Editorial review


DJ equipment is quite pricey and most people don't want to buy it unless they are sure that DJ-ing is exactly what they want to do. A piece of Dj software will help you test the water and make up your mind on your future plans. E-mix Basic Edition would be a good start for those who are looking for an affordable and powerful test drive.

Overview


If you have ever used DJ software before, this particular program won't be much of a surprise for you. The interface is standard for this type of applications: there are two players featured with standard DJ options like tempo, BPM and cue position configurations. You can drag and drop the songs and watch the information about each one in the displays at the top of the screen.

Configurations and effects


The list of possible modifications is impressive: you can play with several types of controls, check a cross-fader, apply a number of ready-made effects and also add yours. There is an Autoplay mode that can do the job automatically, but note that the quality of automated mixes wouldn't be that cool.

Controls


The program can be controlled in 3 ways: using your keyboard, mouse, or an external MIDI controller. Although novice users usually don't have a MIDI controller, managing the process with keyboard and mouse is quite tricky and requires lightning-fast reaction. To be honest, mouse control is a pain, so using an external MIDI control is highly recommended.

Summary


E-mix Basic Edition is a good program for novice users but mouse control issue makes it less attractive. Plus, the interface may look cluttered and put some users off. In general, this program is pretty decent and helps you create nice mixes without buying costly physical equipment.
