DJ ProMixer NB Netbook is an application designed for netbooks to allow users to mix their own music straight from their mobile devices. This application has many strong points; however, it features a cluttered interface, as well as a lack of flexibility.
Those that are familiar with DJ mixing applications might recognize names like CrossDJ, Traktor Pro, Virtual DJ, or even Mixxx. DJ ProMixer NB Netbook competes well with popular titles such as these, but it is also designed with the idea of being a light application that is not heavy on resource usage. After opening the program, you will notice that it features two decks for mixing, a central mixer area, a sampler, and a plethora of effects for getting your track exactly the way you want it.
The interface features the mixing desk along the top of the screen, and the library sits below it. There, you can find playlists, as well as an explorer for locating files on your hard disk. Currently, DJ ProMixer NB Netbook does not support devices that run iOS. You might quickly find that there is nothing to write home about when it comes to the file explorer. The library is situated in a way where browsing your entire computer's file system is an annoyance.
If you can manage to find your tracks, actually importing them to the program is a cinch. The program can intelligently determine the BPM of your music, and the estimate is often quite accurate. The functionality of the program is vast, and there is extensive support for keyboard controls. For such a featured program, it can be somewhat difficult to use DJ ProMixer on a netbook screen. The buttons and overall features can be hard to navigate due to the attempt at cramming so much into a small resolution.
Overall, DJ ProMixer is a great download for those who want a free mixing program to take on the go with them via their netbooks.
