A dedicated team local to Bournemouth, developing a software application that imitates the live mixing of a professional DJ from the comfort of your home.
A seamless mixture of your preferred music. Utilising an upvote and downvote system, the software detects the music tastes of these with the software installed, as dependant on the average person users of the app.
If almost all of individuals present set their preference to a method of music, the EarShot will create a setlist (the playlist of the event) appropriate compared to that taste.
If taste changes, then new personal preferences can be chosen by individuals and, if upvoted, the new design of music will naturally begin to feed its way into the mix.
This ensures that the music chosen reflects the feelings of the occasion, much such as a live DJ would do in ascertaining audience reactions to aid their choice of music.
Allows other people with the application to make 'demands' to the 'Head DJ', and therefore others can effect the ambiance without having to individually ask the DJ; using EarShot instead. If more folks want house music, then they can all get started to upvote the style.
The product is unlike others of an identical mother nature, such as Pyro by Serato, because additional features can be put into the 'DJ's mixing style' such as filtration system sweeps leading up to a 'drop' in the music, and also differs owing to the collaborative voting system it includes.
By allowing the majority of people show decide the kind of music that should be playing, it requires the burden away from a single person: nobody person has to be in charge of the music.
The USP is the ability to talk between multiple apps to be able to affect the vibe of the event: EarShot makes it possible for simple and easy changes to the disposition if it's what most people want. (Wright, 1999)
