Disc-jockeys have come a long way but, as far as DJing tools
are concerned, there are still few applications that support
hands-on interaction over Virtual DJ systems, and those are
typically reduced to traditional input devices. With direct
user-feedback from an accompanying group of DJ experts
accounted for, we propose a Virtual DJ system with nat-
ural interaction, paired with a low-learning curve and an
emphasis in user-oriented design. Finally, in order to draw
conclusions on the adequacy of multitouch towards DJing,
our prototype was compared against standard DJ solutions
by a panel of DJ experts.
