    Default Traktor and serato destroyer

    Is mixxx upto the compertition. For all of you that dont know mixxx is an open source dj software for mac pc and linux. I 1st tryied it out a couple of years ago and it really wasnt upto much. I installed the latest version 1.9 and hey its getting there. It has better midi mapping than serato not as good as traktor. works with any timecode and works very well. majour problem is that there is a digital sound whilst scratching. Next is the themes dont fit my screen properly this wouldnt be to bad an issue to sort out add support for 2 more decks a sample deck add 20 effects and video dj support and this could take over. Also hi res midi support. this would allow controllers like the stanton scs 1d to reach their full potentil

    Mixxx interests me, especially for the timecode support.

    Mixxx was around in 2004, and I haven't seen that much development for it since then. It has some serious issues that–I think–are going to prevent it from taking over.

    It's a really cool idea, and I'd love to see it take off, but I just don't think it's going to happen…certainly not any time soon.

    when the rep came on promoting the new release, i did actually check it out again. looked good. it was just unusable to me not being able to go fullscreen with it. shame really.

    To OP, i'm sure you have good intentions but i've been waiting for the "next big open source thing" since 1996. Stopped waiting around 2001.
    open source will never be competitive with commercial, period.
