Video: Pioneer Mixtrax
I've been a camera nut all my life, so it makes sense I'd end up being a video producer. Of course, it has been a roundabout journey for me, as I started at Crutchfield in 2007 writing about car audio gear. Over the years I've learned about all the electronic items we sell, and it is my job to make sure we are making videos that you will find useful, whether you're shopping for something specific or trying to install some new gear yourself. My job is a lot of fun because I get to play around with all the cool stuff you see on our website while I'm making videos about it. Getting hands-on with the gear helps me see what I should show you about a product, though the flip side is my personal wish list is a mile long...

Pioneer's MIXTRAX™ is a DJ function and software package included with some of the new Pioneer receivers. It brings the musical fun and excitement of a real DJ to your car. First, it analyzes the music in your iTunes® library (on your computer), based on the music's beats-per-minute, chord progressions, and other factors. Then it creates jazzed-up playlists that you can play in the car, as well as providing DJ-style audio transitions and a pulsing light show on the your receiver's face. Check out this video we shot at CES 2012 with one of Pioneer's best trainers, as he explains what makes MIXTRAX so cool.
