PROS / MixMeister looks good for beginners and intermediate DJs.
CONS / The downside is that it is missing many of the features found in other DJ software.
VERDICT / MixMeister is an entry level DJ program. If you are looking for more performance features, you may want to look somewhere else.
The MixMiester Express 7 DJ mixing software allows you to develop and maintain high-quality, professional music mixing quickly and easily. It also gives you the power to construct original mixes in just a few minutes and then distribute them by exporting them to a CD, iPod, or uploading them directly to the Internet.
It should come as no surprise that what a DJ aspires toward is unnoticeable and flawless transitions between tracks. To help you in this regard, this software program has a feature called automatic beat-mixing, which can be initiated with one click of the mouse. It is also on friendly terms with iTunes, so you can import your music library and have Express 7 automatically categorize it for you.
Some of the input and output features integrated into this DJ mixing software include a non-destructive editing component so that your original files remain intact, methods to display and edit ID3 tags, such as artist, album, BPM, genre and title. You also have the ability to burn your music mixes onto a CD without having to use any other software program, export and play your original mix tunes on most if not all portable audio systems and effortlessly copy your mix with smooth transitions between tunes.
Additionally, MixMeister Express 7 supports audio formats such as WAV, WMA, AIF, M4A and MP3. It allows you to mix up to four stereo tracks and adjust the tempo according to your whim or the atmosphere of your venue.
What impressed us most about this company was their customer service and technical support options. Through their dedicated support page, you can check out some tips and tutorials from other users, stop in at the user forums via their community site and read their return and refund policy.
They provide a free trial version of their software so that you can give the product a first-hand evaluation before you decide to purchase it. Also, on the support page are direct links to their Frequently Asked Questions listings and to their technical support request forms, which allow you to fill out a detailed online questionnaire and then send it directly to their support staff.
Overall, MixMeister Express 7 DJ mixing software makes the impression of a good program for beginner and intermediate DJs due to its simple and straightforward interface; however, veteran amateur DJs might see it as overly simple and want more technical tools. The company’s service and support options are exceptional and the fact that the software is compatible with both Mac and PC is a definite plus.
