Important NoticeOn December 31st, 2015, MusicSphere service will no longer be available.  iTunes music files will not be analyzed to create specialized playlists for newly recorded or downloaded files.  The closing of this service will not affect your current iTunes music library.

Pioneer’s new proprietary MusicSphere technology allows users to enjoy their music in a new way by creating unique mood-based playlists via iTunes for their iPod, iPod Touch, or iPhone device. When installed on a user’s computer, the MusicSphere iTunes plug-in software5 will analyze the entire music library and create specialized playlists based on various musical attributes such as feeling (bright, energetic, gloomy, relaxing calm), rhythm pattern, Beats Per Minute (BPM), year of the song and/or date added to the device.

Additionally, through the MusicSphere plug-in, users can select preferred parameters of their music to create a “DJ Playlist”. This function will create a non-stop mix of up to 100 tracks of the selected music types with the further ability to set the transition effects for blending between songs.

Once an iPod, iPhone or iPod Touch device has been synced with the MusicSphere playlists and is connected to the compatible navigation system (AVIC-Z130BT, AVIC-Z120BT, AVIC-X930BT, or AVIC-X920BT), users can access up to 40 specialized playlists through an animated 3D sphere interface. Each playlist can be accessed from a section of the sphere which can be rotated up, down, left and right with a slight touch of the screen. This unique interface provides a quick, easy and highly visual method of selecting MusicSphere generated playlists.
