The friendly user interface makes it easy to be a DJ from your keyboard. You can use your mouse or, thanks to a built-in map, spend a few minutes learning the keyboard shortcuts.
I was pleasantly surprised by the scalability of the main control screen. As you resize you get more carts, decks, and a wider waveform display. When I maximized the window on a 24-inch monitor, I had 90 carts to load sound clips and two CDs worth of decks to load music. What's Not:
Podcast Station suffers from a bad case of 1990s battleship gray. As trendy and hip as podcasting has become, Podcast Station looks dated. A fresh user interface would not just be an aesthetic improvement but could help the user find buttons and clips quicker.
Missing tooltips for the AGC, PRO, and DYN buttons would be useful to have right on the main screen. AGC turns on the very useful automatic gain control system so your sounds are all relatively the same volume.
PRO turns on a slightly more advanced user interface so you can auto-crossfade and auto-segue between decks. I'm not convinced the difference between the PRO and non-PRO interface was so great that it warranted this feature, but maybe in future versions the interfaces will diverge more.
The DYN button is a fine tuner for fader dynamics, allowing adjustment if your fades between decks are not smooth because of a mismatch between your hardware and the clip quality.
