Description Mixxx is a cross-platform DJ program that lets you mix MP3, OGG, WAV and AIFF music files using a crossfader, tri-band equalizer, cue points plus customisable control of knobs and sliders using keyboard shortcuts or hardware MIDI devices such as music keyboards or control surfaces.

The left side of the program has controls for tracks being played on channel 1 and the right side has controls for channel 2. Playback controls are fairly straightforward, with independent track volume sliders and buttons for stop, pause/play, fast forward, rewind, tempo adjustment (slower/faster), and gain (volume boost). Each channel also has controls to adjust the low, mid and high frequencies of the track being played, ideal for smoothly mixing any kind of track.

Each channel displays the waveform of each track as it plays, which helps you gauge if a track is going to go ambient or kick in. This area also displays a track's estimated beats per minute (bpm/tempo), title/artist, current position (in minutes) and estimated beat markers (the blue dots). By right-clicking on the waveform you can zoom in even closer, and left-clicking before dragging the mouse left or right allows you to cycle a track backwards or forwards.

The controls in the middle of the program include a master volume and left/right speaker balance, headphone controls and the trusty cross fader. At full left, the cross fader will play only channel 1. At full right, only channel 2 and anywhere between will mix the two.
