With the rise of the digital age and the laptop DJ, nothing has become more important than your DJ software. No matter what your controller or tablet, Mac or PC selection may be, your software is at the core of your rig.
Consumers and professionals have one thing in common, they are looking for both value and performance. If the software does everything you need for the right price, it's pretty much time to buy.
Enter Flow 2.5, a DJ software designed by the same people that brought you Mixed In Key. The lay out of the design is simple, functional and to the point- all the basics every DJ needs in their software. Once you have downloaded the program, set up is simple. You add music to Flow, prepare it, and then you are ready to rock.
The layout of the software is intuitive and clean, to begin, use the Preparation screen at home to organize your music. If you know how to use iTunes, you know how to do this easily. For those more musically inclined, you can also create loops and organize your songs by Key, Tempo, and Energy level. You can even customize the software by adding your own DJ name.
Watch this video below to see how it's done:
Once the organization is taken care of, just move over to the Play section to begin your DJ set (Yes, you are already DJing!). With all of Flow 2.5's features, you can even remix live and switch up your set with a dynamic playlist.
