August 8th, 2008 – I’ve always liked the idea of software like Scratch Live. DJing using digital tracks you already own instead of lugging around records everywhere is a dream for the contemporary DJ. The only problem with such DJ solutions is that they are usually quite pricey. Often this is because they are tethered to proprietary hardware. Enter Mixxx. Mixxx is free open-source DJ software that “gives you everything to perform live mixes”. If you have money for external DJ hardware, the newest versions support using vinyl scratching tools, cd scratching hardware, and USB interfaces. Sounds like a great piece of kit.
