed mode feature may not be available; if present, non-overlapping transitions as described above are likely to occur

The MMBC True Blend™ MPS also provides a superior automatic track selection and transition experience.  Unlike certain solutions that implement an automix with software selected sequencing that arbitrarily truncates (i.e. removes) the first section of a first song, or eliminates the last section of a second song, in order to simulate a stylized beat match effect—the True Blend™ MPS performs overlapping transitions without removing any creative content.

Just who might benefit from the power of the True Blend™ Media Player System?  Mobile DJs, Radio Broadcasters, Theatrical Events Producers... and more.
