Pop Mixing: Similar to Popular Mixing of the original Technika, but with minor changes, such as slightly larger notes. The effects such as fade in, fade out, blink, and blind are free for use rather than charging max points in the first version of technika.
Club Mixing: The equivalent of Technical Mixing from the original DJMax Technika. Newly added are Non-stop Remixes. (see below)
