EZ-Mixer (http://www.ez-mixer.com) is an MP3 remixing software package for Mac and PC emulating a typical DJ two track mixing desk, with all the features required to produce live remixes - just like a DJ in a club.
In Live mode, EZ-Mixer includes everything that would be used by a DJ during a live-performance, such as: Song position controls with loop and markers points, manual and automatic cross-fades, BPM determination and adaptation to match different songs tempos, pitch/tempo control on each track, master, pan, bass and treble controls, plus sample triggering using the keyboard. EZ-Mixer also offers pre-fade cue monitoring on a single audio card or separate output support with multiple audio cards.
In Compilation mode, EZ-Mixer, allows you to organize 4 play-lists with 25 songs each for a total of 100 songs per session. Compilations can be exported as separate files (batch mode) or as a unique mix, including time and position selectable cross-fades.
EZ-Mixer doesn't only play and save MP3s but also supports the import/export of a multitude of other audio formats including Wav, Aiff, Qdesign, QuickTime, etc... AND direct song ripping from audio CDs.
