It’s your choice. if you like Partycloud, go ahead and buy the Mixvibes controller.

This is the free home edition of #1 DJ software in the world.
We didn’t put it in the first position. The reason is that the home edition is pretty limited for controller usage.
You have only 10 minutes with your controller and after that keyboard is in charge.
Like most free versions, Virtual DJ Home Edition also comes with lack of full functionality.

You always have the option to upgrade to full version for a fee.

This might be a good choice if you want to use it at home just for practicing.

UltraMixer comes with lots of features that you would find on other major DJ software.

KraMixer is quite simple and for mostly home use. It doesn’t seem to be MIDI compatible as there are no settings for it.
