Auto DJ is an uncomplicated free DJ mixing software that's ideal for private parties and other events where you need better sound mixing options or prefer not to just play songs from a playlist.

When you start the program for the first time you notice that the interface can be separated into three parts. You find two music players at the top, a playlist with available songs below those players and settings on the right.

The two players always list the currently playing song and the next song in line. The program can automatically fade between songs or leave that option to the user's manual intervention.

At best, all that you need to do is to load a playlist or songs into the program and click on the Start Auto DJ button to let the dj software handle the rest.

You get more control if you handle the mixing and fading manually. Next to each music player are controls to increase or decrease the playback rate, that is the speed of the playback, and the standard music player controls like increasing or decreasing the song's volume or stopping it.

The options on the right allow you to specify a fade duration and type. Available types are linear crossfade, scratch and custom fade between which you can switch easily.

A custom fade editor is available to customize the fade duration and volume in steps on a graph.

Songs can also be added via drag and drop to the interface, and you can load or save playlists to speed up the setup. The program does not support m3u playlists, only its own format and basic text lists of songs. That's one of the major issues that I have with the dj mixing software considering that you can only add one song at a time via the Playlist menu. It is however possible to drag and drop a folder full of music onto the designated drag and drop area of Auto DJ to load several songs at once into the program's playlist.

Auto DJ requires Windows Media Player to be installed on the system. The advantage of that is that it supports all music files that Windows Media Player supports, the disadvantage that it is a dependency that not every Windows user will like.

Additional mixing options and song manipulation features would be welcome as well. For now, fading is all that you can do with the mixing software.

Interested users can download the Auto DJ application from the developer's website at Sourceforge. It is compatible with all versions of Windows provided that Windows Media Player is installed.

        “SourceForge está (sic) abusando de la confianza que nosotros y nuestros usuarios habíamos puesto en su servicio en el pasado”, según el proyecto GIMP . Desde 2013, SourceForge ha estado empaquetando junkware junto con sus instaladores, a veces sin el permiso de un desarrollador.

        Actualización : desde que se escribió este artículo, SourceForge se ha vendido a una nueva compañía que detuvo el programa DevShare que se discute en este artículo. Estamos dejando este artículo aquí como referencia histórica, pero desde entonces ha detenido estas prácticas sombrías.

        No descargues software de SourceForge si puedes evitarlo. Muchos proyectos de código abierto ahora alojan a sus instaladores en otros lugares, y las versiones en SourceForge pueden incluir software basura. Si tienes que descargar algo de SourceForge, ten mucho cuidado.

        Sí, SourceForge es uno de los sitios web de descarga incorrecta
        RELACIONADO: Sí, cada sitio de descarga de software gratuito sirve crapware (esta es la prueba)

        SourceForge acumuló una gran cantidad de buena voluntad en el pasado, siendo un lugar centralizado para descargar software de código abierto y alojar repositorios de software. A lo largo de los años, más proyectos se han trasladado a otros servicios de alojamiento de repositorios como GitHub.

        En 2012, Dice Holdings compró SourceForge (y Slashdot) de Geeknet. En 2013, SourceForge habilitó una función llamada “DevShare”. DevShare es una función que los desarrolladores pueden habilitar para sus propios proyectos. Si un desarrollador habilita esta función, descargará su software de SourceForge para descubrir que se ha incluido en el propio instalador de SourceForge, que empuja el software no deseado intrusivo a su sistema. SourceForge y los desarrolladores ganan dinero al ofrecerle este software, justo como prácticamente cualquier otro sitio de descarga y el distribuidor de software gratuito lo hace en Windows .

        DevShare requiere que el propietario del proyecto “opte” para habilitar esta característica en su proyecto, aunque ahora están hospedando una variedad de proyectos agrupados con software basura contra los deseos de sus desarrolladores.

      Appears as if the developer has removed downloads. Could not find a version either on a quick search.
