Atomix Virtual Dj

21 February 2007 - 06:02 PM

Have any of you guys tried using Atomix Virtual DJ yet ??

If so how do you rate it against other DDJ software ?

I've been running off it now for three years but I am wondering whether there is anything else on the market that out performs it in a live performance enviroment, I've dabbled with 'Mixmeister Fusion' which is ok if you are going to sit down for hours before the gig and pre structure youre set, and I've tried PCDJ which for me was a little on the primative side.

Any Comments or advice ??

Hello Everyone !!,

My name is Matt I'm 33 and I just registered with the forum a few hours ago having come across it whilst looking for advice, hints and tips etc on the net with respect to DJ'ing.

It certainly seems I have come to the right place !, having browsed through the site I have found what I was looking for without even having to post !!

So a quick intro...

I kind of 'stumbled' into DJ'ing three years back now having tried to make it as a musician and failed as age got the better of me and the dream began to fade !!!, so still wanting to be involved with music I got myself hooked up with a local internet radio station that at the time was in the process of applying for a full FM license. This opportunity arose as friend of mine who is an experienced DJ from my local club got the offer of a show on the station and initially asked if I would like to accompany him as his producer due to the fact i have always been a bit of a computer 'whiz' (allegedly).
Before long I was co-hosting the show as well as playing and mixing the music all of which were mp3's using Atomix VDJ or occassionally SAM 3 .

As the audience figures grew we decided to 'take the show on the road' so I invested in a Rig and off we went.

To cut a long story short (which it was going to turn into!), the station never got its license and went bust, I now have four rigs which are out roughly two to three times a week with myself and three other DJ's that now work for me including my friend I was 'producing' for.

We work from Chesterfield in Derbyshire, which is sadly in an area of high unemployment so we are kinda restricted on what we can charge, but we all have other jobs during the day so it's all good !.

Looking forward to getting involved with the forum and sourcing some sound advice from the fountain of knowledge that is available here.

Cheers
