    I use Ableton.. works on both Mac and PC and you can create perfect mixes without the use of any hardware and its very easy to use. I do recommend you use Ableton only after you've mastered mixing using hardware such as cd players, mixer, vinyl, etc. You can also map Ableton to most Midi controllers out there in the market although its not as good as tracktor when it comes to mapping... if anyone wants any advice on how to use Ableton feel free to contact me

    OSX file conversion


    Supports FLAC, AIFF, MP3 (via lame), AAC/ALAC and others, and even brings most tags and cover art across.

    OSX Utilities


    It's a pay piece of software, but it makes transporting back and forth between traktor and rekordbox very easy.

    Library Management for Serato Live
    ScratchTools (Free) is the ultimate database/crate-management tool for Serato ScratchLIVE. It will work on all supported ScratchLIVE platforms, which are Windows XP, Windows Vista and last not least Mac OSX. This requires some knowledge of using terminal or command prompt in windows if your not familiar they have some great tutorials in their forum.

    Serato-Itch-Sync (Free)
    same concept as scratchtools but was made for serato Itch but can work with serato as well.

    Alchimie Zinc ($29.99)
    Works like the previous two but comes with the added benefit of having a GUI and now works with serato DJ intro and Native traktor

    Recording/editing/Conversion/Misc software: -

    OSX : PC & MAC


    Have been using this software since back in the early 2000's.
    Super powerful software which can record, play, edit track (cut,mix,silence,pitch,fade, leveling, add effects, etc) as well as insert cue [apart from man other functions] ;and on top of all that, it also acts as a file converter.
    Free for life

    I downloaded the so called FREE VirtualDJ 8 just now.

    Are these programs free Really??

    I mean free where we can gig without any "legal" threats etc etc. (not that I use software to do so)

    Do we honestly get what we pay for? I can imagine these are stripped of those important features or something, right?

    I mean, can I DJ straight out with this program at least just WITHIN the computer?
