DJs don’t need expensive decks now that Mixxx offers a competitive computer-based alternative. The Liquidsoap programming language provides a fully automated approach to generating flexible streams.
Users of Mixxx software can make their dance floor audience happy with the virtual DJ deck that the free project offers. But keeping a crowd happy on the dance floor means doing more than just playing loud music; you have to set up the right track on the deck at the right time, cross-fading it nicely with the previous track without interrupting the groove. To do this perfectly, you have to match the beats of the two tracks.
