DJ With Your Computer
You can mix and scratch your music, including your iTunes Music Libraries using two large performance platters and a central mixer section with a crossfader, buttons and knobs. DISCOVER DJ is laid out in to carefully recreate the two-decks-and-a-mixer setup that professional DJs prefer. On screen, the MixVibes CROSS LE software is a virtual extension of the DISCOVER DJ hardware, with two decks. Just load your tracks to either Deck A or Deck B, and then control it, cueing up the start point, performing advanced transitions and even scratching.
Familiar, DJ-Friendly Controls
DISCOVER DJ has complete DJ controls such as pitching the music up and down so you can perfectly match the tempo or BPM between tracks and create seamless mixes. The system also has an automatic beat-matching feature that takes the guesswork out of this tricky piece of DJing. Bass and treble control enable you to shape your sound with ease. You can easily extend the mix by looping your favorite parts of their tracks. Yet, with all of this power and capabilities, DISCOVER DJ is easy enough for virtually anyone to learn on. You can even record, play back and share your performances thanks to recording capability.

I didn't have high expectations for this thing seeing its a $60 plastic mixer that has very little functionality on it so I was amazed when I was upset with my purchase. If this product actually worked I would say it would be a good toy for a child that you want to get into DJing or whatever, I'm not a parent, I don't know what you people do with your kids. But seeing how the product doesn't work with the software I'd avoid buying it.
Also, assuming that something is faulty on my end, (which I've searched high and low on the internet to figure out a solution) I'd also like to say that this device isn't that great. The 2 times that it did work there wasn't much to do with it. You could select music by scrolling with the mixer as oppose to pointing and clicking which would be a lot faster and you could try to mix in a song with the jog wheels but they don't work very well.
I definitely wouldn't recommend this to any "beginning djs" and I'm upset with the people who did. If anything you could buy this for a kid but make sure it works before you do.
I bought this control to get me from having to mix songs manually with the mouse. I love every bit of it. Bought an el cheapo sound card right here at Amazon where my headphones are plugged into and downloaded ASIO4ALL. Now I can cue songs in the headphones while i have this plugged into my laptop ---> amp -----> speakers.
Even a cave man should be able to figure this thing out. Mixing is easy, I especially like the Itunes integration. (One of the main reasons why this was the one i bought). It picked up all my playlists as though i was mixing directly from iTunes.
The "vinyls" are highly touch sensitive and songs literally stop even when my headphone cable touches them.
I used the LE CrossDJ software which got me going (included). I also donwloaded Mixxx which appears to also work well and is the only other free substitute to Cross I could find with mappings already built into the software but I have to say latency on Mixxx is higher than Cross in English, the software reacts a tad bit slower then LE when a command is issued from the controller. I guess thats more a preference thing.
On the whole, I like it and can see how starter wannbe DJs or even pros will get with this.
If you like DJ Hero, but wish you could decide what to mix, this gives you great entry-level turntables. If you actually get good at it, and you get a copy of a compatible Traktor program (the free DJ software it comes with will work, but is very limited), you could use this toy to do a live set at a party or even a bar. You could make $20 playing with your toy.
The turntables spin correctly, sync up to the tracks very well, the fader works perfectly, very smooth. The free software works fine. If you get Traktor you will have to program it through the midi setup. Takes a while but worth it.
The software mixer it comes with is, in my opinion, all right, but you'll only be able to do basic things.
What I recommend you do is get...
-Virtual DJ or Traktor for the software
(you'll have to buy em for the device to be recognized)
-ASIO4all driver (which gives you sound driver options)
-USB sound card (to listen to the backtrack while DJing. I got the Syba SD-CM-UAUD adapter)
-(optional) a usb hub for more usb slots
Once you get those, you'll have a blast. It takes a while to setup and learn what each driver does. But it's well worth it.
