Everything You Need, However You DJ
Drop a song onto a deck in Mixxx to start playing right away. Keep your eye on beats and cue points with a scratchable, scrolling waveform together with a whole-song overview waveform for quick seeking.
Pitch and Key Control
Change the tempo of songs without changing their pitch with keylock, or change the pitch without breaking sync so your songs play in harmony. Temporarily nudge the tempo faster or slower for manual beatmatching, with smooth changes in pitch just like vinyl.
Need to extend your mix while you bring in the next track? Instantly loop a 4, 8, or 16 beat segment with ease.
Engage master sync on your decks and they'll stay locked in time even if you change speed. Construct remixes on the fly with multiple tracks and loops without losing control.
Set hotcues to mark places in tracks. Remix and mash up tracks with accurate, rapid-fire hotcue triggering.
Beat Rolls and Censor
Play with rhythm by triggering short loops and reverse-playback effects. The track stays in time so you don't miss a beat.
Mark and activate cue points and loops exactly on beat every time.
Broad Format Support
Compatible with music files in lossless FLAC, WAV, and AIFF formats as well as lossy MP3, M4A/AAC, Ogg Vorbis, and Opus formats.
EQ and Crossfader Control
Choose between multiple equalizers and isolators with adjustable shelves. Crossfader curve control lets you deliver quick cuts or long, smooth crossfades.

Mixxx includes a number of recording and broadcasting features to help you share your mixes and spread your name.
