VirtualDJ Home for Mac brings you all the tools you need to mix songs and record mixtapes using your digital music. Its performance and features will impress you.

Pros

Easy access to files: When you open VirtualDJ Home for Mac, you instantly have access to all your files, including those saved in iTunes or created in GarageBand. No searching through your hard drive or importing is necessary. Choosing tracks to work with is one of the most seamless features of this application. All popular file formats are supported, including MP3, MP4, WAV, WMA, AAC, and MPEG.

Intuitive basic functions: You can start playing with this application right away, without having to read a manual or watch a demo first. All your MP3 files are listed in one corner -- you just scroll through the titles and then drag and drop the ones you want to use. The volume, music balance, and scratch-effect controls are all very straightforward.

Many advanced features: Once you feel confident with the more basic functions of this application, there are many advanced features that can help you create professional-sounding remixes and mashups. Some of the functions we really liked include beat matching, looping, and adding effects.

Cons

Cluttered interface: Don't get us wrong, the VirtualDJ Home interface looks really cool, like a DJ's mixing table. However, when using only a keyboard and a mouse, all the knobs and slide controls and various bells and whistles are a bit overwhelming.

Bottom Line

If you love music and want to create your own remixes and mashups, VirtualDJ Home for Mac can be the perfect application for you. It might take some practice to create professional-sounding mixes, but you will be able to start learning how to DJ right away.

Developer's Description

Mix digital music or video, replacing your turntables and CD players.
VirtualDJ is a software used by DJs to replace their turntables and CD players, and use digital music instead of vinyl and CDs.It lets you "mix" your songs, by playing two or more tracks at the same time, adjust their relative speed so that their tempo will match, apply effects like loops etc, and crossfade from one side to the other. It also lets you scratch your songs, set and recall cues, and all the other regular features DJs expect to find to be able to mix.It will let you organize your collection of tracks and group them easily in a DJ-friendly way, using filter to find the hot songs, or find compatible bpm or key, access your previous playlists. And if you're missing a track, VirtualDJ will automatically find it on the Internet and stream it directly (*requires an additional subscription). And, using the millions of automatic reports we get every day from other VirtualDJ users around the world, it will give you meaningful advices on which songs other DJs consider to go well after what you just played.VirtualDJ can play not only audio tracks, but also video or karaoke, if you connect your computer to a projector or the club's screens.It comes with a plethora of effects, ranging from traditional flanger, echo, etc, to more modern "beat-aware" effects like beatgrid, slicer, loop-roll. And if you mix videos, you'll also find a lot of video effects and transitions to play with. Its built-in sampler will let you spice up your mixes with a broad range of drops and loops, or you can go creative and merge live performance and production by creating remixes on-the-fly by using the sampler like a sequencer.VirtualDJ is plug-and-play compatible with most of the DJ controllers that exist on the market. And if you want to change any of the default behavior, VirtualDJ has a powerful "VDJScript" language that will let you easily tweak any functions exactly to your liking. Same for the interface. If you want to change it, our website hosts hundreds of user-made interfaces to replace the default one, or you could easily create your own.VirtualDJ is used by tens of millions of people every day, ranging from bedroom DJs to international superstars. It is used to play live in clubs and big stadiums, at weddings, private parties, or just to train at home. And in addition to being used live, VirtualDJ can also be used to record mixtapes, podcast, or to broadcast to Internet radios.
