Automix, delete track already loaded re-appears

Good day!

djay Pro AI 3.1.2, MacOs 11.4

In automix mode, after I did delete a track already loaded on a deck, it gets skipped but keeps re-apearing (re-loaded) on a deck after the next track.

Looks like the deleted track is invisibly buffered somewhere between the queue and the deck which causes it to re-appear.

I would like to suggest one of these behaviours.

  1. (Preferred)
    The deleted track instance is deleted completely from the queue and internal buffer and will never be heard of again in this session unless you add it to the queue again.

  2. The deleted track instance is inserted back at the front of the queue so that it is explicitly visible and can manually be removed (or not).

Kind regards, Bart.

I can confirm that this is a bug. Tried both on iPhone & iPad latest versions 3.7.3

This needs fixing for both Eject & Load next.

When you eject or load next track. Djay forgets to delete the up-next track from the auto mix list and gets the next track in the playlist and places it in front of the up-next track that you just tried to get rid of. And so it will keep trying to play that track again.

Just go and look at auto mix after you eject a track and you will see it still there and giving you the impression of buffering in the background (it’s in full sight lol).

Until this is fixed it’s a waste of time using those options with auto mix turned on. For now you have to click on auto-mix and delete (eject) the up next track and it then loads the next playlist track and works correctly from then on.

Thanks for reporting this Automix behavior on djay Pro AI for Mac and iOS, Bart and @SteNight. Thanks also for your suggestions for how you’d like to see this work, Bart.

I’ve passed all of this information along to our development team for further investigation, and I’ll keep you posted when I have any updates.

Confirming this to be an issue and posting to follow the thread.


100% this is an issue. I can’t honestly believe that a DJ App developer would release it having not noticed this.

I was using DJAY PRO AI last night 18th September for a gig and the latest version to be released and this issue is still happening in automix on my MacBook Pro running Big Sur again the latest release.
When is this issue going to be sorted out as it is so annoying… the deleted track just keeps returning and can spoil the night especially when the song does not follow in tempo or genre to what the previous track was… I ended up having to play Barry white between 2 Motown songs as it just kept loading on the next available deck.

Please fix this issue

This 2 month issue is a huge issue for me & my staff. So much so that I have DJs looking into other apps. We have been a company that supports DJay Pro form the first version. We love it but now it seems it is not allowing us to do our jobs correctly. We had a work around by selecting the “automix” view then selecting “next” then going back to “video mixing” view to get around it. Now that no longer works in the latest update.

Bottom Line: The automix function is not bringing in the next song anymore.

@Emily over a month ago you said an update is coming to fix our Automix issue. I just wanted to check back in to see if you had an update on next release.

Hi @Logan_Pennington, Thanks for checking in about this again. Sorry for the time it’s taking for the Mac update to be released!

I’ve checked in with our Dev Team about this, and it looks like we ran into some delays from the previously expected timeframe. I’m very sorry about this, and want to thank you once again for your patience. I’m still unfortunately not able to provide a firm release date, but rest assured I’ll update this thread when it’s available.

@Emily I’ve also encountered this issue and there was a release to 3.8.4 around or about Dec 16th 2021 or so.

Was this fixed? It completely defeats the purpose of AutoMix and if it isn’t fixed before my next gig in a few days, I DEF need to move on to other software…

Hope you guys solved this and it’s been way too long as an open issue against the very reason some of us chose the software in the first place…

Hi @eFromDC,

Thanks for reaching out about this. My apologies as you’re absolutely right that I didn’t update this thread and close it previously as I should have. I do appreciate the nudge!

This issue was fixed in djay Pro AI for iOS version 3.8 and later, and djay Pro AI for Mac 3.1.8 and later.

If you have the latest versions of the app, and are finding this issue to still occur, please let me know and I’ll be happy to assist further.

Perhaps I’m still new to the software…and that very well may be the case…but tracks that have been played by Automix now have a blue check ( see two attached images ).

They do NOT remove themselves from Automix and therefore STILL PLAY…

Is there a setting that perhaps removes items w the blue checkmark from an active Automix playlist?

It looks like you may have the “Repeat” function activated, as shown here:

If this is active, Automix will play the songs in the playlist, add the blue checkmark to indicate they were played, and then add them back to the playlist to repeat later on again. Please go ahead and deactivate this option, and let me know if that solves the issue for you.

“… Perhaps I’m still new to the software…“

YEP! That’ll do it… Lol

Repeat removed and Thank you Emily. It’s appreciated…
