Mixxx has lots of shiny new features, and a brand new version, has been in testing for a long time and then as a rebranded as a full new release.
Mixxx is a free, open-source DJ mixing console that turns your digital music collection into the source for a full range of mixing, programming, and effects for recording or live presentation.
While all you need is laptop to use Mixxx, it can also control two turntables, even analog turntables, with special time-synched media.
Mixxxs Vinyl Control with one of several time-synched records, you can control your digital music just like your analog records. Mixxx enables scratching, hot cues, looping, and other effects, in addition to its core mixing and equalization features.
Most of Mixxxs library and playlist features will be familiar to anyone who has used an MP3 player; likewise, loading songs is easy, adjusting the levels, and other basic controls, though were glad Mixxx offers such extensive and detailed assistance, too.
What the Mixxx project really needs is for a professional UI designer to take the elements and create a skin that rivals Serato DJ, Djay Pro, or Traktor DJ for iPad (Sorry Traktor Pro and Rekordbox DJ, but youre not the best examples for UI design). Anyone reading this up for the challenge?
Great software for former Vinyl or CD DJs returning from a hiatus and into digital DJ software or curent vinyl or CD DJ shifting to digital DJ software. Also for those who want to learn to DJ.
