Here’s a list of 5 free DJ extensions for Chrome which you can use in order to mix music right from inside the web browser. It seems that as time passes by, Chrome is being upgraded with more and more functionalities so much so that you can now actually find DJ extensions and apps inside the Chrome store which can help you mix music. Songs can be loaded either from your computer directly or from online music sharing services like Soundcloud and Mixify, depending on the extension. There’s also a whole heap of effects and other music mixing tools which are available.
Mixify Turntables Extension for Chrome:
Mixify Turntables is a free DJ extension for Chrome which allows you to mix up to 2 tracks at once. Songs are mixed using a relatively advanced mixing table with over a dozen different effects and audio mixing tools being available. Some of the available mixing tools include a crossfader, vinyl scratcher, samples, two turntables, effects panel, etc.
One of the two turntables that you get with Mixify can be seen on the image above. Songs are “dragged and dropped” from the list of available tracks on Soundcloud or Mixify. Song there can be searched by name using the search too at the top of the right sidebar list.
Get Mixify Turntables.
Until AM Virtual Turntables
Until AM Virtual Turntables is basically the same as Mixify, a two track DJ extension for Chrome with one exception that you can upload music from your computer.
We again have two turntables with a sidebar on the right where now next to being able to load up tracks from Soundcloud, there’s also a tab for uploading local files. Down below, underneath the turn table you can add and adjust effects to the mix.
Those who are interested in simplicity and would just like to see two records where the “scratch” effect can be played with will love JukeBox.
JukeBox doesn’t have advanced effects, just what you see on the image above. Songs are added to the mixing tables via drag and drop from a local folder. Click on the play pin to start playing and “scratching” the song.
From simplicity we’re jumping back to a more advanced and feature rich free DJ extension for Chrome.
This is PartyCloud. As you might have guessed it from its name, PartyCloud allows you to load up up to two songs from the 20 million or so large library of songs which is available on Soundcloud. Available mixing tools include beatsync, scratching, loops and various other effects.
My Cloud Mixer
Last extension in this list also uses Soundcloud as a source of audio tracks for mixing, only it offers a much more advanced interface.
As you can see, there aren’t any turntables in the traditional sense, but instead you get two equalizer spots where songs can be loaded. At the bottom song browser is available where songs from Soundcloud can either be filtered based on genre or you can find what you want using a search tool. Apart from having everything that extensions mentioned above have, My Cloud Mixer also offers waveforms, VU meters, beat detection, spectrum analyzers, filters and more.
