Free audio software for DJs

MP3-DJ is a free digital music mixer application that lets you make your own DJ sets of songs. MP3 DJ is used by beginner and professional disk jockeys to create soundtracks with advanced features like the fader, sampler, and recorder tools.

Digital DJ software is often convenient and filled with features that you can use to make sets of music. While MP3-DJ is a virtual turntable, the outdated program does not deliver an ideal user experience. Rekordbox and Virtual DJ are alternatives to MP3-DJ that are intuitive to use. Rekordbox is a step above the rest since the player can read vinyl.

Is MP3-DJ safe?

MP3-DJ is safe to use on either Android or Microsoft Windows PC devices. The platform is compatible with computers, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets. MP3 DJ is available on Windows 10 and later operating systems.

Is MP3-DJ free?

MP3-DJ is free for an unlimited amount of time within the terms of three conditions that are strict enough to make MP3-DJ not worth trying, since Rekordbox and VirtualDJ are free alternatives that deliver a full suite of music mixing features. You can only have a maximum number of 12 tracks in the music archive at a time with MP3 DJ.

Another restriction for the free version of MP3-DJ is the maximum bit rate of 64 kbps to rip CDs. Perhaps the biggest limitation that makes MP3-DJ not worth getting the free version of is that you cannot adjust the volume for the tracks that you play.

While a one-time payment can bypass the rules that are set on the free download, the platform still has a dated user interface that makes the user experience unappealing and unintuitive to use.

The set up for sets

MP3-DJ is nonetheless a feature-filled app for DJs. CDA, MP3, OGG, and WAV file types are compatible with MP3 DJ to let you import audio CDs or files. MP3 DJ is a converter that lets you convert MP3 and WAV file formats in either direction.

Two lists line the sides of the user interface to let you create playlists of songs to remix into each other with the help of a suite of tools. Soft fade is a staple function in a DJ toolbox that lets you gracefully combine the current and upcoming sounds from each playlist together. A sampler lets you sample your own creations into your mixes.

A recorder lets you record your sets while you DJ music. You can burn and export your playlists onto CDs, or rip MP3 files from CDs. MP3-DJ lets you import and save m3u tracklists. While MP3-DJ is not up to date compared to alternatives, smart features are included like Auto-DJ that makes playlists based on your criteria.

MP3 DJ features a voice overlay tool that lets you include vocals in your tracks with a microphone. Headphones are another accessory that you can use to listen to the active set and tracks at the same time. You can organize your music archive with print, search, and sort options. An ID3Tag editor lets you further manage your tracks by including images.

A BPM tool reads the beats per minute that can be written to the ID3Tag. A CDDB function automatically assigns artists and titles to tracks to make sure that your archive is accurately organized. A 10 band equalizer lets you manage and improve the sound of your sets.

Is MP3 DJ worth it?

While the volume adjuster lets you set a standard volume level for the MP3 tracks, the setting is only available in the paid version. Since the volume adjuster is a fundamental utility that you need to DJ music, the free version of MP3-DJ is not worth the download. Even the paid download is not optimal since optimized alternatives are available for free.

Virtual turntable that needs revamp

MP3-DJ delivers the standard DJ tools in the paid version, while the free edition lacks basic volume, track number, and bitrate settings. The overall appearance of the DJ mixer is lacking in style since the buttons and levers are bulky instead of streamlined. However, there are skins that let you change the color scheme in case you want to customize the UI.

What’s new?

The developer of MP3 DJ is Torsten Hoffmann, who delivered a genuine software solution to DJs with PCs. MP3-DJ has a future in case software updates are involved.
