Everything You Need, However You DJ

Four Decks, Advanced Controls

Drop a song onto a deck in Mixxx to kick off your next mix. Each deck features a scratchable, scrolling waveform that marks beats and cue points, along with a whole-song waveform overview for quick seeking.

Time Stretch and Vinyl Emulation
Speed up and slow down songs without changing their pitch with time stretching, or just change the musical pitch so your songs play in harmony. Our high-quality interpolator can also reproduce classic vinyl sounds like backspins.

Beat Looping
Found a sweet loop or need to extend your mix while you prep the next track? Instantly loop a 4, 8, or 16 beat segment with the press of a button.

Powerful Master Sync
Engage master sync on your decks and they'll stay locked in time even if you change speed. Construct remixes on the fly with multiple tracks and loops without losing control.

Four hotcue points can be dropped or triggered with ease. Our playback engine is finely tuned for accurate, rapid fire hotcue triggering so you can mash and remix as hard as you want to without a hiccup.

Beat Rolls and Censor
Play with rhythm by triggering short loops and reverse-playback effects. The track stays in time so you don't miss a beat.

Intuitive Pitchbend
Ramping pitchbend ensures any tempo nudging is smoothly applied, just like with vinyl.

Broad Format Support
Our mature audio decoders deliver pristine sound with rock-solid stability. Mixxx plays MP3, M4A/AAC, Ogg Vorbis, Opus, FLAC, WAVE, and AIFF formats.

EQ and Crossfader Control
Mixxx features multiple choices of audiophile filters with adjustable EQ shelves. Crossfader curve control lets you deliver quick cuts or long, smooth crossfades.

Quad Sampler Decks

Perfect for dropping that vocal sample or airhorn, our quad sampler decks are routable through either playback channel.

Built-in Effects

Add sizzle to your mix with reverb, echo, flange, and more. Assign a Quick Effect to your controller's filter knob to add color to your sound instantly. Bad PA system or lousy room? Use the built-in master EQ to smooth out the sound.

Powerful Library

The Mixxx music library was designed from the ground up for DJs. Powered by a high-performance database, accessing and organizing your music is easy and intuitive.


Crates and Playlists
Sort your music the way you want.

Disk Browsing
Need to find music outside your library? Browse and load tunes from any hard disk.

iTunes and Traktor Library Integration
Drop fresh tracks from your iTunes or Traktor library right into your mix.

MusicBrainz Tag Lookup
Fingerprint your tracks and fetch missing tags from MusicBrainz.

BPM Detection and Sync

Newly upgraded BPM detection library does an even better job finding the beat in even the toughest rhythms. Instantly sync the tempo of four songs for seamless beatmixing. Each waveform view marks each beat to help guide your mixing.

Auto DJ

Need a break? Create a quick playlist and let Auto DJ take over. Automatic crossfading watches your back until you return.

Designer Skins

Includes 3 exclusive designer skins with configurable layouts.

Record and Broadcast your Mix

Mixxx includes a number of recording and broadcasting features because you can't get your name out there without sharing your DJ mixes.


Record your live mixes to the lossless WAVE or compressed Ogg Vorbis formats, and optional MP3 support. Recordings are automatically archived in the library for fast access.

Live Broadcasting

Stream your mixes live over the internet to your audience and friends through a Shoutcast or Icecast server. Read more

ReplayGain Normalization

Song gain is automatically adjusted when loading a deck so your mixes always maintain a consistent volume. Mixxx reads existing ReplayGain tags and analyzes songs that don't have them.

Quad Microphone Input

Whether you're dropping thick reggae vocals over some dub, giving shoutouts on the air, or throwing a rap battle, microphone input is as easy as toggling one of the talkover buttons.

Comprehensive DJ Hardware Support
