As one of the best-known DJ software, Virtual DJ is popular for its easy-to-use and favorable price. The full version - VirtualDJ Pro Infinity costs $299 and the monthly fee takes $19. Compare to Serato DJ or Traktor, VDJ is more of home-use DJ software. If you are beyond the "beginner level" but not yet a professional, Virtual DJ is the best choice to practice your DJ skill.
