With a clear, light grey interface, CrossDJ Free looks good. There are two decks, with waveforms displayed for each. Above the decks both waveforms are shown together, so you can easily see how beats match up. There are quite a lot of controls squeezed into CrossDJ Free's interface, but they are all useful. Each deck has cue and play controls, and you can save up to six play locators for each track.

Professional or experiences DJs will miss the more advanced features not available in CrossDJ Free. However, it's an ideal application for learning digital DJing, and an excellent free option! With some practice you can create excellent sounding mixes making it perfect for parties.
