    Default What DJ software do you use/own?

    The Traktor vs Serato thread left me curious, what else do people use here?

    Hooray, the poll worked this time, vote away!

    New Mixxx user over here. Running it with my launchpad at the moment but hoping I can get a dvs setup sometime soon (hopefully before the 1.11 release). Always been an ableton nut and I havn't been that much into mixing until now. Gotta say that between mixxx and the upcoming (hopefully this year) release of bitwig I'm really liking the idea of booting linux to my old laptop when the new one comes.

    Edit: I see now that ableton is on the poll. I guess it doesn't count for me anyway because I don't really use it for mixing

    Mix with Scratch Live, primarily as a digital crate (I think I may have used the loop button once to see how it worked). Three decks, a Rane Empath & Empath Rotary and SL3. Fingers crossed for a Vermona Action Filter III.

    Have Ableton Live Suite and Max4Live, which haven't seen much love. Expect to use it with the two iPads with Lemur installed and a Mackie Control Universal Pro (must...find...mojo).

    I DJ with Traktor and Live
    I think Traktor is essential for DJing from starting out until you start getting into more expressive performance; it can be remapped very easy, it's nice and modular, very attractive, and well supported by NI.
    Live only seems relevant as a DJ tool when you're using loops and layers, as in when you have stems or produce your own stuff. Otherwise, it is really handy for its effects (and M4L).

    I used to use Itch, which is an amazing piece of software and I prefer it physically to Traktor, but it's not expandable or customisable enough for me. Buying a Launchpad and switching to Traktor was the best decision I ever made as a DJ.

    I use Ableton for producing, and the occassional DJ set.

    I use DJ Decks for my DVS needs, and it is solid as a rock. Pretty sure that I'll be getting VDJ8 when it comes out...

    Very sure...
    DJ'ing: 2x1200MK2, DJM 850, Dicers, F1, Zomo MC-1000, Sony MDR-v700, i7 Win 10 HP Envy
    Production: Ableton Live 8 and a mouse, Sennheiser HD400, Sony VAIO
