Changing next track on Automix removes song from manual list (bug)


On a manual playlist in Automix, changing the next track to a different one removes the queued track from the playlist (unintended behaviour) rather than dropping it down one place (intended behaviour).


I’m DJing an event where I need to play songs from start to finish, no need to mix, but with minimal silence between songs or even gentle overlap.

The set is prepped in advance but will also need to adapt to the moment or to requests. There will also be occasions where I will need to leave the booth for a couple of songs. So I setup a manual list automix, switch to two deck Pro view and I’m good to go. When I’m at the booth, I can fade or blend the tracks with no issue and when I’m away it’s setup to minimise silence as much as possible and auto plays the next track when the other finishes.

My problem is that if I need to change the song that will be played next and drag a different track onto the second deck from my files, the song that was queued there disappears from the Automix (manual) list completely rather then drops to third place in the list (1st place - currently playing, 2nd place - cued on second deck, 3rd place in the automix manual list.

On the iPad version the automix “up next” list has the 2nd place song - (which is cued on the second deck) listed first. Dragging a new song to the top of that list makes that song play next (2nd place)

On the MacOS version, the automix “up next” list has the 3rd place song listed first. Dragging a new song to the top of that list makes that song play third (3rd place)

Can the MacOS version please be updated to allow changing the next song and retaining the list order or is there something I’m missing that could make this work on MacOS?

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks
