I use otsav have used it for quite a few years now and still love the prog.. But it all depends what you want to do with your software. I am a party DJ and don't mix all that much I also use my set up for playin between band sets and for radio roadshows so ots suits me down to the ground. But if your a serious mix DJ then its probably not the best on the market for that and would suggest you look at traktor.

I have used Traktor 3 right from the start of my DJ days, and still use it today....for the last month or so I have also hooked up a Behringer BCD3000 to it.....previously used to do everything with a mouse.......and now I wonder how I managed without the BCD....makes things so much easier.

I did go through a period of trying SAM DJ, PCDJ, Ots, Virtual DJ and just about every other DJ software you can think of, although I was happy with Traktor I just wondered if thier was somthing else out their that suited me better......their wasnt so I went back to Traktor 3.

I've been using Traktor for the last 3-4 yrs now and I have to a admit I've hardly used most of it's functions while out working.

The only time I put it to full use is when I feel like making my own mixes, loops and jingles which I then save to use out, and because of the way you can do this you don't have to break any copyright laws :)

Ohh and as for the PCDJ Karaoke plug-in it's not that good. If you want a good Karaoke software then look to Tricerasoft for a selection, there's something there for everyone.

Serato scratch live and it is the dogs nuts of DJ Programs i have to say (and i have used most of them pcdj red and fx, traktor etc). Its so easy to use and full of great stuff. Also love the fact it still looks like your DJ'ing "properly" tongue.gif as you can control it with CD's or Vinyl.

PCDJ Red VRM i have been using it now for 8 months or so, and i have never made a better choice, had a few issues to start with but on the whole they got sorted with a little help from people on forums.

Just got the DAC 3 this weekend and used it last night, quality piece of kit,

So my advice is pretty obvious

Up until today I have been using Kramware Kra mixer software. It has been ok but had basic functions on it.

I have today found some new software called Beatport Sync which is great so far !!
Even beatmixes for you if you want it, or just mixes the next song in so this would be great for toilet breaks for me ! still prefer to use CD's though.




Cheers

Sam here... Pretty much the same as Nik.
Traditional style (big on Microphone presentation) kind of Dj.
Have used OTSDJ for a number of years and serves me well, no beat mixing needed..
