Zulu DJ is a music app for PCs that lets you create your own playlists so you can try your hand at being a DJ.
Have you thought about DJ-ing but weren't sure where to start? Zulu DJ software is a functional, and simple music app that will get you started with minimal fuss.
Zulu DJ features two decks and a panel for your playlist. Users can drag and drop MP3s onto the interface and they'll be added to the playlist. Once they're in the playlist, you can drag tracks into Zulu DJ's decks. Tracks are analyzed as you load them, so when you play them you'll be told the beats per minute (bpm).
Controls on the Zulu DJ interface are pretty basic and self explanatory, meaning users shouldn't have a problem getting started. There are a couple of obvious features missing though, and the main one is that it's not possible to drag the wave display manually in order to find the exact spot you want to start a track. It's possible to select start points, but it's not very easy or accurate.
While it's too basic for professional DJs, Zulu's great for amateurs who just want to mess around. The Sync button will match your track's bpm, making smooth transitions really easy. You can also set up your own hot keys for most of the features of Zulu DJ Software. The virtual play buttons are a bit less responsive though.
Zulu DJ boasts simplicity and is a good starting point for any budding DJs out there.
