Mixxx: A Serious Open-Source Contender to Traktor and Virtual DJ?Mixxx: A Serious Open-Source Contender to Traktor and Virtual DJ?

The market for DJ software has never been bigger, as more and more bedroom DJs shun purchasing traditional equipment such as turntables and CDJs in favour of the more accessible and cheaper software option. As a DJ who got into the hobby through the use of software, I’m always on the lookout for new programs that boast an impressive range of tools, while still remaining affordable for newcomers to DJing.

Mixxx, an open source digital DJ app that started life way back in 2001 as a university project has recently become a hot topic among computer DJs following the 1.10.0 release in December, which added a number of features that until recently were only found on more expensive DJ software such as Traktor and Virtual DJ.

I decided to download Mixxx for myself and thoroughly test it out to see if it truly was a replacement for my current favourites, Traktor and Virtual DJ. Read on for my thoughts.

Watermarked Previews in Item Previews

Recently on Envato Notes we have had a couple of posts discussing the correct way to license and use someone else’s images and assets in preview items. You can catch up on both posts here: Envato Content Policy and Portfolio Review and Use of Assets in Previews on the Envato Marketplaces.

I know that many authors are looking for ways in which they can maintain a high standard of quality for their item previews on the Marketplaces while at the same time ensuring that they are complying with our content policy. With this in mind, today we would like to bring to your attention that our terms of usage grant the right to use any watermarked preview from the Marketplaces in your own item previews so long as it includes a link back to the original item, and so long as the item preview is used only on for Envato Marketplace items.

5 Ways to Use ReplyPantry

If you know me, you know I’m all about doing the most amount of work with the least amount of effort :P If you ever come across a guy at the beach with a tattoo that says I Heart the Pareto Principle, that may well be me. Of course, you’d probably never find me at a beach and since I live in Canada I’m covered in a fine polar bear-like fur so you probably wouldn’t be able to see the tattoo anyway.

But you get the idea…

Your Say: Mac or Windows?

Mac vs PC 43/365 by Louish Pixel

Today we’ll ask the age-old question: Mac or Windows? It will be interesting to see which is most popular in the Envato community.

I’ve been keeping a tally in my head every time I publish an interview or “Meet the Staff” or workspace or desktop post. I think the race is very close.

I’d be keeping a tally on how many use Linux too, but I’m sure it’s already lost the race. But I’ve added an “other” category just in case. And you can select as many operating systems as you use.

So let the race begin. Which operating system do you use?

Mission Accomplished - Finishing the big server move in 2010

For those of you who don’t know Australian music very well Goodbye Cruel World is the title of the greatest hits album Brisbane band Custard released when they broke up. As most of the Envato community isn’t based in Australia, I’m guessing that covers most of you. Goodbye Cruel World also makes a pretty good title for the blog post where I say goodbye to Envato.

This is the stylish workspace of GraphicRiver and PhotoDune author Clemens Posch (clemensposch). Design isn’t just a strong element of Clemens’ files – he has surrounded himself with it!

I’ll let him explain his workspace in his own words:

My workspace based on a simple black Ikea table. A 22″ Eizo TFT monitor connected to a MacBook Pro. In front of it, my Intous4 flipped upside-down because I’m left handed. And the Magic Mouse perfectly presented on my Persian-style mouse pad!
