Nowadays everyone wants to get into the music game a lot of people think they can DJ. There are plenty of Android DJ Apps to let you mix from your phone, so we decided to compile a short list to highlight the Top 3 “Free” DJ Apps out there. We also mean “Free” with a little bit of sarcasm as most apps are “freemium” and hardly anything is truly free these days.
1. Droid DJ Lite
Droid DJ Lite by Spartacus Rex takes the top spot on our list as it’s packed full of features and it’s about as free as you’re going to get. The app has Twin Decks with pitch, a visual mixer, auto pitch set, BMP counter and a whole lot more. Droid DJ comes also comes with 4 different skins which actually affect your performance. If you want to go sleek and speedy you’ll want to choose low res, but they’ve got some Hi-Res decks if you’d prefer to go that route. Droid DJ Lite is about as full featured as you can get, and you’ll get to use all the features with only one drawback. You will have an ad banner to deal with, and the pitch control is disabled on the second deck. You get more than enough features to really check out the app, and if you want to get rid of the ads and fix that second deck it will only cost you $2.99. Both the free and paid versions of Droid DJ Lite can be found on Google Play.
2. Party Mixer
Party Mixer is a cool 100% free Android app that lets you play music and mix like a DJ while you’re on the go. You can play 2 songs simultaneously and cross-fade between the tracks as well. We really liked the playlist feature which lets you drag-and-drop tracks to a deck; if your lazy you can also set the app to Auto DJ and let it mix for you. It may not have a ton of features and it could use an update, but it’s been around for awhile, it is ad-free and works like a charm. You can pick up Pun Software’s Party Mixer for free on Google Play.
3. DJ Studio 3
DJ Studio 3 is the latest and greatest from developers Beatronik makers of another cool DJ App Pocket DJ Vintage. DJ Studio 3 has everything you could ever want or need from a Pocket DJ app as it puts the ability to pitch, scratch or loop in the palm of your hand. You get 2 decks each with a 3-band EQ and 2 CUE points per deck. It has a 16 channel customizable sampler, Auto-mixing, and lets you live record your mixes and share them on SoundCloud. If you didn’t think it could get any cooler you’re wrong as you can use the app on your phone, tablet or Google TV. We’re not sure how well it would work on G-TV, but the fact that it “can” work with it is pretty damned cool. The only drawback to this wonderful app is that you have a playback limit of 1 minute in the “Free” version. If you like what you find in the free version you can upgrade to the full version for $4.99.
