DJ Cronnor is a DJ-tool for a hybride analog/digital equipped club. It contains a full-featured dualdeck mp3/ogg-player
complete with pitching and some effects, and it has a playlist-system for usage inside a bar. DJCronnor is made to be
controlled without a mouse, so 100%-keyboard-controlled
used with your traditional analog mixer with old-style analogue knobs and faders to have fast no-nonsense control over the volume and the eq in the traditional way
DJ Cronnor is not a toy to demonstrate (semi-automatic) beatmixing with nice graphical animations (like most DJ software).
Also, because you don't need the mouse, you can actually use
it in real-life situations.
DJ Cronnor is not designed for real usage without an analog mixer, at all - there are zero volume controls available in the software (because you don't need them when you have a mixer). So remember: DJCronnor is to be used with a mixer, and without your mouse.
- play .aac, .ogg, .mp3, .wav or .aiff files
- search easy (just start typing) and fast through your files
- search for last added files (like 'date:30')
- for DJ's: a stack with numbers that you might want to play
- for the bar: a playlist system which you can create by drag-and-drop
- ASIO or Direct-Sound drivers for low-latency
- beat-mixing with pitch-control and scrub-control buttons
- 5 small build-in audio-effects, like a flanger, comb-filter, ringmodulator and more
- generate an SQL-query with two tables with all titles and tracks
- 3 invisible levels in scrolling ahead/back, depending on the keystroke length (a few milliseconds - a few seconds - about 15 seconds)
- read MIDI-input from light-controllers
- generate DMX for Entec OpenDMX-USB boxes
- lightweight (needs only about 5+30MB internal memory) so you can run it on very old computers
- includes an integrated webserver 'CronnorCaster' which allows you to search, download and play
(through an included streaming flash player) tracks
Regarding generating DMX, DJCronnor controls -in the current settings- the realtime position of two scanners, several smaller effects like a stroboscope black-light etc,
and not the least: it also calculates and manipulates the color and brightness of four Showtec Led pars -while providing realtime audio. The light system has currently
3 chaser-programs for the scanners, and about 12 chaser-programs for the LED-par's. A Behringer LC2412 is used (connected through an USB-MIDI box) to control
the parameters of the whole. Currently, the whole lightening system is only usefull for you when the sourcecode is adjusted to
your hardware; e-mail the author for more information.
Well, you may now wonder where this all comes from. This is all build for the DJ's of the student-society Biton in Utrecht, the Netherlands. You
can also take a peek at the DJ's website (see at the examples). Because DJ Cronnor can also generate an SQL-query for your collection,
we use it on our website
to have a searchable online index of all our music (the .php file is currently not in the distribution but you can
download it here
Currently, the website at Biton contains more:
it provides an agenda with automatic reminding of several things, automatic repetitive addition
and scheduling of new data, and more. The website also contains a system where people can request new music, where the DJ's
can vote and keep track of what happened to the requested music.
