INSTALLATION

Installation of the software is dead easy. Drag the application to your applications folder and you’re set. Now it will at first run in demo-mode, and you need to enter the serial to get full control over the software. At first I was checking where to
enter the serial but there is no menu addition for this? As the interface itself is very busy, I noticed very small red typing in the middle of the interface, where I was supposed to enter the serial. Funny place to validate a Mac application, and this should be set somewhere in the menu. Still this is how it is set right now. In the background many new folders are created for storing music creations etc.

INTERFACE

Wow, its an explosion of information to handle. Well for non dj’s like me then. Though I love music and am familiar to many of the used controls it still is a lot to swallow to be honest. it is LOADED !! Just check the features below to give you an idea of its capabilities. The image can be made active / enlarged,  in order to checkout all keys, knobs, controls, sliders etc.

DjMIXER PRO TEST

Now bear in mind that I am not a Dj, and have never worked with anything like this. So I started as a definite knob head using this software and was interested in how quickly one could master an application like this. Well its not easy to be fair.
I guess one needs to start with songs that share the same beat or bass rhythm. Then you need to known your songs and their most interesting parts for use.

I have to be fair and need to mention that I haven’t mastered all possible settings and loops, just played around with the AutoMix / MixNext and Cue loops. I am pleasantly surprised by the workmanship of this product, as it is an application for
beginners and professionals who earn their money entertaining people with their performance.

As many of us have their occasional party’s this DjMIXER Pro can make a huge difference in the level of entertainment of your guests. You can create some great personal mixes and show off your new skills. Beside the main interface an integrated
video playback is a bonus that could just make the difference.
It seems to have unlimited mixing capabilities and your karaoke night might become the best ever. The individual adjustments with the controls is simply done by point to the control en then swipe left or right to adjust the controls . You should not try to
move the controls by dragging round having our mouse pressed, as this will not work or be productive with the small controls in the interface.
