DJ Mix Master was developed by Pianosoft and is one of the top DJ mixing software products. the company was established in 2000 as a start-up venture, selling products to music teachers. Since that time, they have blossomed into an international software publisher, with more than 30 products in their repertoire.
The company says that they strive to develop entertaining, simple, educational and easy-to-use software programs, with an emphasis on providing solutions for audio software clients.
DJ Mix Master comes with some nice mixing and effect features, such as the ability to independently transpose the music’s tempo, create and mix songs via several cue points and insert vocal effects like raps and scats. This DJ mixing software is designed to be straightforward and intuitive. It has a one deck interface with the ability to look for audio files and create custom playlists.

This DJ mixing software has some nice performance features; however, the selection could be considered slim by many experienced DJs. The single player rudimentary interface is user friendly and easy to understand. The company has developed this software to ensure that DJs will always know exactly where they are in terms of what song is currently playing and what song is up next.
The many different DJs using this software are able to step away from the consol for a while and let the automatic mixing feature take over. It allows for mood enhancing playback via preloaded sounds, samples or imported files. You can use the program to construct a register of audio files present and available on your PC, add one songs or an entire folder of tunes and make, arrange and save custom playlists.
The software program appears to be a fairly decent product with a number of interesting, exciting and convenient features, but the company’s website does a poor job of getting that message to their potential customers. The site does not have many of the customer service and technical support options that are readily available on many of the other sites we reviewed for our rankings.
DJ Mix Master is one of the most affordable DJ mixing software products listed in our rankings. It has many of the performance features of some of the higher ranked programs, such as automatic beat mixing, the ability to create custom playlists and multiple cue points, but its lack of customer service and technical support options cannot be overstated. Perhaps this is a case that can best be described with an old, well-worn cliché: You get what you pay for.
