DJ MixStation is an application which turns your PC into a professional DJ set. It simulates real-world mixing tools. This program works with several audio formats such as WAV, WMA, MP3 and Ogg Vorbis, but it doesn’t work with the AAC format. You can find a manual with pitch sliders and crossfader details for helping to your creative approach.
This software includes some useful tools to mix and enhance your music such as a sampler to activate sound effects and a wide range of samplers to complete your track, also incorporating compression. This program is ideal for practicing or playing at a live event. It also brings you an automatic BPM detection and dual waveform display works pretty well.
How to use it
DJ MixStation is pretty easy to use. Once you download and install it, you will be able to start making your songs. If you have never used a program like this one, the interface may be a bit overwhelming, but don’t worry, you will get used to it. This interface has metal finishes, lots of dials and two virtual decks. DJ MixStation automatically locates and catalogs your files by scanning your hard drive. It is quite easy to play different tracks and synchronize their tempos to mix the music. The mouse is a poor choice compared to the tactile tools of real DJ equipment. However, this is a good entry point to start providing a decent approximation of pitch bending and scratching.
To play a tune, you just have to drag it from the track-list and drop it onto one of the decks. If you have two sound cards installed in your PC, this software lets you choose one for use with the amp and speakers. Also, you will be free to use the other ones through headphones, allowing you to listen to the second deck independently.
