Read the review of CuteDJ - a DJ mixing software that attempts to provides a great alternative to the expensive DJ equipment and might help you acquire the skills of a pro DJ by starting out just from your home. Know what is that you will find highly useful in this software and also how you can get started with it.

To find a professional quality DJ software for free which can do mixing of audio and video tracks along with recording of the mix is quite difficult. Nobody wants to spend money on a software before actually testing out its quality and CuteDJ let's you to just want for whole 30 days before you actually make the decision of purchase. I tried out this software and my short review is that it is a real pro software with all the features you expect out of such a software. It works elegantly which extreme smoothness and it definitely worth every penny you will spend to buy it. Before I start off with the detailed review let me tell you that this is available for both Windows and Mac. Now let's proceed -

If you are already into this business then you would know that no matter how good a taste you have in music or how much effort or hardwork you put into it, without the right hardware you are not going to reach anywhere. But with software like CuteDJ you easily remove that roadblock and get all the right equipments right on your computer to make music they way you want it to be.

Features


Installation is a breeze at less than 10 MB and requires almost the same RAM on your computer in standby. You can make DJ mixes, karaoke or even videos. You can do pitch adjustments, beat matching, transitions and more with this. It has code for auto-beat and auto-tempo to match the beats of two songs and align them. Just a press of button does the task. To someone who is using such a software for the first time the interface might look a little cramped, but believe me, most other software are even worse off and with a little practice you would be easily able to get around the interface of CuteDJ.

As soon as you launch CuteDJ you are asked to import the files or folder you want to play with CuteDJ. It even has a iTunes intergration which makes importing tracks a real breeze. It supports various formats like mp3, m4a, wma, aac, ogg, wav, flac, aiff and video m4v, mpeg, avi, flv, mp4, mov, mkv, wmv and karaoke files cdg+mp3, cdg zip, etc. It has an inbuilt EQ and crossfader control which means you don't even need hardware for that. However, if you do decide to take this to the next level by getting some hardware then it has support for over 55 hardware controllers. You can also map MIDI controller to it easily with the easy learn mode or you can just choose to import the presets.

Review


CuteDJ console
For novice users there is the auto-mix mode which will help you learn the basics of mixing and will also give you an idea about CuteDJ's capabilities. If you have experience of mixing as a DJ then you would of course prefer to go for the manual mode. Regardless, the mix output can be saved to a AIFF file format to be used or edited later. No other format is supported for now.

The interface is divided into 3 main parts, first for audio, next for video and third for karaoke session. Each has required options in the particular area. You can import practically an unlimited number of tracks and shuffle or mix them as you wish.

As you can see in the image, CuteDJ shows both the beat grid as well as the waveform display which is very useful in syncing the beat and tempo of 2 audio tracks. There are a lot of audio effects you add to your playlist. Be it disk vinyl scratching, echo, reverse playback or playing an overtrack, you have a bucket load of options.

To help you get started with CuteDJ (this is for professionals too) you should begin with the Learn Mode which will give you small pop ups telling you shortcuts, suggesting features and tools that can help you improve your mixing skills. This software is an ideal tool for those who are looking to venture into DJ field without investing into the expensive hardware that is usually required for it.
