    I'm familiar with Traktor and Deckadance. I'm used to deal with the latter mostly and it's quite good I'd say.

    When I'm too baked to be able to crack on with the vinyl I enjoy a dabble with VDJ. It's never crashed on me and is very simple to use. It's the Gary Neville of DJ software; ya know, it just does its job. It doesn't excel and doesn't mess up :)

    VirtualDJ is a good quick fix, but it's a real toy.

    VDJ works well with dubstep but it cant do dnb or hiphop well imo

    as ashamed as i am to admit it my mixes on my soundcloud are with vdj. i will say though that i refuse to use the autocue button (blurgh) and i dont bother using the visual waveform to beatmatch. thats just cheating. i cant record from my decks as the cable to connect to my pc got skanked at a club and my needles are waaay too shocking to be recording with. roll on my bday for new ones so i can get recording :D

    I use vinyl. But, I sometimes use Traktor Pro. Can't recommend it enough :)

    Anyone bringing the clever retort of "GET DECKZ LOLLERS UR NOT A REAL DJ" can get in the fiery pit, you're not being useful.

    Torq isn't that bad as long as you are using the timecodes, using a midi controller for the whole thing sounds shit - the EQ curve is far to sharp, but all is good if you've got the stuff to connect your own mixer. Currently testing Mixxx myself, it's not all the bad so far.

    I think its just the likes of Dj Cammy and all that crap that gave Mixing software a bad name.

    Personally i only like to use Serato Scratch live cos it to runs with my Rane mixer so can work with vinyl and mp3 on the fly.
    Pressing beatmatch and play isnt the way to go when mixing.
