Those who want to be DJs or users looking to create a better sound mix for social gatherings need a program capable of mixing audio files. Radiologik DJ for Mac functions well, but the full version's high cost and its limited utility make it a questionable choice for all but the most serious audio listeners.
Radiologik DJ for Mac offers a free trial version, while the full program costs $128. The only trial version restriction is that a pop-up menu stops the program every 30 minutes and must be dismissed to continue. The program's small size of about 15MB meant it downloaded and installed cleanly. There were no instructions readily available and technical support was not apparent. Because of the complicated interface, the lack of guidance is a major flaw. Finding a playlist for loading is not difficult, but the sheer number of buttons, each lacking clear graphics, makes using the program difficult for all but those with experience using audio mixing software. Once loaded, the audio plays well, but the default settings for fading in and out make working with audio difficult. Easier-to-read functions for beats per minute and other common DJ tools would have been a nice addition.
Though it's functional, Radiologik DJ for Mac's extreme price for the full version and confusing interface lead us to believe that users should look elsewhere for audio-mixing programs.
