Q: What does the Audio Limiter do?
A: When you increase the gain / eqs or mix some high-level-recorded songs, it eliminates all the distorsions that may appear. Please note that the Limiter works only on the main output (speakers).
Q: How can I define keyboard shortcuts?
A: You need the Pro version to assign functions to keyboard and/or a hardware DJ console.
Q: Why does my mp3s sound so bad?
A: On Windows the mp3 built-in decoder might be damaged. You should download and install iTunes for best quality (from www.apple.com)
Q: What is SPLIT mode?
A: You need to activate the audio split mode if you have a simple stereo soundcard (no multichannel) but you still want separate outputs for speakers and headphones. The speakers signal will come out on the Left channel and the headphones signal on the Right channel of the simple stereo output. Obviously, you will also need a signal splitter to use the signals in this way.
Q: Multichannel output doesn't work on Windows with my soundcard. What is wrong?
A: On Windows, the multichannel soundcard must have a WDM driver to work ok. Also, you must activate the multichannel setting in DJ Mixer Express.
Q: What are the demo version limitations?
A: The demo version may be used only for 30 days for evaluation purposes only. It works only for 20 minutes per session, and mix recording and list 'saving as' are disabled.
Q: Can I record my mixes?
A: Yes, you can record your mixes in AIFF (Mac) or WAV (Windows) format. You can later burn the file to an audio CD using your favourite CD-burner application, or you can transfer it to your iPod.
Q: What can I do if the sound is not hearing well (stutter, pops, clicks, skips)?
A: Well, you would probably need to upgrade your computer to at least a 1GHz processor. If you already have this, maybe you should change your soundcard with a better one.
Q: What soundcards do you recommend for the best audio quality?
A: There are professional soundcards available for both Mac and Windows from M-Audio (www.m-audio.com), RME (www.rme-audio.com), and many others like EMU, Emagic, ESI, Event, Antex, GadgetLabs, DigiDesign, etc. Please note that these are very expensive professional soundcards. You might also try consumer high-quality soundcards like M-Audio Revolution, CreativeLabs, TerraTec, etc
Q: How do I import an M3U playlist file that has songs with special characters in it? (eg. letters like ü, á, ñ, etc)
A: The solution is to convert that file into UTF-8 mode.
You need to download a free text editor (Notepad++), open M3U the file into it and select from the menu Format->Convert to UTF8.
Save the file, close the editor and try to use it in FutureDecks again.

DJ Mixer Express 2.0.0 all 2.x.x versions will be FREE for you. When a major release is made which includes extremely
many or very important new features you are offered a special upgrade price (less than a quarter of the full price). If you
