Virtual DJ for LinuxnMint 19.1
« on: February 22, 2019, 11:08:15 pm »
Hello all, I am trying to find and download Virtual Dj for linux but cannot find it or similar. Basically, I am looking for a DJ application like Serato Dj, Virtual Dj or CrossDJ. I know that the above names might not be available on linux but I am trying to find alternatives. Could any one please suggest some and where to download them from?
Appreciating your response in advance
Sabinus

How about Mixxx and/or TerminatorX

They're in the default repos .. to install just run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install mixxx
and/or
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install terminatorx

websites
https://www.mixxx.org/
and/or
https://terminatorx.org/

[EDIT]

There is also BpmDJ
http://bpmdj.yellowcouch.org/index.html
but that requires Java, and isn't in the default repos.

Or depending on what you're trying to do, maybe just audacity would do
https://www.audacityteam.org/
which is also in the repos
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install audacity

Mark Greaves, You are a star. Thank you very much. I have been able to install both and can see them in my Linux Mint 19.1 (Cinnamon) system.

You're most welcome :)

Mixxx seems to have a great user manual linked at the top of their homepage
https://www.mixxx.org/manual/latest/
which can also be downloaded as a pdf
https://www.mixxx.org/manual/latest/en-GB/Mixxx-Manual.pdf
and a support forum
https://www.mixxx.org/forums/

Not bad for free eh! :)
