Deejaysystem Mk-II is a mixer and audio player for professional DJs.

The world of DJing has evolved a lot in the last few decades. From Vinyl Records to DJ CD Players. Subsequently, DJ CD Players also were able to play MP3 files, and actually it can play songs directly from PC, tablet (iPad), mobile (iPhone), iTunes or Spotify. Without a doubt, the feeling of Djing using Vinyl Turntables is not comparable with the new digital DJ devices, but even so, the new technologies make accessible to everyone the possibility of practice and improve the skills of a Disc Jockey.

Deejaysystem Mk-II is a software for DJs who want to have on the PC a similar experience to that of DJing with DJ CD players. The interface of this program is inspired by the famous DJ CD Players Denon DN2000F MK-II, and offers all the features we can expect from a DJ digital players of that style.

With this program we will be able to play CDs and files: mp3, wav, wma, ogg, aiff, mo3, it, s3m, mp2, mp1. It is surprising the ability to play the old format MOD (developed in 1987, to be used in a software developed for Amiga computers).

The screen is divided into two parts: the upper and the lower.
In the upper part are located CD Players and the mixer:

  • CD Players (digital media players): Here is where the songs are loaded and played. The design is very simple and at the same time very powerful and intuitive. To load a song, we will drag it to the desired CD player, or we will add it to the playlist (bottom). There are buttons to move to the next/previous song, fast forward a few milliseconds in the song (very useful for positioning a cue point), CUE (point of playback), Play/Pause.
    In the right-hand side of each CD Player are located buttons that will allow us to control the speed of the song:
    • Buttons +/-: increase/decrease the speed of the song while they are pressed. When the button is released, the song returns to its original speed.
      Below these buttons there is a black rectangle that serves to increase or decrease the speed of the song. To make use of this button we click with the mouse, and without releasing the mouse button, move the mouse up (increases the speed of the song) or down (decreasing the speed of the song). When the mouse button is released, the song will return to its original speed.

    • Vertical Bar: if we move the bar up, it will decrease the speed of the song (less BPMs), if we move it down, this increases the speed of the song. This bar is the first thing we must use to synchronize the speed of the song, since it adjusts the Pitch (speed) of the song.
      At the side of this bar there is a green button if we click on it, it will restore the song to the original speed.
  • Mixer: This mixer is very simple and only consists of 2 channels (one for each digital player). Each channel has a bar for increase/decrease the volume, a button to mute the channel (m), a gain knob for volume, and a button to send the sound to the headphones.
    There is also an horizontal bar than mix the sound of both channels (crossfader).

At the bottom is located the playlist and its options. We can add new songs by dragging them to the list, or by using the buttons: add file or add folder. Playlists can be saved to load them at any time.
On the right side of the playlist is located the Auto Play option. This option allows to play all the songs automatically, one after the other. We can choose if the playback order is random, if the list loops when it reaches the end, or the type of transition is made from one song to another.

One of the features that make this software an excellent program, is the possibility of handle the CD Players with the keyboard. The response time of the program is flawless, and will give us the feeling of using a real DJ CD Players. We will describe some of the most important keyboard shortcuts:

  • Control Left + Tab: It changes from one CD Player to another.
  • Space Bar: Play/Pause the song of the CD Player selected.
  • Key + and -: Increases/Decreases the speed of the song. The variation of speed will last as long as we keep the keys pressed.
  • Shift + Key +/-: Increases/Decreases the pitch (speed of the song) by 0.01
  • Control + Key +/-: Increases/Decreases the pitch by 0.10
  • Shift + Control + Key +/-: Increases/Decreases the pitch by 1.00
  • Key Left/Right: Increases/Decreases the current position of the song by 0.01 seconds.
  • Control + Key Left/Right: Increases/Decreases the current position of the song by 0.10 seconds.
  • Shift + Control + Key Left/Right: Increases/Decreases the current position of the song by 1 seconds.

These keyboard shortcuts allows the fast control of the software, reaching a level of having a very similar control to real DJ Digital Playerts.

The latest version of Deejaysystem Mk-II ware released on June 2008. Even so, it works perfectly on modern Operating Systems (Windows 8.1). Without a doubt, this is a totally recommended software for those who are just starting out and want to learn how to synchronize the songs without additional aid, or for those professional DJs who want to have an additional simple digital players.

Is paid software, and offers a demo that lasts 30 minutes and that it is fully functional. So during those 30 minutes will be able to evaluate all the features and functionalities of the software. At the end of 30 minutes, the program will exit.
