Talk about DJ mixer, most people may think of the traditional setup of the "two turntables and a microphone". But nowadays, as you know, we "digital" everything including DJ mixer. DJ Software is used in almost every music festival or show. Though DJ equipment and DJ gear are the most vital, great DJ software is also a plus. Only when you keep the software and the hardware at the same level, can you create better mixing.

So, today we will give you a quick look at the 5 most well-known and well-received DJ software in the market. If you are interested, read the below introduction, look them up, and compare them carefully. I am sure you will make your final decision among them.

No.1 serato DJ


Serato is a brand from New Zealand. There's a slogan in Serato DJ's official website: the world's best DJ software. Serato DJ is confident enough to the No.1 because they have the most user groups, best reliability, and lowest latency. You can use Seroto DJ Lite for free as a beginner. Then, Serato DJ Pro will be your best choice when you become a pro. Serato DJ Pro is sold at $129 for the full version and you can also register for a monthly subscription at 9.99$.

No.2 Native Instruments Traktor

Native Instruments has a wide range of product line, offering more choices to meet the needs of different users. Traktor Pro 3 is the leading one for DJ software.

It features easy-to-use and intuitive. You can get Virtual DJ for the full version at $99, which is the same price as Traktor Pro 3. A $19 monthly subscription fee is higher than Serato DJ Pro's though.
