Free DJ Software: Create Your Own Music Remixes

Why not have some fun by using free DJ software to remix your MP3 music library

Mixing Digital Music With Free DJ Software

If you fancy being the next top DJ, or just want to have a little fun mixing up your music library then the best way to get started is to use a free DJ software program. If you decide to take this art form up as a serious hobby / job in the future, then you can always upgrade to a paid-for option. These tend to have a lot more advanced features.

With this type of music editing tool, you can use your existing digital music files to produce unique remixes – most free DJ software also enables you to record your musical mixes to a separate digital audio file, such as an MP3.

The following free DJ software programs have good basic functionality and are easy to get to grips with if you’re just starting out; they also have some professional features too. The main thing is to have fun and practice until you're mixing like a pro!


Mixxx is an open source multi-platform DJ software application which is available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux operating systems. Whether you’re an amateur or professional DJ, Mixxx has a good set of features for creating music even in live sessions.

You don’t need any extra hardware to use this DJ program, but Mixxx does support Midi control if you have any external hardware – there's also vinyl control too.

Mixxx has a range of real-time effects and you can also record your creations -- in WAV, OGG Vorbis, or optional MP3 format.

Overall, if you're looking for a free DJ tool, Mixxx is a feature-rich program and therefore worth a serious look.

Kramixer is a free DJ software program that runs on most versions of Windows. It has a very impressive (and colorful) interface, but that fortunately doesn’t detract from the program’s usability.

By default, the program runs in optimized mode which is essentially a core set of features that minimizes the chance of any sound incompatibility problems. This free DJ software program has a good selection of real-time effects such as echo, reverb, low pass, and even a robotic effect that’s great with vocals. Incidentally, to get the maximum out of Kramixer, you’ll need to switch to the full-featured mode which turns on all these available effects.

Looping is also possible and you can set two loop positions on every track / channel. It’s also possible to record your mixes with Kramixer -- files are saved as MP3s.

 Overall, a great free DJ program with plenty of features to keep you going.
