DJ Music Mixer is DJ software packed with tools and a mixing engine to cater to aspiring and veteran DJs. wrapped in an intuitive, easy-to-grasp interface, it features innovative functions that cover most needs related to music mixing. Apart from audio tools, it hosts video mixing.
A bundle of useful tools
Being a DJ is stressful and an occupation that comes with many responsibilities. For this reason, many pieces of software exist to facilitate creating, mixing, and playing music seamlessly and flawlessly.
A varied feature set
DJ Music Mixer is a virtual DJ software program looking to help novice and professional DJs alike. With its feature set, intuitive user interface, and reliable mixing engine, it promises to bring you all you need in a single program.
Some of the features include real-time effects, automated beat matching, smart loops and pitch shifting, and video mixing. You'll also find a sampler, audio extractor, and a CD ripper in the program.
This music mixer hosts a ten band equalizer with a possible 15db gain up or down for each deck to adjust the loudness of specific frequencies.
The system also has 16 predefined settings for equalizers. All come with adjustable EQ shelves, ideal for adapting to real environments.
A DJ can't control their remixing well without excellent cue and loop functions. Luckily, DJ Music Mixer allows you to cue audio, or set it ready to play, using drops and triggers. The playback engine features rapid, accurate cue triggers to avoid hiccups.
You can also set up instant looping in beat segments from 1 to 32 with single button clicks.
Audio extraction and video conversion
DJ Music Mixer lets you extract audio from video files or rip them from CDs. Then, save them in MP3 and WAV formats in the program. You can also use tracks from music streaming platforms.
The conversion process is quite quick and doesn't damage the source or the target file.
This program allows you to mix music and bring various songs together professionally. The crossfader combines well with the powerful equalizer to determine the perfect curve in switching songs.
Alternatively, you can take full control over the mixing with cues and loops. The program comes with professional effects, all customizable, that allow you to play around with your output.
Moreover, there are effects such as chorus, waves reverb, distortion, flanger, echo, and gargle. You may use this in mixing as well as while recording your songs.
You can install the program from Program4PC on all versions of Windows. Testing by various anti-virus systems has proven that the program is safe to use and free of malware. Since you don't have to log in to use it, the software is secure with regard to your data.
Unfortunately, this bundle isn't free. However, this pay-to-use program does offer you a free trial to show off what it can do before you commit to a purchase. The only issue here is that the free trial is short, not allowing novice DJs to learn the ropes in the allotted time.
This program features a straightforward user interface, encouraging novices to give it a shot. You'll find all the necessary music mixing tools in the program.
The installation and speed of DJ Music Mixer are fantastic. The program is super lightweight - only 20MB - with low system resource requirements.
The UI is fully customizable. In basic form, it is a simulation of a DJ deck for professionals. However, it's much simpler to learn.
The interface contains two main decks. You load your music, which is possible to do in many audio formats, and start working on audio.
At first glance, the console is packed with features. However, the buttons that denote functions are in vibrant colors, while the console itself is dark, enabling you to find what you seek with ease.
When you start sliding and pushing buttons, the program will show you the end effect. Once you find a control setup you like, you may lock and use it as default.
The design might look too old-school for some, but the UI is neat and well-organized.
Using the program
As mentioned earlier, you can load your music onto two decks. Then, you can play them separately or together. Alternatively, use the crossfading feature to move between songs.
Apart from playing, you can put the wide array of audio effects in use and fine-tune your songs with the utilizers.
Can you record with DJ Music Mixer?
DJ Music Mixer allows you to record your songs and mixes in real time. You can save them as MP3s or WAVs, as well as those you upload. The quality settings enable you to set the song pitch and loop parts to your liking.
There are 12 sampler decks available, too. You can record new samples onto them in-real time.
The playlist module allows you to create a queue of songs for party purposes. You can also add details to each song, such as track time and depth of bits.
Not quite enough
Although DJ Music Mixer is excellent for any budding DJ looking to mix from their Windows PC, it lacks some of the tools professional people consider essential. The price doesn't justify the gains.
On the other hand, although the UI is straightforward, beginners won't find a Help File in the program. There are screenshots and other tutorials on the official website, but again, with a short free trial, it's not quite enough.
You could get similar functionalities for free with Tractor. Edjing Pro and Djay Pro are other full versions for pros. Finally, you can use DJ Mixer Express as an excellent choice for newbies.
Good for honing your skills
DJ Music Mixer is an attractive option for DJs looking to hone their skills. With its wide array of tools and support for most audio file formats, it offers quite a lot in one bundle. However, it’s a bit too complex and pricey for beginners and lacks the finesse that the experts seek, leaving the software somewhere in the middle.
