    "Great free DJ software"

    October 10, 2010  |   By denmagic


    Free, easy to use. Great layout and changeable skins.


    There is a slight but noticeable audio glitch when loading tracks to either channel while the other is in play. The glitch may be a fraction of a second long but noticeable.


    I was sorely disappointed when I came across the audio glitch when adding tracks to the other channel. This is the only failure I can see in what is a first class free dj software.

    Once they get that fixed I'd back this a million percent!

    Try raising your latency. To > Preferences > Sound Hardware > Latency. Latency determines how fast the music is effected by the software or hardware controls. A low latency means a fast reaction time but it also uses a lot of CPU in order to respond quickly to your adjustments. Some times the CPU can't keep up with processing the audio and reacting to input such as loading a new track. Try raising the latency to 10 ms or more I'd be willing to bet that your glitch will disappear.
