The USB Mixing Kit. Microphone, headphones, mixing desk and software to let you act like a real real DJ in your bedroom. Without the drugs. Or sleazy hotels. Or hangovers (maybe). Priced at £99.99, with an optional talent pack. Nah just kidding, you’re on your own with this one.
This brilliant box of tricks has a two channel mixer and you can connect your turntable, stereo or headphones directly into it. Simply load the software onto your PC from the CD provided, and two rather cool looking virtual turntables appear on your screen. You just drag and drop your favourite songs onto the turntables and get scratching and pitch blending. A Master Tempo allows you to adjust the speed of your music without altering the pitch, and for the less skilled DJ there’s an excellent gizmo called Automatic Beat Matching, which does what is says on the tin.
