Computer DJing programs

22-03-2004, 10:08
Does anybody know the names of any easy-to-use computer DJing programs? All I'm after is a gizmo that would allow me to put a given instrumental with a given accapella (maybe having sped one up or slowed the other down) and possibly add the odd effect here and there. I don't necessarily care if the end result sounds hideous - by no means am I after professional-quality sound, but if it sounds vaguely presentable in the end analysis, even better. An ability to handle both MP3 and WAV files would be great, unless free MP3/WAV converters exist.
If there are downloadable programs out there which do this, I'll be ecstatic.

As per normal, telegrammed answers'd be handy.

I recommend "ACID"


Thats what its called.

Im sure you can find it on Kazaa, or some similar p2p program.
Ive used it on a couple of songs ive written,and its pretty good.'
Takes a bit to get used to..but you can really do quite a bit with it.

I used to use fruity loops quite frequently, its pretty good though complex.

ACID, Ejay, MMStudio...

Oh, and DBPowerAmp is a free converter/CD ripper. Have fun.

I downloaded what appears to be the only version of ACID which doesn't require money to change hands (I have none), but it refuses to let me monkey around with tracks.

Oh, apparently FinalScratch is rather good. Good enough for pro DJs to use (Josh Wink was promoting it on Channel 4 here). I've a feeling it might be expensive though, which was why I didn't mention it.
