As computers become even faster and more affordable, the DJ world is quickly opening up to new digital perspectives. Thanks to the use of the newest software technology, DJs have the power to mix digital music formats like audio CDs and MP3s. With the DJ Line, Native Instruments develops software for the DJ of tomorrow. Audio tracks can be easily mixed live on a laptop or desktop computer, with unprecedented flexibility and intuitive operation. In design the DJ software applications resemble the classic DJ setup, with two decks and a mixer. But what is now possible with NI software far exceeds the limits of conventional turntables.
Due to outstanding BPM detection, MP3 and audio CD tracks can be automatically and precisely synchronized. This makes it possible not only to play two tracks simultaneously, but to set tempo accurate loops on the fly. You can shift the loop position forward or backward, or resize its length during playback, all while staying locked in the groove. Another innovation is the Mixfile format, which allows DJs to record, playback and overdub all mixing actions without replicating the audio material.
