There are a host of DJ apps that can be used on the Mac platform. However, VirtualDJ Home has carved its own niche in a competitive marketplace. It is one of the most popular DJ apps for Mac, specifically targeting the casual DJs wishing to mix their own music. Create home based music mixes by simply dragging and dropping music files or songs into the main pane. The turntable-like interface allows you to mix songs however you like. There are two controllers where you can mix and control two songs. Both have sliders, knobs and other sets of buttons for mixing control. At the bottom of the application interface, you find the track list and album art. There are lots of cool features in this application like the beat lock, looping and beat matching that will make mixing much easier.
It will probably take you a bit of time to get to grips with the software but once you get the hang of it you really can do a lot. There is an extensive variety of effects that can be used in your mixes. VirtualDJ Home is that it is absolutely free, which with this level of features will be hard for other free mixing programs to match. Mixing, remixing and scratching become a breeze and MP3 mix songs are easy to create.
VirtualDJ Home is downloaded more than a million times every month and is one of the most used DJ software programs out there. As this software is about 10 years old, it has definitely come a long way in the field. In fact, renowned DJs like Denon, Hercules and Pioneer use this software for digital mixing. The beat lock engine is terrific and mixing is superbly fast. There is a seamless loop engine that works automatically as well. There is a video mixer providing you with as much great control over your mixing as the audio mixer. A large array of downloadable skins lets you customize the look and feel too.
