Mixxx: A free DJ software option!

In my travels as a mobile DJ where I do teaching seminars and workshops. One question asked is are there any alternatives to Serato, Tracktor, or Virtual DJ? or is there an open source DJ program out there that they can experiment first? Well that answer is YES! Let me introduce everyone to MIXXX if you have not heard.

Mixxx is a free, open source DJ software that gives you everything you need to perform live mixes. Mixxx’s advanced mixing engine gives you complete control over your live mixes. Hot cues, looping controls, and our high fidelity EQs let you mix and remix with more control. 

Create your own MP3 DJ mix today! Why invest your time building your music library with expensive commercial DJ software, when it costs you a hundred dollars to upgrade every year? Through our open source license, Mixxx will always be free, and you’ll never be locked in. It is fully midi capable and works with most every controller. Check out the website at: http://www.mixxx.org/
