    I'm aware of MegSeg and Traktor but does anybody know of any other Warez out there that are very good but not too well known. I've loaded both of these other Apps and they seem so involve but in all fairness, I just breezed through them and didn't really get too involved. Does anybody have any tips, suggestions or recommendations?? Oh, or even an App that links with your iTunes library. Thanks!

    Well, maybe you should have another look at Traktor. It is fairly involved, but it's a DJ tool, it's going to be. It depends what you want to do. If you want a "jukebox" so to speak, you can't do much better than iTunes.

    If you want all the tools a DJ needs, Traktor is it. It will read your iTunes files (it looks for mp3's on your hd, right...) but it has it's own database becuase it needs to add info like BPM's, loop points, etc. It should pick up new tracks added to iTunes if you get it to scan your iTunes music folder.

    Another option might be Dekstasy from Sonophile (and it's free). I haven't played with it yet but it seems pretty cool.

    Other than that I don't think there are too many options. Let us know if you come across any!

    I downloaded the Demo. I'll think about buying it. My option. SmartAss.


    Out of all of them Traktor does seem like the best. I'll have to really dig deep into it. I'm sure it' s better than most Window options as well.

    Traktor comes on an hybrid/cross platform CD. It actually wasn't released for Mac OS until v2.0...

    and I'm not a smartass..!
