 Most tracks have a 4/4 measure but Mixxx should also allow less common measures like 3/4 or 7/8.  Most tracks have a 4/4 measure but Mixxx should also allow less common measures like 3/4 or 7/8. 
 This would be major benefit compared to other DJ software that assumes that all music has a 4/4 measure, which is incorrect for lots of music. ​ This would be major benefit compared to other DJ software that assumes that all music has a 4/4 measure, which is incorrect for lots of music. ​

-The project might be extended towards a sync feature using this new info or into a feature that auto detect bars and phases. ​+Some preliminary work for drawing this information on the waveforms has been [[https://​github.com/​mixxxdj/​mixxx/​pull/​1918|started]]. However, for this to be really useful Mixxx needs a way to store the new time signature and downbeat information in the database and an intuitive user interface for users to edit this information.

 A strong application will list some specific tracks with different time signatures that will be used for testing the new features. Students with backgrounds in music theory and/or playing percussion instruments are encouraged to apply for this project, but these are not requirements and we welcome your application if you do not have that experience. ​   A strong application will list some specific tracks with different time signatures that will be used for testing the new features.
