Ratings and Reviews
Great featureset for free, but not user friendly.
For those who are having problems with no audio output, go to File -> Preferences -> Audio and change the output device to the correct destination. For me it defaulted to AirPlay for some reason.
This app is extremely feature rich for being free. Pitch matching, measure sync, and so much information output that I'm actually a wee bit overloaded. It also runs really smooth. I'm impressed that it correctly parses the iTunes XML file to instantly show my song library, unlike some other apps which insist on scanning the file structure. Support for different bindings on different keyboards is awesome.
Preferences is on the File menu instead of the Application menu, making it easy to overlook. This makes for a confusing first use, since it doesn't default to the built in audio out and it's not clear how to fix that. Interface is very daunting and not newbie friendly; if you don't know how to DJ already then the purpose of most of the controls will completely illude you. Could REALLY benefit from a tutorial. The chosen star graphics for the itunes playlists are too bright and lack contrast, making them hard to read at a glance. Could also benefit by some different fonts, the text in the collection pane is way too large.
Highly impressed with the capabilities of this freeware and will almost certainly stay as my go to DJ software for Mac. I’m quite familiar with DJ software, and it took me less than 10 minutes to get the hang of and exceed my expectations.
The beatgrid editor is easy to find/use and the markers themselves convey the downbeat and the measures, the ability to set ALL of my own hotkeys was enormously useful and mapping them didn’t take long, scanning my library was quick, automatically stores bpms in displayed metadata, the waveforms can be modified to make visualizing songs useful when trying out new things… Those are just the features I was extremely impressed by, there’s plenty more to like though.
To be fair I haven’t tried uploading anything to SoundCloud, utilized the VDJ portion, or used a MIDI controller, but I’m sure that every feature included with this software is just as powerful and easy to use as the aforementioned pros.
The ULTIMATE DJ App for Macs!
I’m fairly new to the whole DJing world and thought I’d give it a go! A friend of mine recommended me this app and since it was free, I couldn’t argue against it. It downloaded and installed within a few minutes and I was up and running. The app is incredibly well made and it was so easy to get the hang of it. I made a few mixes of some songs I had been wanting to for so long! The finished product sounded excellent and I was happy as ever. Click of a button and BOOM! It was up on soundcloud and I could share it on my Facebook. This app has done wonders for me and certainly has got me attached to DJing. A big thanks to the developers for giving it out for free! I’ve just bought the paid version since there’s nothing like it out there! A must for all!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
