    DJ Software

    Hey all!

    A friend and I, about 3 years ago started up a small DJ Business. We have been buysing things along the way to grow. Just yesterday we spent about $1000 in new items.

    We now are advertising more and have grown to be bigger than any other local DJ.

    We curretnly use Winamp to play music ripped from CD's. We use to use DJ Mix Pro, but it was only good for beat locking (we could NEVER get it to work). Since beat locking didn't work we figured to just use Winamp.

    We are not looking for new software with beat locking and other good options.

    Please share your knowledge with me!

    Thanks alot!

    Please ignore spelling errors. I always type to fast and don't look at what I'm typing!

    You might find one or two DJ / Webhosts here but, I'd try cross posting this to ArsTechnica.... They have a huge community over there thats a little less specialized and you'd probably get better feedback from there

    Kev, sorry for being a bit off topic, but with your experience and resources, consider contacting Rewdog and iNET to get involved with WHT Radio and host a program or a show or something.

    Hey Kevin,

    As I've worked in the music industry in the past, I can give you a few hints.
    Some of the DJ's I worked with were using MixMAN studio, others were using SoundForge LIVE.

    But there are quite a few other good ones out there, do a quick research and you'll find them.

    visiosonic dot com (still too new to post URLS to websites, sorry for this)

    Stuff that I sell, not that I'm advertising. I'm not a DJ, and those that I work with use turntables or CD Players. There are a few packages out there. If you need any input, let me know.

    DJ Software I have are as follows: MixMan Studio Pro, AcidPro and Fruity Loops.

    All are very nice with exceptional output.

    Carp, if your worried about actually mixing the tunes and beat locking etc. you should go for something like final scratch. Sorry if you already are aware of this, but, it has two special records w/ turntables that play the digital songs on your computer based on where the record is. If you really want control over your mixes go for this, although it is a bit expensive. Unless you wanna start buying records: go with Technic 1200s.

    I recommend Traktor DJ Studio too and for producing music check out Propellerheads Reason and other ph softwares. They are excellent for music making/mixing.

    For what you're looking for, I'd either recommend OtsJuke or PCDJ. Downside of Otsjuke is that you have to convert all files from MP3->OTS format using their program, but overall, it's a very solid program. With PCDJ, you can have an external rackmountable controler that works just like a dual cd player - See http://www.pcdj.com/Images/ProductImgs/Scrns/DAC_L.jpg for an example.

    I'd recommend that you have a dual cd player as a backup in case your computer crashes - I'd suggest the CD Mix-1 ( http://tinyurl.com/ywz3t ).

    If you're interested, I can PM you a few DJ CD subscription services websites - These companies help out a ton when DJing middle school, high school and college dances.

    Paul,

    The poster DJs weddings and high school dances - Are you going to spin 100% unedited rap or techno music at either events? I don't think so. There are differences between mobile and club djs. What about radio DJs? Their only jobs now are pretty much announcing songs. Most programming is taken care of by the station engineers or corporate programming people (for the larger stations owned by companies such as Clear Channel) , and the playing of music (and switching of songs) are taken care of by professional level software. Those are 3 different kinds of DJs.

    -Josh

    rusko,

    Thats old school. Everyone is using computers these days. I still respect those using the old way. But if you're going to act like that, don't post
