DJ'ing and production software
« on: February 01, 2010, 04:19:26 pm »
I know we have a few people here that are into this stuff, so I figured I would start a general discussion area where we could just chat about it. Here are most of the programs I use:

Mixed in Key: Great tool for harmonic mixing, and it helps sets flow very smoothly together. Probably the best piece of mixing related software I have. Costs about 60 dollars though, worth every penny.

MixMeister BPM Analyzer: While i like MiK for its harmonic stuff, I dont like the way it puts the BPM of a song in. MM BPM does it great and fast. And its free :D

Ableton Live 7&8: I keep both programs around because i HATE the track warping in 8, and i find 7's is much more user friendly, but I do all my production in 8. Its pricey for sure, but if you get in good with a local recording studio they might be willing to help you out and give you one of their copies.

Nexus 2.2: Great sound libraries, and with its expansions there are tons of ways to use this program. Its not a synth though, so dont expect it to behave like one. I use it for kick samples and such. Most expensive software i have, with a price tag around $2000.

Sylenth: A great synth, and its my second favorite. Tons of stuff you can do with it, and is a very versatile tool.

Omnisphere: Easily my favorite program, but its a monster on hard drive space if you add to it and keep every sample you can find. Mines currently taking up about 30 Gigs.

What are some programs you use?

I have NOTHING, unfortunately, but would love to learn, because it's going to be essential that he does.  Maybe in a few years when I'm on my own, making the money to pay it.

The only DJ'ing software I've ever used is scratch live.  Turns your existing turntables into sensors the computer can use to match your "scratching" with music stored on a computer.  So instead of switching CDs or Records out all the time you just select a track on your computer and the turntable will act like its playing it.

I'm a big fan of Traktor 3 (for live stuff) and Cubase 5 (for music production). Both are very well designed, powerful and easy to use software, even for people who never used anything like them. They work like a charm on my Mac :D
