DJ ProMixer NB Netbook is a netbook optimized app for mixing your digital music. While it's not a bad DJing app, it's not as flexible as Mixxx and its cluttered interface is beaten hands down by CrossDJ.
Does DJ ProMixer stand out from the crowd?
There are lots of mixing apps for budding DJs, from high end programs like Traktor Pro and Virtual DJ to the open source Mixxx and other free options like CrossDJ. DJ ProMixer NB Netbook is designed to be lightweight enough to run smoothly on netbooks, and it does seem to be fairly light on resources. It offers a two-deck mixing interface, with a central mixer, effects and sampler console. Under the mixing desk is the library, split into DJ ProMixer NB Netbook saved playlists, and an explorer for your Netbook's hard drives. There is no support for iOS devices. The explorer isn't great - Traktor's system of allowing you to open your iTunes library is much simpler, for example. Searching through your Windows folder tree is a pain.Once you've found your music, loading tracks into the mixing desk is simple. BPMs are automatically calculated, and generally quite good. There are plenty of functions, and a switch to activate well mapped keyboard controls. despite its name, DJ ProMixer NB Netbook doesn't look great on a small screen. The interface is detailed with lots of small buttons that simply aren't ideal for netbook monitors.'
