Advantages: easy to use, real time scratching
Disadvantages: converts mp3s to its own file format, no BPM counting
This is one of the most fun pieces of software that i use at the moment. If you like music and have ever wanted to do a little bit more than just listen to it, this is a first step. DJing can look pretty easy, and with this software it actually can be quite soon. Once I got this, having never done anything like this before I got the hang of it pretty quickly. The software is easy to use and yet has a lot of functions. The arrangement is of two tracks and a crossfader or turntable in the middle. You can swap between the turntable and crossfader. The turntable responds immediately, there's no delay at all and you can record scratches for future use. The crossfader also works in real time, and this is probably the only program that can do both these things. There are also other functions such as the equalizer and dynamics proccessor but these aren't very interesting and work in the same way as in other programs.
The one fault is the lack of BPM counting, which means that I think this program comes second best in the DJ software market to BPM Studio which can do everything Otsjuke can, except scratching, but it also has BPM counting, a sampler in the middle and a better mixer and crossfader. If you want to get one of these programs then I'd recommend getting the demo to see what its like for yourself.
