MP3 - DJ is a desktop music mixing tool for your PC that provides you with all the tools required to play music like a DJ and create smooth remixes. It features several additional functions, such as support for two soundcards and basic-level conversions.
All necessary DJ tools
One of the most popular jack-of-all-trades digital audio workstations is Ableton Live, but sometimes, you want a more dedicated program. MP3 - DJ is just that tool.
This programme can play two songs simultaneously and lets you automatically or manually mix the transitions for a smooth remix.
However, the UI has a very outdated look or an old-school, real-life booth console. It's not difficult to navigate for anyone with some experience in the business, but it could be much more attractive.
Apart from the tools for equalising, normalising, and audio adjustments, you'll find a place for Compact Disc Database, which shows artist names, song titles, and album art.
This software can play any audio CD, which aligns with its outdated look and feel. When it comes to imported audio file formats, it works with MP3, WAV, and OGG.
This programme contains two side-by-side audio players that read separate audio files. In each player, there's a playlist for the DJ to cross-fade.
The Scan function helps you find specific titles, while the playlist archive displays the collection of queued songs. Furthermore, the programme displays the track statistics.
The software converts MP3 files into WAV and vice versa. You can also edit the tags and images on your MP3 files. Other extras include a wishlist function, pitching tool, CD ripper, and song sampler.
You can use this programme for free. However, going premium brings you a more extensive song library, higher bitrate, and extra adjustment options.
An intermediate-level tool
MP3 DJ is a handy tool for aspiring DJs who are over the simplest of tools yet not ready for professional utilities. While it can be quite useful, you can get more bang for your buck with Traktor Pro or VirtualDJ on this level.
