PCDJ Red VRM
PCDJ Red VRM is a powerful application that allows you to manage playlists and to mix songs. It is designed as a DJ tool that can be used at home or for parties. You only need the songs and a powerful speaker system to have a little fun.
The program enables you to create multiple playlists in order to organize your music collection and to easily find a certain song. You can organize the playlists into groups and set a group to monitor a folder from your local hard drive. This feature allows you to refresh a certain song list without closing the application or adding the new files individually.
In order to easily find a song the user can edit the ID3 tag of the MP3 files and change the name of the song or the artist directly from the application. Sometimes the files are moved from their previous location and the program cannot find them. Using the folder monitoring feature and the ability to delete the broken links you can make sure that your playlist are fully functional.
The music player has a two sided interface that allows you to play two songs at the same time and combine the sound. This enables you to apply different preferences for each song and to control the playback in real time.
To mix the songs you can adjust the volume and the tempo of each song by simply moving the sliders from the interface just like a DJ turntable. You can also use the equalizer and the song mixer to combine the songs. An extra feature is the automatic crossfade that enables you to switch between songs with one click.
The interface of the PCDJ Red VRM seems complicated but it is not that hard to use. However, beginners should invest some time in getting used to the functions of the program before starting to mix music for parties. The application does not have a help file so you need to learn the main features as you are using them.
If you are a music enthusiast and a creative person, PCDJ Red VRM can help you become a DJ and mix songs for your friends. The application is no longer supported but am improved alternative is available: PCDJ DEX 2.
