Mixxx is an open source DJ tool designed for both professional and amateur DJs. Wave, ogg and mp3 files can be mixed on the PC for use in live performances.

Filters, crossfader, and speed control are provided. Mixxx can sync the 2 streams automatically, using an algorithm to detect the beat.

Mixxx is designed with a strong focus on interaction. Mixxx is easy to use for novice and professional DJ's, also when going live. Integration with Prokyon3, a music management application, is now possible for efficient access to your music library.

Mixxx works with Jack or OSS, and can be controlled from the Graphical User Interface or from external controllers, including MIDI devices and joysticks. The software also has support for skins.

 Mixx 1.11.0
