Hey Mr DJ!

Must try and write stuff here again….  In an attempt to kick-start this blog I thought I’d share a cool piece of software I’ve found.

Basically I was looking for something to do DJ-style mixes and this seemed to get very good reviews and isn’t too expensive.

I’ve downloaded the demo and had a play and its pretty cool.  You drag and drop tracks from your iTunes library onto ‘virtual decks’ where you can cue them up, change the tempo and generally do all the things you’d do in the analog vinyl world.  There’s a tap pad for linking the BPM to the track and it can automagically sync tracks to the same tempo.  In theory you can point it at a playlist and tell it to automix it, I’m not entirely convinced this will work well – but the chances are high it won’t be any worse than my rather terrible initial attempts at mixing!

I’ve got ten days to decide if I want to buy it, which coincides nicely with a couple of days off work – just hope the neighbours work during the day!
