Review: presetDj for Mac lets you add music files to sophisticated custom playlists

Drag and drop audio files from iTunes and Finder to create easily manageable playlists using presetDj for Mac.

presetDj for Mac allows you to drag and drop audio files from iTunes and other sources into the application interface to create on-the-go playlists. It's a wonderful app if you have audio files located in multiple playback applications or locations and need a quick way to bring them together before a big party. Besides, the app offers a couple of other features, too.

With presetDj for Mac you can drag and drop several MP3 audio files from iTunes and the Finder directly into the interface, which displays track information like artist and title in the playback screen, making custom playlist creation and management easy work. What you'll love about this app is that during playback tracks appear and scroll against a timeline, an excellent feature for managing the length of your playlist. Once your playlist is ready, you can save it for recall later, so you don't have to worry about sorting through audio files again. To test the application, we dropped in several MP3 audio files from our iTunes library. We were able to easily arrange our files by moving them horizontally and then determining the start position for each song. Using the upper triangles we were able to define song in and out points and using the lower triangles we were able to set song fade-ins and fade-outs. The playback was crisp and of high quality. One feature that we missed, though, was built-in equalizer controls for fine-tuning the sound. But you can't have it all.

presetDj for Mac will impress you with its functionality and stability. If you have a large collection of audio files and are looking for an intuitive way to create playlists without being encumbered by hardware and software limitations, then this audio manager is just what you need. It's fast, easy to use, and bug-free.
