    Default What DJ software solutions are available?

    So,

    Searched the forums, didn't find what i needed. I'm trying to get a list of all DJ software that's available to help out a friend to decide what would be best for him. This is what I have so far:

    DJ Programs
    Traktor (1.x-3.x, Pro)
    Virtual DJ (Home Ed.)
    MixVibes (Home Ed.)
    Deckadance (Home Ed.)

    DVS Programs
    Traktor (Scratch, Scratch Pro)
    Traktor (2.6-3.2) (FSOpen)
    Virtual DJ (Pro Ed.)
    Deckadance (Club Ed.) (FSOpen)
    Serato Scratch Live
    DJDecks (FSOpen)
    MixVibes (Producer, Cross)
    Torq
    PCDJ (Dex) (FSOpen)
    Mixxx (FSOpen)

    VST Plugin
    Deckadance
    Ms. Pinky IWS

    Does anyone have anything to add to the list? Mind you I use Traktor Scratch Pro, learning to route it through Ableton like Bento does. But I'm trying to be very nonbiased with my advice, because what's sh*t for me might be amazing for him.

    I know, I know.. I also didn't include Reason, which he might be using. I was mainly trying to list specific programs that are made for DJing, not that Ableton isn't awesome. As my post said, I'm learning to use it myself at the moment.

    Well, difference between Reason and Ableton is, that you can actually (mis)use Ableton to DJ as a standalone DJ software app.

    Haven't seen anyone trying to do that with Reason tbh.

    A friend of mine runs reason while spinning and only really fires it off when she's running out of time on a track to cover for the next transition.

    Yeah D, but that's almost the same like making a real live loop to fill for you when running out of time?

    Still not a standalone DJ app if you ask me?
