The program emulates a DJ turntable and features two digital audio players that can play different tracks at the same time. The audio database browser enables you to organize the audio files and to quickly select the ones that you want to use.
It can provide with a full range of audio files since it can handle MP3 files, playlists and songs from the iTunes library. The program can also load an entire folder or browse the local folders in order to load a certain song.
You can use the program to open MP3 files but also video files such as MPG, AVI or MP4 in order to play the audio track. The video files, such as music video clips can also be watched in full screen.
The songs are loaded in the computer’s memory in order to provide you with a shorter response time when performing a scratch or looping a song. The files stored on the local hard disk are loaded almost instantly while loading a CD track can take about 20 seconds.
For the experienced DJ’s the program offers a wide range of features that intend to transform any computer into a virtual turntable. The vinyl simulation includes features like scratch, pitch, reverse play and brake that enable you to create professional grade mixes. Two of the four DJ decks are designed for karaoke and allow you to use this program at parties.
If you prefer to use the mouse and keyboard the interface provides access to all the important functions. The owners of a hardware controller can take advantage of the support provided by the app in order to quickly apply effects. During playback the program uses about 400 MB of memory, depending on the number of songs and the sound quality.
