Cross-DJ is an application by MixVibes, who specializes in DJ software. The software lets you playback two tracks as any DJ’s setup would, but you can see the waveforms, which is always nice to someone mixing two tracks, it makes it much easier to set loop points and stop music precisely at the point you want to. That said, it’s not something you will learn in a day. Still, if you already have a laptop, the software is $50. It’s a little above our amateur heads, but those wanting to learn the craft or who already enjoy the turntables can give it a shot.
They also offer a software remote, the U-Mix Remote. While it may not have the tactile feedback of the hardware turntables (which they do offer, by the way) it’s a cheaper solution if you already have an iPad. Though we think they could bring in a lot of people by offering the iPad app free alongside the Cross-DJ software, if at least for a short promotional period. Together, people are looking at a total of just over $60. That’s fair considering the software, but giving them the iPad app may be enough to pull some people in.
