I was able to confirm the issue on this end. We saw your reply to the blog post on this already and sent the issue over to development. It does seem that even with reset pitch on load unchecked, the pitch is still resetting. Should be an easy enough fix and will come in the next patch/update.
Curious (personally) why you’d want the pitch always up (or down) for all songs during automix?August 4, 2016 at 2:00 pm #8956
Thanks Ryan for your reply.
is because I use PCDJ DEX 3 for “SALSA Rhythm” and the sound I like to much when you downs the pitch, I want to hear all song of “salsa” en automix same range of pitch,
it is possible to do it??

Not sure pitch is really what your after, but rather a constant (same) BPM?
Pitch is a percentage adjustment. Meaning if you set it at 8%, all songs will then load and play at 8% (at least when it’s working properly this is how it works!). It’s not based on BPM, it’s based on percentage. So unless all your salsa songs are already at the same BPM, each will still play at different speeds since it’s going to adjust the pitch up or down based on the percentage the pitch fader is at.
If you have one track at 120 BPM (tempo) and pitch is up 8% than that BPM will be: 129.60
If you have another track at 89 BPM (tempo) and pitch is still up 8% than that BPM will change to: 96.12
We DO have an option for Beat Matching during automix – this feature uses “SYNC” to match BPM’s – instead of pitch. However this won’t likely work for you since it will blend the ins and outs on beat. Although, if you’re using automix it is already going to be blending the ins/outs. Maybe you should try the “beat matching during automix” setting in options and try automix? This way whatever you set the tempo to for the first song loaded all songs should play at that same BPM.
Not sure this will work flawlessly for you but likely better than just pitching up/down.August 4, 2016 at 2:53 pm #8959
ok, but in my understanding, if you uncheck “Reset after automix” should be keep same percentage.
my question is why not keep same percentage , for example I move the pitch -5% or -6% etc, but when Automix load the next song the pitch back the parameters initial , is complicate for my, move for each song and move again a -5% or -6%.
just I want to hear song at same percentage of pitch, sorry for my concern.
I wait that you include or fix the “Reset pitch after automix” this my solution for my request.
kind regards.August 4, 2016 at 2:58 pm #8962
OK, just making sure you understand changing pitch on each song the same percentage doesn’t mean they will all then play at the same speed/tempo.
And again, you’re correct — when you un-check ‘reset pitch after automix’ it SHOULD be keeping the pitch wherever you left it, at the same percentage. This function seems to be broken right now in 188.8.131.52. That’s why my first response said I confirmed the issue and sent it over to development to address.
It will be fixed in the next release, we may even have a patch for it in the next couple of business days.
Thanks for pointing it out, you were the first!August 4, 2016 at 3:20 pm #8963
is correct your point about that.
thanks for your understanding.
I wait the next update of PCDJ DEX 3.
