Tema: POLL: "What other DJ/mixing software do you use?" - Page: 1
Do you use any other DJ software, and what do you like more in these other softs than in AtomixMP3 (=why do you still use them?).
Maybe you can also write what you like more in Atomix than in the other packages...

I have a bar/pub and i decided to go digital, afther i ript all my cd's i searched for software that was easy too juse for everbody that works for me.
So i bought Vdj2, well let's say that the sound was oke and the dynamics where perfect (every mp3 played on the same quality).
But the layout sucks bigtime, so it was hard to search for songs or make a playlist etc.
So i bought Atomix 1.12, and this was a big step forward, the search was oke and the record case looked good so atomixmp3 had a good layout but it was impossible to juse it like a sort of juke-box and the dynamics sucked bigtime!!
But my god when i jused it for live mixing people thought GODDAME THAT BOY CAN BEATMIX ;-)) so i jused it for live mixing.
Then i say pcdj with the Newmark controller, i looked at the specs. and this is what i wanted, the bleu version had a option that would play every mp3 at the same volume and there whas a easy search option you could make playlist's and you could do that all with the controller (exapt the search) then i had it at home and...... my god i had to tag all off my files :-(, And again there was too much difference in my mp3's volume and sound (again no Dynamics).
So i solded the controller and software it was too much work and it didn't played the mp3's right. (but the controller kicked ass)
Than i found a program that's goes by the name Otsjuke i downloaded the demo, and o my god it sucked bigtime but the Dynamic processor is the best!!!, but again no luck :-(
So now i rent a digital music-system for like 100 euro's a month and i juse atomix for live mixing.
There is a program by the name bpm www.mp3dj.nl and this has it almost they have Dynamic, like 5 different hardware controllers and a good recordcase (layout) but no autobeat mixing :-( and it's too much money for me )
so ill be waiting for Atomix to perfectionise there software, before i can use it all round.

The only two things that I really liked about mixvibes are:
- Support for up to 16 channels (Atomix can really use another channel .... but I understand that it would be way too complex to implement and would make the interface way more confusing)
- Needs very little hardware requirements (but thats not really an issue ?)
- Had very low latency actions, meaning when you performed a function, it would respond instantl (i.e: Cue, loop, play/pause functions, etc)
Mixvibes now has their 4.0 version out which is much improved, but STILL not as amazing as atomix. It now incorporates a VERY bad curve display (which was stolen from atomix ?) where you can't even nudge the curves to fast forward or go back. It is also alot more expensive than atomix and future updates are NOT free.
I have seen people compare mixvibes to atomix, both had their ups and downs, but now that 2.1 is coming soon, it will be clear who the market leader is.

I tried to use Atomix and it was too toyish for me.

Yes Dj'ing is about mixing the music yourself but why not use technology to give you a helping hand !!! I've been in the business 20 years+ and when i started CD's let alone MP3's were just a distant dream...
Also it a dam sight easier walkin into the club with a laptop and external hard drive in ya bag... Try doing that with a few thousand 12" vinyls....
You can't dis-invent the wheel so look forward not back
This is the future and Atomix is right out there in front...
2.1 is due out this week and i think you'll all be surprised in the advances made in the short time since V2 came out...
Its looking and sounding superb. I can't say anymore than that.
The team have, I'm sure been workin very hard and when you consider the upgrades are free !!! Why are there so many moaners out there !!! Give these guys encouragement to push the boundries and before you know it we will be discussing 2.2 not 2.1.
I have tried (bought ! not demo'd) just about all of the software on the market and nothing really touches Atomix..

We've had this discussion only about a few thousand times before about mp3 vs. CD/Vinyl . To me with formats such as MP3 and CD ... Vinyl seems so primitive !!!
Mensajes Mon 18 Mar 02 @ 5:34 pm
In the end,I suppose it's a personal choice. I DJ's straight for 9 hours with PCDJ and it never failed.
Mensajes Mon 18 Mar 02 @ 6:08 pm
And talkin about dead air...Does anyone remember Vinyl....It was noisy, crackled,jumped and clicked more times than i care to remember and occasionly stuck all together !!!!
And what did we do in these situations !!! improvise !!! thats wot live DJ'ing is all about well at least it used to be !!!!
Happy mixing all

I've tried Traktor in the past and have been very disappointed. If there is a new version out or soon to be released I will of course give it a fair trial. I do not hold out much hope, however.
PCDJ Red is just plain bad. I do not need to say more.
So, now you know.
