Simple and Slick Sound

To open an audio file into PC DJ, you drag and drop it from a folder on your hard drive. The program also scans your computer for compatible files and will load all of them if you choose.

The interface (click for a picture) presents two panes side-by-side, one for each song you have queued to play. Controls on each pane allow you to change a song's volume and speed. A control in the middle of the mixer lets you "cross fade" or increase the volume of one track incrementally, as the volume automatically decreases on the other. Overall, the interface is slick and easy to use.

When you're ready to meet the public, the program connects you with free Internet-broadcasting services, including Live365.com, Shoutcast, and Ice Cast.

I have two small complaints. Clicking a button marked Email, which I guessed would allow me to send feedback, produced an error message. And when I clicked the Help button, the program tried to launch a nonexistent, readme text file. However, the program is intuitive and requires little hand-holding.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
