djDecks is the ultimate tool for computer mixing and dj-ing. djDecks is a computer mixing program for both beginning and professional dj's. Mix your mp3, ogg, wma and wav files easily on any configuration.
djDecks exists of two decks on which you can play your mp3, wav or ogg files, a center mixer panel and a song browser.
If necessary, a third player is available, but is not shown by default.
Each player has a volume and speed control, as well as an effects panel.
The mixer (the center window) connects the two decks with a cross-fader with four different slide curves and an automatic slide with configurable speed.
On this main window some other information can be displayed as well such as master VU, count-down to next event in each song, spectrum analyser, selected slide curve.
Once you have set the bpm (beats per minute) for your songs, it's easy to synchronize beats and get started mixing.
Selecting songs is also very easy with the filebrowser/playlist that reads ID3v1 and ID3v2 tags and presents the songs in the format you want.
All information for each song is saved using ID3v2 tags, which means all information you need for the song is stored. (BPM, title, artist, length, cuepoints, etc
You get up to three decks to load your songs in.
Each deck has a pitch and volume controls, a stereo VU-meter, you can see position, cue and song information.
You can pre-listen the song using headphones through the rear-out of your 3d-soundcard, with a second sound card or by splitting left and right channels.
djDecks has a very advanced bpm detection that will help you synchronizing your songs.
It's very easy to set a cue-point and start your song exactly when you want it at the position you want.
djDecks offers a high-quality three-band equalizer per player, as well as other effects such as echo, looping, flanger and gapper.
The equalizer's frequencies can be changed on the fly to create sweeping cut-off effects.
To select your songs you can use the playlist and file browser. It loads all the id3 tags and shows the songs found based on id3 tags so you get the information displayed the way you want it, instead of based on how the file is named.
