YouBeeDJ Software Overview



This DJ software was designed with an emphasis on making it easy to create and organize lists and the songs in them any way you want.

You can switch between these two modes any time during the operation of this DJ software.

Image shows the control you use to put 'YouBeeDJ' in automatic mode. In ‘Automatic‘ mode the player does all song changes. Play moves from the song you start with, down to the end of a list, then moves to the next list and so on. When all songs have been played, the process starts over.

Image shows the control you use to put 'YouBeeDJ' in manual mode. In ‘Manual‘ mode, no fades are used and no automatic song changes are done. You do all song changes manually. A timed mix between decks is available in this mode.

  • Decks

    • A‘ & ‘B‘ are the primary decks. One is always the ‘Current‘ deck and is identified with a yellow background color. The other is the ‘Next‘ deck and is identified by a green background color. Their background color switches with each song change. Lets you easily track which output device is in use.
    • The ‘Cue‘ deck is used to make different start, end & loop positions for songs. Each song can have up to 10 different entries for each position type.
    • Outputs: This DJ software only uses output devices installed on the operating system. Select which device to use on each playback deck. You can only configure the player when it is empty and it is automatic when only one output device is found.

  • Modes

    • Random: This mode is only available in ‘Automatic‘ mode. Controls include:
      • Initiate ‘Random‘ mode.
      • Randomly select another next song.
      • Set how the songs in lists are processed in this mode.
    • Fade-Out: Initiate a timed fade-out of the current song, with or without a delay. Toggle the delay on (Image shows the delay is on.) or off (Image shows the delay is off.). A delayed fade-out can be cancelled any time but once the fade-out starts it cannot be stopped.
    • Repeat: Temporarily replace the next song with a copy of the current song. This mode can be used in both ‘Automatic‘ and ‘Manual‘ modes.
    • Single Play: In this mode, the player finishes playing the current song and then stops. No song change is done when the player stops. This control is not available in ‘Manual‘ mode because a song left unattended in manual mode always stops playing when it reaches the end.

      CAUTION: Changes made to volume stop levels are reflected immediately on the volume controls. This allows for the levels to be set based on a live situation.
    • Equalizer Frequency Editor: One feature that sets this equalizer apart from most is that you set the frequency associated with each band. (Same as the ‘High, Mid,Low’ controls). This allows for a great deal of flexibility in how you customize the equalizer to suit your needs. Save the values and frequencies any time as ‘presets‘. Load them into the player at any time.
    • Live Queue: When you have request but you don’t want to change any lists, add them to the ‘Live Queue‘ list. This list cannot be saved and is always first in the display grid but it can not be the only list.
