Move from BPM Studio to UltraMixer in 5 clicks

BPM Studio is a software for professional and hobby Dj’s developed by the company Alcatech. It’s still favored by a consistent and loyal clientele, but lately users keep waiting for important updates. Meanwhile the software is no longer state-of-the-art. For many users this is a reason to switch to another software. That’s often accompanied by troubles.

Archives consisting of hundred thousand files that grew over the years and underlie a careful ordinance must be moved and sorted again – a huge expenditure of time!

That’s why we added a way to move your file archive from BPM Studio to UltraMixer in a few clicks. Even your folder structure and your smart groups will remain. You’ll find an instruction down below.

Similarities of BPM Studio and UltraMixer

Easy to change due to similar appearance

First you might recognize that BPM Studio and UltraMixer look almost the same. This makes it easier to former BPM Studio users to switch to the new software.

We offer three different versions as well: Home, Basic and Pro (Private, Standard and Pro in BPM Studio). Details of each version and the features you’ll find here.

The user interface is constructed similarly. It’s divided into two decks with an inherent playlist and control elements. You have the same features on hand and many more in addition – first of all the ability of UltraMixer to support midi gadgets which is still not possible in BPM Studio.

The archive in BPM Studio is also comparable to UltraMixer’s one. And that’s exactly why you can transfer it 1:1. 

And now we show you how to do this.
