Beatforce is a computer dj-ing system with 2 players,
a mixer with manual and auto-fade, a sampler and some more features.

The user interface and all widgets are designed from scratch and easily support theming and layout changes. Themes are written in XML. The user interface uses SDL as draw library. The widget library is a subproject of its own called SDLTk
To date BeatForce supports MP3, OGG and CDDA input. Due to the plugin concept of BeatForce new formats
can easily be added by simply writing a plugin.
The CDDA plugin also support CDDB queries to find title and artist of cd's which are currently playing. The song archive support multiple playlists, which can be changed by clicking on a tab. When closing beatforce the database will be stored as a XML file on the filesystem.

    • IPC layer to allow the mixer to control the play/pause/stop/etc of dbmix client programs.

Jay'O'Rama, aims to be useful Dj software to allow softmixing, beatmatching and professional live session. At the actual state, JOR is an OpenJ oriented pcm player. It could play also as  a jukebox.

The project has recently been redesigned and retasked. Now it is represented by a couple of subprojects: the Open Sound Engine, which is the audio engine (in old releases the audio engine was Alsaplayer,, and its interface.


Mixxx is designed for DJ'ing for both professional and semi-professional users. Mixxx was started in early 2001 as one of the first digital DJ systems. Today Mixxx includes many features common to digital DJ solutions, but also some very unique features: It is free, and runs on all major desktop operating systems. Futhermore Mixxx has a number of key features to help the DJ in the live mix: Beat estimation, parallel visual displays, and support for many DJ input controllers.

 MIxxx (vaya nombre }:) ), no me permitio hacer nada, ejecute el archivo que se genera en la instalacion (mixxx), pero se me congelo el modo grafico; (mi pc es una athlon duron de 1GHz con 256 en RAM y 40MB disco) :-P, esa fue mi unica experiencia con software para djs

 o sino por que no instalan wine y bajo esta instalan alguna aplicacion bajo guindows  para estos menesteres;

Los que he probado son el Mixxx y el DJPlay, la verdad chéveres y pude convencer a un tipo que sabe DJ's que me tenía cansado con sus "cracks" para el PCDJ y el BPM, etc, etc, etc...

Lo que me gustó fue saber que le intersaron y que ya los ha comenzado a usar en su DJ...

Me parecen buenos programas :) y los tengo en mi laptop que es una Dell Inspiron 2200 con sólo 256 de RAM, HDD de 30GB y un Intel Pentium M

Anímate a seguirle dando hasta hacerlo funcionar y evitar que se te congele el ambiente gráfico, en serio son buenos...

Otra cosa, también estoy usando el Plarpebu, un software para Karaoke, chévere por cierto; y aquí en el EcuaLUG Raza hizo el post indicando la dirección... "si la hubiera puesto cuando la necesitaba..." ;)
