    I am using Leopard so what are some good programs that are free to download that I can use to mix songs?

    Fruity Loops is not a good program to mix with, it's more for production.

    Not free, but Ableton Live is a good tool for DJing if you want to DJ on the computer.

    Also requires turntables or CDJs though. Still, definitely worth it. That's what I use in conjunction with regular vinyl. It's a really great way to expand your library.

    If you want to DJ using a laptop/computer, the best thing to do is to get an audio interface with at least two audio outputs, such as the M-Audio Fast Track Pro, route it to an external mixer, and use Ableton Live as your DAW.

    no turntables no care

    "mixing" on keyboard and mouse isnt the same. you dont really even do any beatmatching or [anything since the computer can basically do all that. ruins all the fun

    :werd: I've been using Technics for the last 12 years. :hs:

    Ableton sets can surprisingly still be fun, only because you can do so much with it but nothing beats vinyl.
