3. Atomix MP3
AtomixMP3 is the ancestor of VirtualDJ, and even though development for this product has been stopped since 2003, many users still use it for two reasons:
First, it was designed to run on i486 computers at 400MHz and 64Mb of RAM, so any computer that’s still alive today should be able to run it without a glitch.
Second, for more than 10 years, we are still to hear someone report a bug or a crash on it.
Of course, its features are a little light compared to the evolution of its big brother VirtualDJ PRO. But if you don’t need the new features, and wants something stable and light, then AtomixMP3 is for you.
AtomixMP3 has a standard two deck player with play/pause/stop/cue buttons, pitch control, a mixer with 3 band equalizers with kills, volume control, gain, crossfader.

MP3Gain analyzes and adjusts mp3 files so that they have the same volume.
MP3Gain does not just do peak normalization, as many normalizers do. Instead, it does some statistical analysis to determine how loud the file actually sounds to the human ear.
Also, the changes MP3Gain makes are completely lossless. There is no quality lost in the change because the program adjusts the mp3 file directly, without decoding and re-encoding.
