Linux user? check out IDJC
« on: September 20, 2011, 09:02:53 PM »
I have become an official fan of IDJC (Internet DJ Console)

Its free (and in the debian library for all linux Ubuntu users)

~Whats great about this program?~
- fully featured software with two decks, good crossfading, and all the same decent automation features you would look for in broadcasting software.

- Has lots of easy to add effects.

-  Includes the ability to use Jamin (free as well) as a three band processor for your overprocessing needs up to 40khz.

~The Bad~

- Has a somewhat difficult interface to initially set up.

~The shades of grey~

If your a linux user, you have heard of PulseAudio.  IDJC has NOTHING to do with that.  So the first thing you should be thinking is "How do I get sound input?"  Its through the use of a JACK audio server.  IDJC uses the JACK program like virtual cables, and while this was a brilliant move to ensure you get the capture device you want for your live show, it also makes it confusing at times with constant switchovers.

Once you get the hang of JACK interface, IDJC will wow you with all the potential it offers. This program deserves recommendation on my part.
