I want to make my own mix and I have no idea where to start. I don't want to spend loads of money as it'll be just for myself to play at home, so nothing serious.
So what's the best value for money software and pretty simple to use?
Doesn't this belong in the 'Technical Discussion' section?
Personally I use the home version of VirtualDJ, it's free and easy to use.
Ooops! Yes I would of been better off there! Can a kind mod move this please?
I thought you had to pay for Virtual DJ?
As long as it is for non-commercial use, it's free.
I don't recall there being a free version years back either, anyhow moved
I used it for personal mixes myself years back, drive to Uni used to take me on average just shy of 40 mins so I made some mini mixes with, have recordings still on HD. Pretty easy for beginning as has visual cue for beats, BPM + key indicator so you're clued up as to type of track your mixing in. Give it a go and mess around for a while, you have the option to record in there and the inbuilt tutorials cover the essentials.
Anyway, it's great, I made two 60-80 minutes mixes and I still listen to them a lot. So Barking_Dagger, give it a go, it's more than worth it!
Man if you want to be a DJ, please get yourself a good setup. No point in sloppy mixing with some toy software.
My own equipment:
Pioneer CDJ-400 (x2)
I spent thousands of euros for them and I'm not saying you should do that because there can be cheaper options.
Damn I just realized I could have used that money for buying a goddamn NEW little car from shop if I didn't spend it for DJing. Though I haven't been regretting that so much because I've had so much good time with them.
If you pay for the shipping i can probably send the stuff. (bought in the UK)

well if you want to use a software forget Virtual and try Audacity (freeware).
It's a massive program to mix your tracks together.
